Temple of Doom soundtrack

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom soundtrack

The Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom soundtrack was first released on LP, cassette and CD in 1984 by Polydor Records. As with all the films' scores and soundtracks, the music is composed (except for "Anything Goes") and conducted by John Williams. The inclusion of Cole Porter's "Anything Goes" (heard here in Mandarin, as in the film, performed by Kate Capshaw as Willie Scott) gives this album the distinction of being the only soundtrack album for an Indiana Jones movie to include music not written by Williams.

The cover utilizes the Bruce Wolfe artwork for the movie's Style A release poster, and as with most of his films' soundtrack albums, director Steven Spielberg contributes brief liner notes expressing his appreciation for Williams' score.

The original album went out of print in the US in the early 1990s, but remained in print in Japan for several years. Consequently, an unusually large number of the copies of the original album in circulation on the collector market are of the Japanese release.

Due to the length limitations of a single LP (approximately 40 minutes), numerous cues from the film were cut. An unofficial remixed album was released with the original eleven tracks and remixed tracks.
