News from Perseverance Records

Original Soundtrack
Music & Songs by Paul Hertzog
Featuring Songs Performed by Stan Bush and Michael Bishop

Perseverance Records is proud to release the soundtrack to the 1988 Jean-Claude Van Damme cult classic, Bloodsport. Starting with his debut in the 1986 cheapie, No Retreat, No Surrender, Jean-Claude Van Damme was well on his way to becoming the biggest action star of the 80s and 90s. When Bloodsport came out in 1988, his credentials as a kickboxing champion made for solid box office. The movie went on to gross over 11 million at the box office (the movie cost just under 2 million) and that is great for a small independent like Cannon. Bloodsport also starred Donald Gibb (Revenge Of The Nerds) and Forest Whitaker (yep, the same guy who just won a Best Actor Oscar).
Bloodsport was composer Paul Hertzog’s first action movie scoring assignment and second film overall (with the comedy My Chauffeur being his first). On this movie he showed he not only could compose a great action score but write pop songs, as well. Paul wrote the songs “Fight To Survive” and “On My Own – Alone” sung by AOR artist, Stan Bush. These songs were not included on the original Silva or Edel issues of the soundtrack, and neither was the Michael Bishop-written and -perfromed cult classic "Steal the Night". Due to popular demand, we were able to locate the songs and make sure that fans of the movie could own them.
This CD is limited to 3,000 units. We anticipate this great release will sell out quickly, so buy yours now. You can order your copy at <>.
