Are you talking about Jeff Wayne's War of the Worlds, which was out in the 70s? I think Richard Burton was the narrator

Back in the late eighties Ben Liebrand Remixed this and brought it right up to date (for then) nad reached no. 3 in the UK.

I've got the CD single - sounds a bit dated now..!

it is a great album, I too have it on vinyl and cd nad it has been in the car stereo constantly for the last fortnight.!
Being a bit niggly , it is not a soundtrack, more of a concept album along the lines of the sort of thing Rick Wakeman used to produce.
I was very dissapointed with the booklet with the cd version. In the vinyl version it contained a narrative whereas the cd version just has the lyrics. Have to say I prefered the older version.
