Superman: The Movie [Original Soundtrack Bonus Tracks]
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.
