ALBUM AVAILABILITY
Bootlegs long represented this score as its only form on CD, most of them derived from the First Born Records bootleg of 1998. Several bootleg variants existed thereafter, sometimes combined with other Zimmer scores and varying in track titles and quantities of material.

The 2011 Kritzerland album was limited to 1,200 copies and available for a retail price of $20 only through soundtrack specialty outlets. That product sold out within weeks and immediately escalated to $50 in value. The 2017 Notefornote re-issue was limited to 1,000 copies and widely available for $14 to $17 upon debut. It sold 700 copies within the first year of distribution.

Buy it... on any of the various score-only album releases if you desire the defiantly beautiful, gospel-laced finale cue to go with the commercially available presentation of the famous "Thunderbird" suite from the score.

Avoid it... if you expect to hear more than eight to ten minutes of truly meaningful material in this work, because outside of the stylish guitar performances and that finale, there isn't much to impress on any full presentation of the short score.

Zimmer
Zimmer
Thelma & Louise: (Hans Zimmer) Director Ridley Scott's foray into dark comedy for 1991's Thelma & Louise was extremely well received, generating substantial awards recognition and surprising grosses. It has also become something of a pop culture icon, representing both road trips and women gone astray. Two contemporary ladies from Middle America with little excitement in their lives go on a vacation for a few days in their 1966 Thunderbird convertible. Along their way, they shoot and kill a drunk rapist and assume that the authorities will prosecute them, so they start a journey to Mexico while eluding both local authorities and the F.B.I. They become hardened avengers in the latter stages, robbing a store and destroying a fuel tanker. When they're finally cornered at the edge of the Grand Canyon, they famously drive their Thunderbird off the edge and plunge to their deaths. Although Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon were far from Scott's ideal choices for the lead roles, they both earned Academy Award nominations. (Alas, facing off in the same category, they both lost). The film also introduced a shirtless Brad Pitt to the mainstream and allowed fan favorite Harvey Keitel to keep his clothes on. Despite all the problems that Scott faced with the producers of Black Rain over Hans Zimmer's unappreciated score for that film, the two continued their collaboration in Thelma & Louise. Thankfully, this new assignment went as smoothly as it could have for Zimmer. The film features surprisingly little original score in its duration, but Scott was so enthusiastic about Zimmer's theme for the fade-out finale and end credits that he shot an all-new opening titles scene simply to accommodate another presentation of that theme. Zimmer, meanwhile, has always accepted praise for this theme, titled "Thunderbird," but has never particularly understood why his fans want to hear the rest of the score.
