Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade soundtrack

The Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade soundtrack was originally released on LP, cassette and CD by Warner Brothers Records in 1989. The music was composed and conducted by John Williams, and performed by the uncredited Hollywood Studio Symphony Orchestra.

The album cover utilizes Drew Struzan's artwork for the movie's release one-sheet. As he does with most of his films' soundtrack albums, director Steven Spielberg contributes brief liner notes expressing his appreciation for Williams' score.

Tracks do not appear in the order that they occur in the film, but instead in a succession chosen by Williams for listening purposes. Listeners interested in hearing the selections in score order may program the album thus: 1, 2, 4, 5, 3, 6, 9, 10, 11, 12, 7, 13.

Track 8, "Keeping up With The Joneses" does not appear in the film in the form present here, but two segments from this cue do appear in the movie. First, after the book-burning scene, at the airport, we see Henry Jones reading a newspaper that is concealing his face. The music that is playing at the time is the Keeping up With The Jones' theme, which is played rather softly o­n the woodwinds. Later, at the beach scene, we see the Jones' running down to the beach. We hear a very short sequence that occurs o­n the track right before the music in the airport does.
