Back to Titanic is the second soundtrack album released for the film, which contains a mixture of previously unreleased recordings and newly-recorded performances of the songs in the film.
In addition, several of the source numbers from the film were included into this second album. From "Nearer My God to Thee" to the raucous pipe and drum rhythms heard in the Irish folk music played in the lower decks, these selections recreate the most poignant moments in the life and death of the great ship.
"Alexander's Ragtime Band" was played on the deck by Wallace Hartley's small orchestra and lifted spirits as the ship settled, lights blazing, into black oblivion. And "Come Josephine, In My Flying Machine", which Jack Dawson briefly sings for Rose, which she later sings when she is waiting to be rescued in the freezing seas. The song was a top hit song the year before the sinking.
Although it didn't manage to reach the success of its counterpart soundtrack, Back to Titanic was a big commercial success, specially considering that the film and original soundtrack were released over eight months before it. It debuted at #7 on the Billboard 200 and then the following week reached its peak position of #2 with 164,000 copies sold (it was knocked-off the top spot by Lauryn Hill's The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill which sold 265,000 copies that same week). Back to Titanic has been certified platinum in the United States for sales of over 1 million copies.
