The fifth installment of Indiana Jones won’t hit theaters until 2019 when Harrison Ford will be pushing 80 (actually 77 for those keeping score at home), but until then fans will have something to keep them happy.
Concord Music Group has announced the vinyl re-issue of John Williams‘ classic Oscar-nominated score for the legendary Indiana Jones film, Raiders of the Lost Ark. Due out June 2nd, the two-LP album will be available on 180-gram vinyl pressed at RTI (Record Technology Incorporated), and packaged in a two-pocket gatefold jacket featuring original stills and artwork from the iconic action-adventure film.
Composed by the legendary John Williams, and nominated for both an Academy Award and GRAMMY Award, Raiders of the Lost Ark was the only score in Stephen Spielberg’s beloved series performed by the renowned London Symphony Orchestra.
The soundtrack is most notable for the instantly recognizable “Raiders March,” which came to symbolize Indiana Jones and will feature a wealth of cues not previously available on the original soundtrack LP, which was originally cut by renowned engineer Bernie Grundman, who mastered the score for its initial release in 1981.
You can preorder this special vinyl edition of Raiders of the Lost Ark on Amazon.
