The only audio release of the Blade Runner sound track I know of is a
"cover" by the New American Orch. (whatever that is) in 1982.  If you
want the real sound track, the best way to get is to spend the bucks
($80 maybe?) and get the laser disk version of the movie.

Then you have to buy, beg, borrow, whatever, a laser disk player, etc.
(There are some new players comming out which play formats including
CDs, CDVs, etc., but they run $1000 to $2000; oh well, someday...)
The next step is to dub the music over to a tape.

The laser disk version of Blade Runner I've seen doesn't fill out TV
screen top to bottom so you get the original aspect ratio of the
movie.  If you have a player with stop action, you can take a good
look at all the effects, etc.  There's some pretty interesting stuff
in that movie.
