There was never an orchestral soundtrack released for The Goonies. However, there was a "Best of Adventure" CD released in Germany a while ago that had a number of Goonies orchestral pieces.

That jailbreak piece you were talking about is indeed called "Fratelli Chase" and was written by David Grusin. It's available both on that David Grusin CD and Best of Adventure, although they are each different performances.

"Theme from the Goonies" was kind of a pop version of the Goonies theme that plays at the very end of the movie's final credits (following the Cindy Lauper tune). An orchestral version of the theme appears in the movie when Mikey and Brand hug each other on the porch as the lawyer guys leave.

As you can see, I've done a lot of research on this as well. In fact, back in 1996, I started a Goonies Orchestral Soundtrack online petition. Of course, nothing came of it.
