Producer/performer Meco's disco version of the Star Wars theme soared to #1, and the album hit #13! Here's the whole 1977 album, on CD for the first time, with a bonus 7" radio edit of Star Wars Theme/Cantina Band and a rare, promo-only DJ 12" remix. May the force-and the funk-be with you!

I would listen to a sample to make sure this is something you'd like, because it may not be everyone's cup of tea, but this is an awesome remix of the Star Wars music from the 1977 film (this is a CD release of a 1977 release, so it predates the other five). One of the other reviewers hit the nail on the head by saying its cheese. It has a great beat and it gives you great images of the characters disco skating to this. :D If you like Star Wars music, disco music, or just heard it somewhere and liked it (me, although I do like the films' music), get this disc.
The "Other Galactic Funk" is okay, but I came for Star Wars and that's the creme da la creme. There are three edits of the Star Wars music, the 15 minute full edit, the 3 minute radio edit, and 6 minute Promo DJ edit. Some may balk at a CD with just four tracks, two just shorter version of one of the other two, but the 15 minute edit alone is definitely worth the $7.52 here (plus the other two tracks are good if you don't have that much time to listen to the full version.
I am glad that this was re-released on CD.
The orignal LP just encluded "Star Wars" and "Other Galatic Funk"
This re-release also gives us the 45 rpm single (7" edit), and the 12" Disco Edit that were mainly played on the Radio at the time.
"Star Wars" is a great mix of inspired music from Meco that he saw fit from the movie. A must for any Star Wars fan (before Lucas ruined the movie), and also children from the 70's.
"Other Galactic" funk is a very rare track for Meco, he takes the marching rhythm and the sounds he heard from the city streets to produce a real good marching themed track.
Now there are other albums from Meco I have not seen on CD yet, and they are
"Encounters of Every Kind" - A fantastic voyage using a 'Time Machine' based story line for the entire album. This is by far my most favorite Meco album. Since this album features a great deal of sound effects, including a full drive by shooting before the song "Crazy Rhythm" when the time machine visits the 1920's era.
"Wizard Of Oz" - Meco visits and arranges music from the classic MGM movie.
"Superman and Other Galactic Heroes" - Meco sets out on a musical adventure as Superman.
"Moondancer" - Meco, the Moon and Disco Music... nothing else more to say.
"Meco Pop Goes To The Movies" - Meco's has taken famous movie themes, such as "M*A*S*H", "Gone With The Wind", "The Pink Panther", and more and has remixed them as his own versions.
Yeah, it's disco - but it's *good* disco. I actually filed it under "funk," it's so groovalicious.
