AllMusic Review by

The double-disc version of the Superman soundtrack features John Williams' entire score for the 1978 film, collecting over two and a half hours of music, including 40 minutes which were omitted from the score's original release. Along with well-known pieces like "Prelude and Main Title March," "The March of the Villains," "The Flying Sequence," and "Love Theme From Superman," this deluxe set includes alternate takes of "The Planet Krypton" and "Can You Read My Mind," a concert version of "Theme From Supeman," and the previously unreleased composition "Luthor's Luau." This extensive reissue of one of Williams' most distinctive works is very worthwhile for fans of the composer or the film.
