Soundtracks for All Four Indiana Jones Movies Being Released This Fall

Posted on Thursday, September 18th, 2008 12:00 PM by Scott Jentsch

Reader Ron H. sent us a note about the fact that the soundtracks for all four Indiana Jones movies are being re-released in conjunction with the home video release of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

The record label issued a very brief statement about the release:

For the first time ever all four Indiana Jones soundtrack albums are available in this limited edition collectible CD boxed set! Included are expanded and remastered versions of Raiders of the Lost Ark, and exclusive to this set: Indiana Jones & The Temple Doom, and Indiana Jones & The Last Crusade.

This set also includes the Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull soundtrack plus a bonus interview CD with composer John Williams on the making of this historic music. Housed in a handsome embossed slip case and presented with a full color booklet, this set reintroduces the iconic original Indiana Jones film scores by Oscar-winning composer John Williams - out of print since 1995!

A must for fans and collectors alike, all will rejoice in having all these soundtracks presented together expanded with previously unreleased music - along with this summer's blockbuster Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull available together for the very first time. Relive the musical adventure today!

The soundtracks for the first three movies have been very hard to come by since they were discontinued in the 90's and John Williams fans are definitely getting excited about having new music as well as the new masters! I have the CD for Raiders of the Lost Ark (and it's great!), but I never picked up the others, so this will be my chance.

The box set will be released on November 11, 2008 and Amazon has a details page for it, with a pre-order price of $53.99.

The expanded version of Raiders of the Lost Ark will also be released separately on CD October 14th. The cover art for that disc appears to the left.

The track listing is as follows:

01. In the Jungle
02. The Idol Temple
03. Escape from the Temple
04. Flight from Peru
05. Washington Men/Indy's Home*
06. A Thought for Marion/To Nepal
07. The Medallion
08. Flight to Cairo
09. The Basket Game
10. Bad Dates*
11. The Map Room/Dawn
12. Reunion in the Tent/Searching for the Well
13. The Well of the Souls
14. Indy Rides the Statue*
15. The Fist Fight/The Flying Wing
16. Desert Chase
17. Marion's Theme/The Crate
18. The German Sub
19. Ride to the Nazi Hideout
20. Indy Follows the Ark
21. The Miracle of the Ark
22. Washington Ending & Raiders March

* Previously Unreleased Tracks

This is an expanded and remastered edition of the acclaimed Grammy® Award winning soundtrack album by Oscar®-winning composer John Williams, performed by The London Symphony Orchestra.

The booklet reportedly includes rare photographs, original album artwork, and liner notes that include a note from Steven Spielberg.

There's not any word of the other movies becoming available outside of the box set, but that may depend on how well the box set sells.

I have contacted Concord Music Group about the possibility of getting these soundtracks on higher-quality media than standard Audio CD (like say, lossless audio on a Blu-ray disc), but given the lack of publicity about anything, it's doubtful that they will produce something on par with the excellent "Complete Recordings" series done for the Lord of the Rings movies.
