I got the US tin box which I took you got with saying it was DTS. The first one was a great film it was one of the top film of the year when it came out. Totally agree with you on the score nice on by Jerry Goldsmith, will have to get it one day.
Yes I got it just before Christmas. What a great soundtrack, a lot of soundtracks are boring apart from the title and end track but this ones good al the way though. Also the disc I got has 9 bonus tracks on and the first one if from the very opening scene to the start of the main titles 6.21.
Re Rambo Jerry Goldsmith is my all time favourite theme composer.
Years ago I went to the Albert Hall to a annual event called the Filmomonic played by the Philharmonic and the got 4 film composers to conduct there works, got to see some of the greats, Goldsmith and Barry to name a few.
I saw John Williams as well at the Barbican about 5-6 years ago....it was just amazing!
Played all the greats, except Jaws unfortunately. Great anecdote from him about the ending of ET where he was trying to match the music he wrote to the edited pictures at the recording. No matter how he did it he couldn't manage it so in the end Spielberg turned round and basically just said do it how you want to do it and I'll re-edit to match the music!!
He also did an encore with the Raiders' theme to end a perfect night!
