The German Bill Bailey lookalike and keyboard whizz Harold Faltermeyer had a worldwide hit with this in 1984 and it was the theme tune of the film, Beverly Hills Cop with Eddie Murphy. Here with the hard to find “London Mix” plus the “Extended Version” and B-side “Shoot Out” (a bit Herbie Hancock) Apparently (for the anoraks out there!) the five main instruments used to create Axel F were a Roland Jupiter-8, Moog Modular Synthesiser 15, Roland JX-P, Yamaha DX7 and a LinnDrum. No Frogs were harmed in the making of this record!
