Superman: The Movie [Original Soundtrack Bonus Tracks]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Andrew Velez
Fans of SUPERMAN and John Williams who have waited a long time -- 22 years! -- for this lavish reissue will not be disappointed. Part of an astounding five-year period of work that also included scores for STAR WARS, RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, and E.T., the SUPERMAN score is classic Williams at his rousing best -- from his instantly recognizable "Prelude and Title March" to the "Love Theme from Superman," sweeping strings soar, brass and percussion explode. More than 40 minutes of previously unreleased music from the diverse score is included on the reissue, including alternate takes on some SUPERMAN favorites.

This double-disc treatment comes in deluxe packaging with a 36-page full-color booklet about the history of "The Man of Steel" and track-by-track annotation of the score by film historian Michael Matessino that will sate even the most ardent Super-fan.
All Music Guide - Heather Phares
The double-disc version of the Superman soundtrack features John Williams' entire score for the 1978 film, collecting over two and a half hours of music, including 40 minutes which were omitted from the score's original release. Along with well-known pieces like "Prelude and Main Title March," "The March of the Villains," "The Flying Sequence," and "Love Theme from Superman," this deluxe set includes alternate takes of "The Planet Krypton" and "Can You Read My Mind," a concert version of "Theme From Superman," and the previously unreleased composition "Luau." This extensive reissue of one of Williams' most distinctive works is very worthwhile for fans of the composer or the film.
