The Music of Tour Of Duty
The original soundtrack to the show was never released and what has been released around the world is a mixture of songs from the show and songs from the era , here you can find out about the various releases.
Around the world there have been different releases of Tour Of Duty LP's , CD's and 7inch singles.
The following section shows some that I have been able to track down.
Rather than being original 'soundtracks' from the show they are collections of songs from the time/era depicted in the show, released under the banner of Tour Of Duty.
You can also find some tracks from the original series on the CD's/LP's & cassettes mixed in with other classic tracks.

More and more people today access music from their
desktop computers or
Streaming services have taken over the music business so people can access their music on a variety of devices.
Collectors may still prefer owning LPs or CDs, but they probably have some music stored digitally on their computer hard drives.
