About the albumEdit

This is an album by The Vienna Symphonic Orchestra, an orchestra that founded in 1900 and later consolidated in 1921 from the ranks of another Viennese orchestra.

Many of the tracks were recorded at the Vienna Studios. Other recordings and record production was completed at the Power Sound Studio in Achau, Austria, between April-May 1986.

The album includes symphonic rock versions of Duran Duran's Bond-movie theme "A View To A Kill", plus Frankie Goes To Hollywood's 1985 UK no.2 hit single "Welcome To The Pleasuredome".
