In case you missed it, last year celebrated the 35th birthday of Raiders of the Lost Ark, the world’s action-packed and iconic first taste of the Indiana Jones franchise.
Directed by Stephen Spielberg, starring Harrison Ford as Indie and featuring an unforgettable score by the one and only John Williams. Now, that soundtrack is being prepped for a vinyl reissue thanks to Concord Music Group.
Bring back the adventurous nostalgia of Indiana Jones in one big sound wave, as Raiders of the Lost Ark gets confirmed for a vinyl reissue.
Pressed on 180-gram vinyl, the double-LP will come housed in a gatefold jacket with original stills and artwork from the movie. It will also feature over 30 minutes of extended cues that were previously only available on the 2008 CD extended edition.
The Oscar-nominated score was the only one in the Indiana Jones series to feature a performance by the London Symphony Orchestra. For this latest re-release, the audio was put together by engineer Bernie Grundman, the same man who mastered the soundtrack for its initial release back in 1981.
