Original Soundtracks

Four volumes of the original soundtrack (OST) were released in North America and Europe on CD and cassette by Varèse Sarabande in the early 1990s. Each album contains a mix of tracks from several episodes.

Availability

These are out of print in North America, but some have been recently (circa 2011) re-released in Europe by Colosseum (Varèse's manufacturer in Europe) - Vol 1, Vol 2, Vol 3. Additionally, Amazon in the UK and Germany have press-on-demand CDs, as discussed on a Film Score Monthly Board thread

As recently as October 2015, Roger Feigelson from Intrada Records  (which partners with Disney on frequent score releases) expressed his interest in releasing a complete set of the Young Indiana Jones Chronicles scores. Express your support by contacting  Intrada.
