Received my order today. What an absolute embarrassment of riches. Lovely new liner notes, and the score has never sounded better.

Received SPACECAMP along with the reissued LAST STARFIGHTER and I'm in heaven. Just trying to remember an era when big, gorgeous thematic scores like this appeared on a regular basis. Those were the days.

Received my SPACECAMP CD today. Totally glorious music from the greatest composer of the last 50 years. It will be played over and over again. My kind of music and I am sure most of you feel the same way. Enjoy !

Wow, the low end in the film tracks is really punchy! A really great recording beautifully mastered.

I noticed that too -- a really nice improvement.

Ok, I'm gonna just admit it - this sounds to me like John Williams' lost Star Trek score!

Almost like Dennis McCarthy, Ron Jones et al. were given this as a temp track for the first couple seasons of Next Generation.

Ok, not really - but it really does give me that hopeful, sense-of-wonder vibe that the best Star Trek music does (though maybe not as much in TOS, since the focus there was more often on the dramatic).

Anyway, this is great for me - my one dream would have been for Williams to do music for Star Trek, and this is it for me!

Enjoying the expansion a lot - again, may just be where I am these days, but I need this kind of music.

Haven't played this yet, but I love the alt/flipper cover on offer.
After years of living with the LP and Japanese CD cover, this new one is the only way to go for me.

I was secretly hoping that this release would include John's son Joseph Williams' contributions to the film soundtrack, in the form of three songs. Have John Williams' soundtrack releases ever included songs? or at least recently (in terms of releases)? was there ever a chance that they could have included those songs, similar to how the Superman scores had the songs included? (I'm as big a Joseph Williams fan as I am John Williams, so its more than just a family thing for me).

Here's the IMDB link to the names of the songs included in the film.
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0091993/soundtrack

Here are those songs:

American Girl

In their recent approach to expansions- it seems Williams isnt keen on having the source cues included in the main program. Joseph's own work on AI was relegated to Disc 3 and in SUPERMAN- the source cues ended up instead on the SUPERMAN II/III set instead. Ofcourse, there are rights issues as well which probably didnt work out or lack of interest from the producers label but I tend to think its the former.

Indeed. Also Far And Away and Empire of the Sun, Home Alone (1 &2), Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Hook, The Towering Inferno all contained (various types of) songs.

The expanded and remastered SPACE CAMP finally arrived in my mailbox today - and it is just stunning. Sheer pleasure.

Wonderful, wonderful job, Intrada! Thank you for this so much.

Wow. Loving this edition. I never really appreciated how good this music really is. Glad I got this.

Has anyone done an A-B comparison of the album mix versus the film mix? I'm very curious to hear thoughts and preferences on that specifically.

I've always loved this score and will always treasure the exhilaration of experiencing this (let's be honest, rather mediocre) movie in 1986 on the then huge screen of the Odeon Marble Arch, London (sadly no more). I think I was one of perhaps two or three other audience members at a weekday matinee showing, and already a teenage Williams fanatic. The score in the film really pushed this film into the realms of wonder and excitement, and I shall never forget the stunning end credits with the huge curtains of this theatre swishing closed at the triumphant finale, with that little coda bringing things to a serene close. This will be my fourth purchase of the score (the original Arista LP, the Japanese SLC CD, the first Intrada CD of the album, and now this definitive edition) and I am only too happy to do so. Superlative Williams coming at the end of that wondrous, punchy, fantasy/blockbuster run of his (mid-70s to mid-80s). To me, he never seemed quite the same after this score, brilliant as the following year's scores were (Empire of the Sun, Witches of Eastwick and on)

very strange, as i can't remember that the latest intrada releases did not have this feature frown
