Indiana Jones Raids Your Ears


I was kind of bummed that when Spielberg and Lucas came to New Haven to film parts of the new Indiana Jones movie I was on tour in San Diego (I'm still there). It's still kind of cool to know that when I see the film I'll recognize the places that are just 15 minutes from my house! Anyway, in the great tradition of The Story of Star Wars, The Story of The Empire Strikes Back and The Story of Return of The Jedi, here is "Raiders of the Lost Ark: The Movie on Record". Released by Colombia Records in 1981, this was the best way to bring the film home with you - remember, this was before going to the video store or watching films on-line were even thought of. (not to mention that Spielberg and Lucas once made an announcement that they would never release the film to television, cable or home releases) Out of all of these story records, this one is by far the best. It even won a Grammy for Best Spoken Word Album at the 1982 Grammy Awards. I present it for you now. Here is "Raiders of The Lost Ark: The Movie on Record". Enjoy!

Ever since I purchased the "Thre Story Of Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom (on vinyl, back in 1992 or so) I've been looking for this -either the original vinyl or indeed a ripped digital version- for EVER! Thanks SO much!

Dear Dartman....

This is absolutely fantastic...

Do you maybe know was there ever been released similar LP for "Temple of Doom" and "Last Crusade" and will you upload those in the future too?

I didn't even know that this existed it (altough I knew for Star Wars Trilogy Story Of albums - I have TESB and ROTJ story of too - if you need those let me know and I will upload them for you.

Best Wishes

To the best of my knowledge, there is only the story record to Raiders.
