Editorial Reviews

In the wake of Indy's reemergence, here comes a limited-edition set of all four Indiana Jones soundtracks, together for the first time with unreleased music plus audio interviews with John Williams, Steven Spielberg and George Lucas! Almost as suave as Harrison Ford is the embossed leatherette slipcase; the 32-page booklet boasts storyboards and behind-the-scenes photos. Most of this has been out of print since '95: The Idol Temple; The Miracle of the Ark; Bad Dates; Marion's Theme; The Snake Pit; Water!; Raiders March , and more of the most rousing movie music ever!

4.0 out of 5 stars Raiders of the Lost Soundtracks November 16, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
For nearly 3 decades man has been searching for the lost Indiana Jones soundtracks. Fortune & Glory, it seems, is just beyond our grasp. Yes, they are incomplete and are missing several prominent cues that were omitted for time in order to release single-disc expanded albums. Still, there's enough missing material to keep even the most persistent Arkeologist from obtaining the one, true, Arkival edition of these classic scores and enough to warrant another major release at some point in the future. I'm still giving this set 4 stars because the remastered audio quality is phenomenal and a huge improvement with greater dynamic range, sub and mid-range clarity than on the 1995 DCC release of Raiders Of The Lost Ark (1981 Film) and the Polydor release of Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom: The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack and the unforgiveably abridged Warner Bros. Records release of Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack as well as the expanded bootlegs ripped from the DVD Dolby rear channel mix with ambient sound effects I've had to endure for nearly a decade.

So just what's missing?

3.0 out of 5 stars For completists, not quite complete November 15, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The collaboration between Steven Spielberg and John Williams has been among the most fruitful of any director/composer pairing in movie history, and it's no slight against Spielberg or his actors to say that the soul and to some extent smarts in the Indiana Jones tril-- excuse me, tetralogy is the music. These scores have been shortchanged on record over the years, so to get this 5-CD boxed set with expanded editions of the "Raiders," "Temple of Doom" and "Last Crusade" soundtracks is a treat. However, a word that rhymes with treat also comes to mind, and Williams fans should be excused for feeling a little cheated. This box gives us more of the music, but not all of it, and cues are arbitrarily truncated or presented as disconnected fragments instead of segueing into one another as in the movies. The music for the truck chase in "Raiders" was presented complete on the DCC issue some years ago, but for some reason it's subjected to several needless cuts here. The equivalent set piece in "Last Crusade"--the tank sequence--is presented so that the music from the middle of the scene comes before the beginning and end of the scene. Would it have been too much trouble to string it together to follow in sequence?

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?

3.0 out of 5 stars Great set, not complete, but still worth it. November 22, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Ok, here is what I thought of it after a thorough listen.

It's a great collection considering the last time I had these they were on cassette tape.

Sound quality..
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.

Music..
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.

'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
