Not sure why the "Notes" say this is made in Japan. Pic 3 contradicts this. Nothing in Pic 2 that I can see seems to indicate this, although I can't read it well enough to say for sure. Pic 1 does not line up with the edition of this soundtrack that I own ---- it lacks the "Compact Digital Audio Disc" log" on the bottom right hand corner. Crazy thing is, I can't seem to find the one I own on this website. I don't know who uploaded Pic 1 and I don't know if the "Notes" were added when this entry was created or what...you'd think somewhere on the Discogs' database, the one I own, which was pretty commonplace before the 2006 remastered edition came out, would be present. But I can't find it......all the people selling this one, a small handfull of 'em, are from outside the U.S....hop on over to that one website that claims to be Earth's largest marketplace and there's plenty of folks seemingly in a tizzy to get rid of the edition I own, pricing it almost "too" low...I remember coming across an article by some website employee that was posing the question of weather or not sites like goHastings.com (now defunct) should be allowed, legally, to offer CDs at the prices they do. Absurd concept, IMO, but apparently not everyone agrees...I heard someone citing an interview with Garth Brooks saying he believed used CDs in general should be illegal (on what grounds I can't imagine, especially back then...sites like Rhapsody might have just started popping up, I can't remember when I heard this exchange taking place among the employees of a used CD store where I used to live). Anyway...this CD is good. I prefer the first 3 tracks and the closing 3. 4 & 5 are OK. 6 & 7 are annoying. The 2006 bonus track version is dumb. "Disco Inferno" was left off the soundtrack because the song's inclusion in the movie was an indirect reference to another soundtrack. If you like "Disco Inferno", why not just buy the SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER soundtrack?! And that remix of the Ray Parker Jr. composition just sounds retarded. And I prefer the back cover-art for the original. The redux includes the same images, and then shrinks them to make room for a bunch of text that doesn't really say anything. They would have been better off changing the rear cover-art to accommodate the addition of the "Legacy Records" and "FBI Anti-Piracy" logos etc...There's plenty of ways they could have done that. The remastering job isn't all that noticeable. The CD edition I own sounds perfectly fine. Maybe a high end stereo system would reveal a significance in the remastering that was done. There are a good number of instances where, with my cheap Panasonic headphones, I can tell a difference in the remastered edition vs. the prior edition. This was not one of them, although with my slightly higher priced KOSS headphones that may not be the case....but with the defiled cover-art and the obtrusive presence of worthless bonus tracks, I'd stick with this one and encourage others to do the same...

This is the vinyl album, not the 12". It must not be here

I feel that a lot of 80s soundtrack albums have dated quite badly. Many of them were funky and fresh when the accompanying movie was released but feel kinda lost and obscure now. Cobra is a good example of this. The songs work in the movie but you'd be embarrassed to play them at parties in 2017.

With one main exception, Ghostbusters holds up very well. Everyone knows and loves the theme song, so I'll skip over that. Saving the Day and Magic are still awesome. Whenever I hear the former I imagine myself driving through Manhattan while being cheered on by huge crowds while dark clouds gather around Spook Central. Just...awesome! A couple of Elmer Bernstein's score tracks are included as well as an instrumental version of the theme song to beef it up to 10 tracks. Overall, I think this is a very nice and easy-going soundtrack with a few great highlights. Any movie fan must buy and Ghostbusters fans will probably already own.

I loved this as a kid, now I'm over 40 and my kid loves it. The 2nd time around I'm not liking it as much. It doesn't have the long lasting staying power as other great albums. It's fun and works for the film.

I chuckle at the semi-expensive modern reissues (including a 2015 Newbury version, not yet listed on here). Colored vinyl notwithstanding, WHY BOTHER? For such a phenomenal movie, this soundtrack is awful. Ray Parker is good, of course. But do you need an extended instrumental version of his song? I'm thinking no. And Mick Smiley's "Magic" is a cool song ... well, the first couple minutes are good, anyway...

The rest is just bad. Dan Aykroyd has really bad taste in music, and it feels like his hands are all over this.

Who you gonna call? Ghostbusters! Although the Ray Parker Jr pop tune is perhaps the most well-known song from this film, several other pop songs appear as well as a couple of orchestrial scores.

The stand out pop track here is Magic by Mick Smiley, a powerful love song with dark overtones that can be easily mixed with Phil Collins' Something in the Air Tonight. In fact, the start of this track is almost identical to that. An intrumental version appears briefly in the film during the Protection Grid shut down aftermath. Why this Mick Smiley artist didn't go on to become a major known artist in his own right is beyond me. I love this track. It will be my wedding song!

There is now also a limited release Varese Sarabonde version of the soundtrack containing all of the wonderful original Elmer Bernstein orchestrial scores. Highly recommended.
