After watching Hoosiers on DVD a while ago, I was wondering if a copy of the soundtrack was available. Lo and behold, here it is! I think the Soundtrack to Hoosiers is one of the best, if not the best, that Jerry Goldsmith has ever done. All of the tracks are excellent, particularly the first and last. The way he repeats the same musical theme in all the tracks, yet keep them all interesting, is pure genius.

If there's one word to describe the Hoosiers soundtrack, it's this: uplifting. This music uplifts one as much as the movie does, and can be listened to over and over again. 5 out of 5. By the way, this soundtrack is now available on iTunes for $9.99.

It's no secret that Jerry Goldsmith's prodigious output in the 1980's was marred by slightly below par performances by the HSO Orchestra.

However, Best Shot is one example where the sheer quality of the composition shines through despite lackluster playing. This is Goldsmith at his best - memorable and spirited thematic material that never fails to capture the imagination. Bravo Jerry!!!

Great music, and after seeing the movie "Hoosiers" I can conjure up in my mind the scene in the movie pertaining to the music. I am not a basketball fan at all, (being a fellow Hoosier that is hard to believe) but I did like the movie and kept promising to get myself the musical score and now that I have it I play it in my car and anyone else who rides with me instantly says " That's from Hoosiers".
You won't be disappointed in this CD, and I play it in my car to kind of lift up my spirits on these cold, dreary fall days.

HOOSIERS is one of my all-time favorite movies. It's hard to describe, but this film is what America is all about. Great performances, photography and a brilliantly emotionally charged score composed by Jerry Goldsmith contribute to the success of this film. One critic called it `a-stand-up-and-cheer-movie' and that is exactly what it is. When the opening credits played I just knew this was going to be a great film. Jerry Goldsmith's music behind the credits showing Gene Hackman traveling across the back roads of mid America is pure Americana. And the final shot of the team photograph on the wall of the empty and silent gymnasium with Hackman's echoing words put a lump in my throat and a tear in my eye. I suppose there is something endearing to me about our land and the chance for the seemingly unimportant individual to stand together with others against insurmountable odds and accomplish a noble feat or aspiration in one fleeting moment of glory. That is the greatness to be found in the collective spirit of our nation.

Jerry Goldsmith's score for HOOSIERS captures this endearing spirit perhaps greater than any of his of his other scores. It is both timely and traditional in scope. It captures both the intellectual and the emotional ear of the listener and combines the two creating a rousing and inspirational drive of the heart and soul.

Whenever you feel down and out try playing this soundtrack. Listen to it and you may come away with a deeply inspirational and motivated spirit enriched of all the potential we are capable of achieve in a celebration of life's greatest gifts.

All I can say is, it's a shame this man passed away. I've got a lot of Goldsmith's work in my music collection and Hoosiers will always be one of my favorites. Plus, I really like how he uses the sound of a bouncing basketball for the beat in some songs.

The music from this movie is easily as inspirational as the movie itself. We love the way it makes one feel alive and ready to go. It is great music, and Amazon gave us great service--two weeks early on delivery from the U.K.

It was worth the hunt to find this movie soundtrack. I enjoy musical renditions then singing sometimes, it helps set the theme of the the movie more.

HOOSIRES is one of Jerry Goldsmith's best scores. I really like it. Outstanding and rousing it is, but why is this so hard to find?
