Performer Notes
  • Original score composed by John Williams.
  • Recorded at Anvil Studios, Denham, England in July 1978. Includes liner notes by Christopher Reeve, Iiya Salkind and Michael Matessino.
  • Digitally remastered by Dan Hersch (Digiprep).
  • John Williams was the man of the moment in soundtrack music from 1977 onward, and Superman: The Movie was very much the culmination of his first wave of international renown. Casting aside his over-reliance on the works of Holst, Ravel, and Korngold, he delivered up a score that still -- 30-plus years later -- is lively, playful, mysterious, and, most of all, stylistically original and filled with unexpected touches that still surprise when heard as pure music. Williams and the London Symphony Orchestra by this time played like he was joined telepathically to the musicians, and also recognized just how closely and widely their work would be heard in the wake of the huge sales on the soundtracks from Star Wars and Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Thus, the playing here is impeccable, from the finely nuanced, brooding passages depicting the planet Krypton to the heroic theme associated with the title character. And they are a delight to hear, though much more so in the remastered and expanded double-CD edition from Rhino/Warner Archive, which improves the sound dramatically. There's still a lot that one will recognize from established composers, and that Williams even "steals" from himself, but he's got it all finely developed here in a more mature style that makes it worthwhile hearing more than once. ~ Bruce Eder

The definitive (2cd) remastered score from the first Superman movie. So happy with the quality and packaging of this product, extensive liner notes and the many versions of favourite tracks. For fans of Superman, John Williams or anyone who appreciates phenomenal film scores. One of John Williams' best.

This is the best version of John Williams superb soundtrack.

Rhino Records (owned by Warner Bros) has gone back to the archives to source previously unpublished tracks. For example, Death of Johnathan Kent, a particularly beautiful passage of music.

I have always loved the first nine tracks (up to Fortress of Solitude) - Williams at his best.

Apart from the Star Wars soundtracks, this is John Williams best - ever!!
