The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles (1992)
Stars - Sean Patrick Flanery
Composers - Laurence Rosenthal, Joel McNeely
Directors - Various
George Lucas' notion of exploring the Indiana Jones character's early days has resulted in an entertaining series of made-for-television films that use high budgets and varied locations to great effect. The overall excellent production values extend to the music where two composers are employed who alternate stories. Rosenthal and McNeely have fashioned larger-than-life scores for each episode and this is reflected in Rosenthal's exuberant theme for the overall series. (Liner notes by Ian Stuart)
The 2-CD set Best of the West (released in Germany) contains a re-recording of a track from Rosenthal's Mexico 1916 score (Pancho Villa's camp). It can be found on iTunes Music Service or Amazon.com for individual purchase. [Soundtrack Collector]15. Die Abenteuer Des Jungen Indianer Jones (The Adventure of Young Indiana Jones) (3:25) [Disc 1]

There's many many many ways / To get with the cool Young Indy craze
He's in a world of his own / No-one can hang with Indiana Jones
