  23. Ladyhawke Theme: Single Version 3.35 (US CD July 1995: GNP Crescendo GNPD 8042)
Recorded in 1984, my guess is in the summer, after VULTURE CULTURE (which was recorded May-June 1984) and before the recordings started for STEREOTOMY in Oct 1984. The movie premiered in Europe in March 1985, and in USA in april. Composed by Andrew Powell, produced by Alan Parsons. The 'APP' style tracks performed by the 'standard APP musicians line-up' of Ian Bairnson, Stuart Elliott and David Paton. Track 23 on the CD implies that there was a single, but I have never seen any evidence of that.
