I do so love Trevor Jones’ score for this film, but have never been able to find a copy of it. Does such a thing even exist or have I been searching in vain?

You can find it on Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk and also eBay.

If you can find it, I’d recommend getting the two disc version with the black cover with a Skeksis pictured (the single disc version has a blue cover with two urRu in silhouette). The black cover version has both the compilation soundtrack and the film score soundtrack. But either edition is good.

But if you can’t wait, here’s a video of Trever Jones conducting the music live. grin

You might also be able to listen to it on Pandora or Spotify or something if you want to hear it while you’re writing. (I agree with urSandwich though—definitely get the two-disc version if you can.)

I went on one of the popular search engines and put in the search bar:


“the dark crystal” +  soundtrack


and came up with 89,500 results.  Be sure to use the quote marks, and the “+” sign so the search engine will look for that specific word string (The Dark Crystal)  plus the word string “soundtrack”.

The Overture is on iTunes but that’s all they have.
