Indy gets a release date at last:

Quote
It is one of the most anticipated film scores of the year and next month all will finally be revealed as John Williams’ Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is released on CD on May 20th, just a couple of days before the film hits screens worldwide. The score of course marks the legendary composer’s fourth adventure with Spielberg, Lucas and Henry Jones Jr. and fans can hardly wait to hear what Williams has come up with. The score will be made available by Concord Records, a jazz, blues and classical label which previously released Gustavo Santaolalla’s Babel. No tracklisting or artwork has been revealed as yet, but the release date is tantalisingly close. Early reports suggest Williams has stuck closely to the style of the original scores, which Concord are apparently due to re-release separately at a later date. The score is also the first to feature the brand new hi-tech keyboard instrument, the ‘Continuum Fingerboard’, a keyboard that pre-empts where the performers fingers will go using complex sensors. Although the device provided ambient sound for the likes of Superman Returns and Williams’ War of the Worlds, Crystal Skull marks the first time it has been used as an instrument.

All will of course become clear on May 20th as the score hits stores; the usual online retailers are already providing pre-order services, but there’s sure to be plenty to go around!

This link says that the other soundtracks will be re-released at a later date, which, if they're expanded versions, would be really swell.

Yeah, I know.  Nothing that bad.  Just wanted to cover my ass from the hyper-sensitive spoiler babies.

Your label of me as a "homophobe" is inaccurate.  The term is completely wrong.  Phobia is a fear, but people who believe homosexuality is a sin are not "afraid" of gay people or even of homosexuality itself.  We disapprove of the act but we're not afraid of it.

I thought that was a track from the Attack of the Clones soundtrack.

A common mistake. It was written and recorded by Johnny Williams for TPM, but Ben Burtt decided to cut it out so that it didn't overlap with his cool Fambaa fart sounds, then dropped it into AOTC at a complelely inappropriate moment.

19 tracks? Damn, this'll be one long CD if it's anything like the SW soundtracks.

I like the title "Ants!" for some reason.
