One of the best classical CDs I have heard to this day. When I first got this, I listen to it more than once a day. John Williams is the George Lucas of the music industry, and that’s why I consider him my favorite composer of old and new. These double disc CD features all of John’s greatest hits of the past 30 years and half these movies are my favorite of all time. Obviously the best songs on here are “Star Wars Main Title” “The Raider’s March” from Raiders of the Lost Ark,” the “Main Title” of Superman, “Jurassic Park Theme,” and “Imperial March,” from Empire Strikes Back. That’s not even half of the songs that I like on these Cds. I never really paid attention to some of these songs on here until I heard this and loved them. Those tracks would be ‘Flight to Neverland”(Gives me goosebumpshaha shut up!) from Hook, “Parade of the Slave Children,” from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, “Motorcycle and Orchestra” from “Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade” and “E.T. Flying theme” from of course, E.T. The best song that great John Williams has composed would have to be Phantom Menace’s “Duel of The Fates.” I get goose bumps every time I hear that song and anyone who is into Star Wars as I am would know the feeling. All these tracks are spectacular and if you like movie scores or soundtracks these are definitely the CDs to get!!! x
