So just what's missing?Read more ›
Naturally, I'm glad to have the music on CD in any form, but this set feels like a missed opportunity when you consider the deluxe, completist treatment that the "Lord of the Rings" and 1977-83 "Star Wars" trilogies have gotten on disc. And if this sounds like nitpicking from a movie geek--well, what other audience is a 5-CD set of film music supposed to reach?
It's a great collection considering the last time I had these they were on cassette tape.
This top notch on most of the tracks.
There are a few tracks though like on "Temple of Doom" and "Last Crusade" that have a muffled sound to them. They aren't as crisp sounding as others. I guess they got it cleaned up as good as they could.
A fair warning, if you are looking for a complete soundtrack set with these you'll be disappointed.
Another reviewer said that some music is truncated (trimmed down) and missing. He's correct on that. A few tracks in "Raiders of the Lost Ark", "Temple of Doom", and "Last Crusade" have missing or truncated (trimmed down) tracks. They could have used more of the 5th disc to put these on, you'll notice if you flip the disc over there was plenty of space left. They also used "album versions" for some of the songs instead of film versions".
Even though this set isn't complete I still think its worth it because we get a few tracks that has never been released before. It's a joy to me because like I said the last time I had these 3 were on cassette. Also if your an Indian Jones fan you will love this.
Box it came in..
It's nice but its a tight fit. If your worried about tearing or damaging the sleeves I would recommend holding the box at an angle and tapping it on the back to get the individual sleeves out. Otherwise you might run a risk of tearing the edge or top of them trying to get them out.
In all I think Intrada or Film Score Monthly should have handled this production because they seem to always give %100 detail in their box sets. If you want an example their work here's a link to the Superman: The Music (1978-1988) Complete Set. [...]

Great music. Poor CD packaging. Leatherette slipcase have glued label - in my copy glue is only in the center so corners will bend. Inserts do not contain anything interesting.Published 19 months ago by Mateusz

|'Raiders' not QUITE complete!||
You are half right: The "Desert Chase" cue is indeed the short version, but "Basket Game" is the same as the DCC. An early leak of the Concord set had a shorter version of "Basket Game" but for some reason it ended up being the DCC length in the final CD. Too bad... Read More

|When do you think Amazon will ship the Indy Soundtracks?||
The release date is the 11th. That's a postal holiday, so they won't actually start shipping until the 12th. My estimated delivery date via Amazon Prime is the 14th. I never, ever have my movies/music arrive on the release date, always the day after.
However, they typically ship my orders on... Read More
