John Williams did his best job ever here ! It all starts with a fantastic piece
of opening music on the main titles: big orchestra, big horns, big chills
! But also when the music is very silent, like when they plant the bombs,
it's so riveting. The score was only available on lp and later on a bootleg-cd.
But finally FilmScoreMonthly did a great job by making a cd with almost
ALL of the music. Bad news: it's one of the very few cd's of FSM that
are sold-out ! If you have it: cherish it. For those who haven't got it,
the good news is: Jason is back !
Thanks to Jason Williams you can listen to all the music from the
original motion picture soundtrack ! He has it all in streaming audio
! So go now to Jason
Williams' TTI-Score page. Thanks a lot Jason, great job !
