Since the first Globe Trekker TV show was produced, the team of composers who create the soundtrack have been pushing back the boundaries of television music. The scores blendmusic and sounds recorded on location into compositions and arrangements by musicians more usually associated with hit records and classical albums.
Earth Journeys Volume 2 contains music from Globe Trekker episodes in Greenland, Jamaica, China, Mexico, Uzbekistan, Turkey, India, Middle East, Chile, Vietnam, Baja California, and West Africa. It also features a remix of the Globe Trekker theme song.
