The lovely score from the classic film.

(3 out of 5 stars)
"The official soundtrack to the blockbuster movie of the same name, this disc contains Barbra's rendition of the hit title song that was featured in the film (along with her brief vocal reprise that was used over the film's closing credits) as well as Marvin Hamlisch's underscore. This soundtrack sold well, reaching the Top 20 and going Gold (while Barbra's solo album that contained the single version of "The Way We Were" hit #1). The film version of the title song has a more lush, orchestrated sound than the more contemporary-sounding hit single version, and both versions, though significantly different, are equally brilliant. Barbra's vocals are top notch on both the single version and this soundtrack cut, which also has a slower tempo than the pop-oriented single recording. Hamlisch's score is lovely (if a little repetitive), however Barbra's soundtrack rendition of the title song is this record's main attraction. However, the soundtrack version of the song is also available on the JUST FOR THE RECORD... box set, so if you have that release than there's no real reason that anyone would need to own the soundtrack. Unless, that is, you just really love the underscore."
Lovely Romantic Oscar winning Score

"Marvin Hamlisch became famous the year he won all three music Academy Awards in one year. This film was responsible for two of those Academy Awards (his other Oscar was for his adaption of THE STING).This score is well worth listening to. It uses the title tune frequently and to good effect but also has several lovely supporting melodies. There are a few period pieces scattered in which only enhance the lovely mood created on this disk."
One of my all time favorites

"No matter how many times I see this movie, I like it more and more. Didn't quite notice the music the first time but the soundtrack is beautiful. A great movie you can enjoy over and over. Robert Redford at his best."
