    Finally! Glad to see some fun oldies on this soundtrack. Saw the movie last week, and Wes has still got it.

  2. Al Pettiford says:

    For Gods sake, why aren’t these soundtracks on CD?I have been collecting soundtracks for over 50 years, downloads are not my thing and I believe people that download, don’t care about them for they play music on their smartphones. Where is my Indy!!!!!

  3. Edward says:

    Agreed. I am deeply, deeply disappointed not to be able to buy this on wven CD (though vinyl preferred). Downloads are an absolute last resort for me, and even then I sonwtime don’t bother. Auch a terrible shame, I hope this is not a sign that the money me are slowly winning 8n their war on art. First step is download only, next step is streaming only, only ever owning a right to access what they chose to make available. I replaced my tv viewing with Netflix. I won’t do that with my record collection.
