According to a 2002 interview with Levon Helm, Garth Hudson contributed to the Right Stuff soundtrack:
"..when you watch The Right Stuff, when he (Yeager) breaks the sound barrier, forget about all the excitement and listen to the soundtrack. What you'll hear, down deep in there, is Garth Hudson. That's all him."The London Symphony Orchestra is credited for playing on all tracks on the album.
