Produced by Laurent Bouzereau, the reissued CDâ€™s expand the first three iconic Indiana Jones soundtrack albums, which have been collectorsâ€™ items for many years.
Concord Records also released the soundtrack to last yearâ€™s mega-blockbuster Indiana Jones & The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (which was recently nominated for a 2009 GrammyÂ® Award for Best Score Soundtrack Album For Motion Picture, Television Or Other Visual Media).
With 45 Academy Award nominations and five OscarsÂ® under his belt, John Williams has composed many of the most famous film scores in history, and has collaborated with Steven Spielberg for the past 35 years on 23 films including Jaws, E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial and Schindlerâ€™s List.
