If you were anywhere between the ages of 6 and 15 in 1977 (I was 10), chances are you played the heck out of the original double-album STAR WARS sound track until the grooves wore out. Back then, you probably listened mostly to the cantina music and the opening fanfare, but couldn't really be bothered with some of those 7-minute long pieces that didn't seem quite as punchy as those funky oboes in the Jawa Sandcrawler theme.

Now that you're all grown up, pick up this beautiful CD that doesn't have all those affectionate hisses and pops from overplay that you remember from vinyl, and listen to the rest of the album -- you'll be surprisingly pleased at what you may have missed sprawled out on the living room floor all those years ago. Apart from sheer listening pleasure, you'll also have the help of Michael Matessino's careful notes on each track, which will ensure you'll have a new appreciation for the use of themes that John Williams incorporates throughout even the smallest pieces.

I found Matessino's notes to be, perhaps, the most useful I've read in any film score package, and it's obvious that Matessino sat down and took careful notes on the score while the film was rolling. Matessino always has an interesting take on things, and is great at pointing out things a listener (without the benefit of the film rolling at the same time) might have missed -- find out why, for example, Matessino believes that Leia's theme was played at the moment of Ben Kenobi's death, rather than his own theme. The notes are just terrific, and Mattesino's prose is surprisingly bouncy.
Apart from the beautiful sound and terrific notes, the CD also captures some "behind the scenes" takes, including the first-ever run through of the STAR WARS Main Theme.
Put on this CD and prepare for an afternoon of heavy waves of childhood flashbacks -- but DON'T NEGLECT THOSE LINER NOTES!

If you purchased the original 1977 2-LP Star Wars soundtrack album.....
Or its CD re-release - which is now out of print, as they say....
Or if you bought the 4-disc Star Wars Trilogy boxed set....
If you thought you'd heard the entire score to any of the classic trilogy and don't own the Special Edition sets....well, you missed out on quite a bit.
This 2-CD collection of music composed and conducted by John Williams for Star Wars: A New Hope is the definitive version of one of the most popular soundtrack albums ever. Released in conjunction with the Special Edition re-release of the Classic Star Wars Trilogy, this 1997 album contains the complete score that added so much magic and wonder to George Lucas' beloved first installment of the Star Wars saga.
With the addition of Alfred Newman's 20th Century Fox Fanfare (with CinemaScope extension) and the tracks presented in proper order and as they appeared in the film, John Williams' fans can now hear a digitally remastered and glorious score. Because Nick Redman (who has produced many of Williams' "ultimate" re-releases) aims for completeness and accuracy here, gone are the "concert arrangements" and "cut-and-paste" segues where "tracks" from different scenes are patched together because "they sound good together." For instance, in previous "original soundtrack" albums the producer took cues from the rescue of Princess Leia, Ben Kenobi's mission at the tractor beam terminal, and the Battle of Yavin, combining them into the track titled "The Last Battle." A hard task and it sounds fine, but that's not what we heard in the movie.

I have listened to John Williams score for this film from start to finish more times than I've watched the film!

This music captures the essence of the story extremely well - maybe even better than the film itself. While the first disc moves extremely slowly, the music begins to pick up speed as things actually begin to happen in the film ("Tales of a Jedi Knight", track 8, is the start of the really engaging music). At the end of the first disc, you get the special treat of hearing the different takes of the original Star Wars scores (16-20). The first two takes were discarded, and the one we hear on disc and in the movies is a blend of takes 18, 19, and 20. Very nice touch, and interesting in terms of knowing the evolution of the music.

Disc two starts with a concert suite of Princess Leia's theme which is extremely touching, lots of strings/French horn. Then the rest of the disc, after "The Destruction of Alderaan" and "The Death Star/The Stormtroopers", is mostly action music, besides the music for Ben Kenobi's sneaking around.

The last several tracks are what many consider the crown jewel here, beginning with "Ben Kenobi's Death/TIE Fighter Attack" - a great piece of bombastic action music, accelerating into "The Battle of Yavin IV" (the pronouncement of the 'Force Theme' when Ben tells Luke to use the Force is still the most touching moment)and finishing with one of Williams's crowning achievements - that of course being the "Throne Room/End Credits" sequence, five and a half minutes of pure magic, and probably my most played track from this set.
