Format: Audio CD
In the late 1970s, John Williams suddenly upped his game and started composing a series of film scores that are at least as good as any composed before or since. The most impressive I feel are "Star Wars", "Superman", "Raiders of the Lost Ark" and "ET". And for its ability to stand as a solid piece of music away from the screen, I'm inclined to think that "Superman" is the very finest of them all.

Most people know the main Superman theme to some degree, but hearing it on this CD makes one appreciate what a thrilling orchestral march it actually is. The Love Theme is also very impressive, easily matching the passion that Bernard Hermann brought to the "Scene D'Amour" in his soundtrack for "Vertigo".

I have always been haunted by the noble brass theme representing the planet Krypton, which I suspect Williams modelled on Richard Wagner's theme for Valhalla in "The Ring". For me, however, the most impressive track is "The Fortress of Solitude". Shot through with references to the Krypton theme and using such instruments as harp, celesta and wordless female chorus, the music conveys an astonishing sense of mystery, radiance and ecstasy. It is by far and away the best piece of music by a film composer that I have ever heard.

The original LP contained two tracks which have been omitted from this CD release, namely "Growing Up" and "Lex Luthor's Lair". "Growing Up" is an excellent piece and it is a pity that it was not included. It can be found on the extended, two disc edition of the soundtrack. However, that release uses a different and much inferior take of "The Fortress of Solitude". As a result, there is a strong argument for owning this single disc edition of the "Superman" soundtrack. Buy it while you can.

Until I purchased the Complete Score of Superman, this older release was my favourite CD. Even without the complete score on offer, it is still an outstanding purchase. It has made the most of a 1-CD condensed running time and is smartly arranged to give you a satisfactory listening experience. The sound quality breaks just a little at times but even so, it's still more than acceptable. At under £10, this CD is a bargain.

I bought this for my 4 year old Superman mad grandson , who loved it, & I hadn't realised what great music it was. Highly recommended.
