The customer review on the German Amazon site says it contains tracks taken from the film itself:

Hope this helps

David Newman's long-out-of-print rerecording is fantastic--this is actually a great price on it since I recently saw it listed on amazon for $140!

I remember when it was going for under a few it's so hard to get now, as I agree (as I have on every thread mentioning it) that it's a great disc.

On Amazon it's available used at a very reasonable price...

I just keep hoping that one day someone will release the original tracks on CD. My frustration is only compounded by the mention in the notes of the Newman/Telarc CD about acetates of the original scoring sessions that they listened to for reference.
