ALBUM AVAILABILITY
The original Warner Brothers release from 1987, which can still be readily found on the secondary market, removed two tracks from the LP's presentation (including "Growing Up" and "Lex Luthor's Lair") to fit the score on a single CD. While the album did include the voice-overs at the end of the flying sequence, the original LP remained the most complete source of music from the Williams' score in the United States. A Japanese Warner Brothers CD release in 1990 (with nearly identical cover art) managed to squeeze the two missing tracks onto the CD, encompassing all music available on the LP and cassette releases to that date. That Japanese album is out of print and difficult to find.

The 1998 Varèse Sarabande 2-CD re-recordings and 2000 Rhino 2-CD complete release are both regular commercial albums, but the latter is out of print. The 2008 Film Score Monthly 8-CD set was made available through soundtrack specialty outlets for $120. Its first edition of 3,000 copies quickly sold out, but a second edition of another 3,000 copies kept the product available well into 2009.
