THESE CDS USE THE SAME MASTERS AS THE 1997 SPECIAL EDITION CDS!!!
I'm horribly disappointed. I'm baffled by the fact that the CD version didn't get the remaster treatment.
However, you're probably wondering "What's the big deal? Who cares if it's the same as the older releases? The music still sounds ok, right?" NOPE The 1997 CDs were plagued with numerous problems. Such as muddled instruments, loud tape hiss from the analog master, and some of the tracks sound down right truncated.
Compare this audio to the new remasters and you'll hear instruments in songs that you thought were never even there!
DO NOT BUY THIS SET. Terrible audio quality, no love was put into this set at all.
The packaging and presentation come with a minimalist black slipcover featuring the Star Wars logo with chrome silver lettering. Inside each film is presented with their original album jacket and artwork on the front and back covers. It's important to note that they all have a matte finish when compared to the original glossy album covers which make them quite distinguishable from their original album releases. They include "reproductions" of the original liner notes, insert booklets, dust jacket sleeves and even a reproduction album poster that was included with the original 1977 Episode IV LP but the quality is very fuzzy compared to the image resolution on their vintage counterparts.Read more ›
For the sake of brevity, I will keep this review simple. This 2016 collection contains the exact same contents as the 1997 RCA CDs, the 2004 Sony CDs, and the 2007 Sony reissues of the 2004 CDs for the OT, and the exact same contents as the 1999/2002/2005 releases for the prequel trilogy. Even though this box set appears on the same product page as the vinyl edition, the two products are NOT the same. The vinyl edition is a newly-remastered presentation of the original LP albums and a vinyl release of the original prequel albums, while the CDs sound no different than previous releases.
Most people who are interested in John Williams's "Star Wars" scores will have already purchased the exact same contents before. I cannot recommend that anyone spend a cent on this box set unless (a) you are a completist and simply must have every single "Star Wars" soundtrack version that has ever been released, (b) want a nice little box with some stickers and a blasé fold-out poster, (c) are desperate for an interview by John Williams and another one by Harrison Ford (???), or (d) enjoy wasting money and decide that actually getting something for your money makes more sense than simply setting fire to your cash.Read more ›
The box itself is well designed and sturdy as are all the LP jackets. Artwork reproduction is spot on. They reproduced all of the original inserts. Empire Strikes Back even has the booklet glued inside like the first release. The original soundtrack has the poster reproduced. It's like Christmas all over again. I wish Star Trek (looking at you Paramount) would do something like this for that franchises movies.
My only gripe is that the CD version has an audio interview and a DVD that are not included with this or the download card that comes with it, which is a big oversight considering that this costs 3 times as much as the CD version.
