Re: New Indiana Jones score CDs coming...

The press release says the soundtracks are "expanded," which doesn't necessarily mean "complete." The title "The Complete Soundtracks Collection" could mean that the overall collection is complete in the sense of containing the scores to all four movies, not necessarily that each individual soundtrack is comprehensive.

As for why KotCS wasn't "expanded," I'd guess it's because the previous three scores were originally released on LP, a format that could hold only about 45 minutes of music, while the fourth movie was originally released on CD, a format that can hold about 70 minutes of music. So the KotCS soundtrack release probably wasn't abridged to begin with, at least not to the same extent the originals were.
