Local Hero (Original Soundtrack)

Hard to find LP from the Dire Straits man! Pristine vinyl, very nice clean cover and inner sleeve.

ocal Hero is the debut soundtrack album by British singer-songwriter and guitarist Mark Knopfler, released in April 1983[1] by Vertigo Records internationally and by Warner Bros. Records in the United States. It contains music composed for the 1983 film Local Hero, produced by David Puttnam and both written and directed by Bill Forsyth.[2]

In 1984, the album received a BAFTA award nomination for Best Score for a Film.[3] The final track of the album, "Going Home", is played before every home game of Newcastle United F.C.[4] Knopfler re-recorded the song as a charity single for the 2014 Great North Run in his home city.[5]
