Long overdue first U.S. CD release of brilliant, exuberant John Williams soundtrack from Harry Winer young astronaut tale with Kate Capshaw, Lea Thompson, Kelly Preston, (very young) Joaquin Phoenix.

Highlights are many: rich, expressive opening theme, rousing action sequences during space flight, powerhouse fortissimo finish to "Home Again", others. Special spotlight goes to "SpaceCamp" cue, heard in film as the end credits: here composer launches brilliant orchestral display with fanfares, rhythms, resounding statement of main theme - all in single cue that clearly inspired future fanfares for Olympics, various Americana events.

Descriptive notes by Michael Matessino plus original LP cover art complete the package. John Williams conducts. Intrada Special Collection release limited to 3000 copies! SOLD OUT!
