I see that Raiders and Temple of Doom soundtracks are selling on eBay and Amazon.com for very high prices. I own all three soundtracks and they're in mint condition. In fact Last Crusade is still sealed. A friend of mine wanted to buy the Raiders soundtrack from me but I declined his rather generous offer. I suppose I'll regret that if they ever release the complete expanded soundtracks to coincide with Indy 4. Do you think it's best to hold onto the soundtracks or sell them now and make a nice profit?
That’s hard to say. I know they are selling for a lot, but I am hopeful for a re-release of the soundtracks, like with Star wars. It is possible after Indy 4 comes out, and the Young Indy show, maybe they will re-release the trilogy, and soundtracks... but that’s probably asking for a lot!
I would say keep a watch out on Amazon for an upcoming release, and if you see one before they release it, you could still get a pretty penny for them. But I would love to have original pieces of Indy merchandise form when it was released, no matter the profit involved.
You can get some much better deals on iTunes if you're looking for the Best of John Williams or the Best of the Indiana Jones Trilogy stuff (I don't think they've got the original soundtracks for each film though).
I have the original album from cbs records.I bought it from k-mart for $5.97 and still have it all these years.When i lived in long island me and my very good friend kenny would go every saturday to see raiders in the local theater which was only $1.25 for a mat show,we went to the local mall bought it together and listened to it a couple of times but i still have it and treasure it.
I was gonna use the Raiders soundtrack for my fan film, but Lucasfilm has stated you cannot use the copyrighted soundtrack even in a fan film. Your film is ineligible to be in the atomfilms competition if you violate copyright although they do authorize and provide some sound fx.
The Jawa Trader in Star Wars Insider were offering all three sound track eight or nine years ago. I'm kicking myself for not ordering them when I had the chance. Hopefully they'll be re-release as 2-Disc sets like the Star Wars soundtracks.
