Three years after the huge success of movie "Rocky", and the musical soundtrack that made it so distinctive, Composer Bill Conti again masterminds a magnificent score for Rocky II. And folks, this is another masterpiece. If you enjoyed the original score (and who doesn't), you will love this album as well.

As a sequel to the original, this soundtrack contains many of the same arrangements that marked the first film score. The tracks have been remixed, but are just as good, if not better than the originals. For example, Rocky II's "Gonna Fly Now" has a late 70's disco beat and features a chorus of children (who in the picture run with Rocky during his training run in the street and up the steps to the Philadelphia City Hall). The remix works well, has more energy than the original,

and is highly satisfying and inspiring.

There are two vocal songs on this album. Bill Conti's wife, Shelby, co-wrote the vocal ballad "All of My Life." The song is preformed by DeEtta Little and Nelson Pigford, who also performed on the original Rocky in "You Take My Heart Away". "All of My Life" was not included in the picture, but is a solid romantic song that depicts Rocky and Adrian's deep love for one another.

The other vocal track, "Two Kinds of Love" is performed by Frank Stallone, (Sly's talented brother) who also wrote the song. He sings it with his street group around a trash can fire, as Rocky carries Adrian home on their wedding night.

Last, but certainly not least, Conti inspires the listener with a stirring and dramatic theme used in the title fight with Apollo Creed, "Conquest", and is perhaps the best dramatic track on the album.

1979: Rocky was back in "Rocky II"! Audiences could be entertained once again by their favorite hero. So could music lovers, with this stunning soundtrack.
Only 8 tracks?!! That may be your first reaction, but don't you worry, almost every musical piece of the film is included on this soundtrack!

--->(WARNING! The explanations of the Tracks can contain SPOILERS of the Movie!!)<---

1. Redemption - Yeah, Rocky is back! This song really captures that feeling. Being the main theme of Rocky II, Redemption is a completely new music track with hints in it that it is true music from a Rocky film. Rocky has just gone the distance and is transported to the hospital. The ambulances are riding through the dark city which is heard in the music, with another theme screaming: "Rocky is back!" through it. Length: (2:33)

2. Gonna Fly Now - Back is Rocky, so is the heartpumping Rocky theme! This time, a bit different from the original. More funky and even more seventies than the one the Rocky I soundtrack. Now, instead of adult voices, childeren are now singing the lyrics of the song, which gives a great power-up feeling. Length: (2:33)

3. Conquest - Rocky's back in the ring with Apollo for a rematch and gives absolutely everything he has got! The music shows this powerfully. A fantastic tence fight needs fantastic tence music must have Bill Conti thought, and he delivers that sort of music in a perfect way! When Rocky feels his strength leaving him, the music shows that feeling. When he's back fighting, the music lets you hear that! The music is just screaming: Go for it Rock!" Length: (4:36)

4. Vigil - Rocky's one and only true love Adrain has slipped into a coma. His world is upside down, his emotions are high up.

This CD is awesome, just like the whole Rocky series (except Rocky V, the only good songs on there is Go For It! (Heart and Fire) and The Measure of A Man). You've got Redemption, Conquest, Overture (which is a combo of Fanfare for Rocky from Rocky I, The Final Bell from Rocky I, Going The Distance from Rocky I, and a slight remix of Redemption), and a kids version of Gonna Fly Now, plus more. My favorites are "Redemption" and "Overture". Believe me, if you get this CD, you will not regret spending that money at all. All of the Rocky soundtracks are terrific!

28 years ago?? I was around 10 years old when Rocky II came out! Whew..has it been that long? Regardess, I still remember clearly being at the theater - and being hyped up to see Rocky II. It was, if I am not mistaken, a feature review in my "Dy-no-Myte" magazine we used to get at school. (East Coasters may remember that mag).

I was fortunate to see the first "Rocky" on my best friends Top Loader VCR just prior...(that and Star Wars were my first 2 experiences with the now infamous bootleg copy!). But I was 10 - did I care?

Not only do I remember being as emotional as a 10 year old could be that Adrianne not only survived the childbirth, Rock had a kid, and of course being pumped during the workout and the fact he caught the chicken! (that "Kentucky Fried Idiot").

But what I also remember was getting the music from those key scenes stuck in my head as well...the music became just as important to me that year.

Of course the training music everyone knows, but I remembered the music during the final fight, the piano solo as Rock sits and waits out Addriane's coma, the 2 acapella songs the quartet is singing around the fire. It all stuck...and I remember getting the soundtrack to that (and Star Wars!) on that birthday that year and it was all on there.

As the hype machine started rolling months ago on Rocky Balboa was everywhere...something triggered me to find the soundtrack on cd. Went to a handful of stores and no luck..until I hit Amazon.

And I have to say it all holds up (except one track - which wasn't actaully in the movie). All the music triggers all the memories and it is amazing how after all this time it still sounds great.
