Is there a complete version out? I dont think the 2 disc rhino is complete. Somewhere i heard there was some pop songs johnny wrote for some of the high school scenes and stuff, though it's not in my DVD. Anyone have any idea why that is the case? i dont mean can u read my mind, btw.

also, did anyone make a complete version?

Williams did write some source music that wound up in the TV version and is not on the out of print Rhino album. It has nothing to do with the score proper, which is heard in it's entirety on that 2 disc set.

Perhaps because it's the one piece of Williams-written source music that was actually used in the original theatrical version. His other source music was either dropped or replaced with existing pop songs.

Luthor's Luau was the only piece of source music to exist in a complete form at the point in time.

(I think. Please correct me if I'm wrong Neil).

Yes i think mattesino mentions (either in the liner notes or in the interview in a superman page) something about not being able to find those source cues.

Don't laugh, but there is literally one note missing from the Rhino 2-CD. It is the cue which in the written score is called "The Burglar Sequence", it immediately follows the Helicopter Rescue.

The cue beings with a two-bar "D" in the cellos and is follows by low woodwind. For some reason the Rhino CD doesn't feature that "D" in the celli, but can be heard in the film.

The Rhino CD track begins with just the woodwind part (one can faintly hear the celli "D" from the previous bars but it has decrescendoed at this point).

In my previous post I referred to underscore. There were some unreleased bits of source music, but all the underscore is on the Rhino set (except for the one note I mentioned above).

It's heard as it was intended on the Rhino album. It was written as an overlap even though the movie didn't use it that way.
