COMING SOON: THE MUSIC OF STAR WARS: 30th ANNIVERSARY COLLECTION.
This November, Sony BMG will make available a 30th Anniversary commemorative collection of the classic Star Wars soundtracks in a collectors' edition foil-printed boxed set. Inside are eight CDs, filled with John Williams' unforgettable Star Wars score. Each film of the original trilogy (Episodes IV, V and VI) has their score spread on two discs, accounting for six discs in total. The remaining two discs include a special Star Wars: The Corellian Edition compilation of the most popular themes from all six episodes on one disc, as well as a CD-ROM of digital art of the original LP packaging, posters and insert. The set also comes with an all-new exclusive poster and collectable stickers. Keep checking starwars.com for more information on this set as November approaches.
So hmm... looks like the special edition soundtracks get recycled and you get a disc of highlights that we've all already made a playlist of on itunes. But it comes with stickers!!!
Just thought I pass the news for those interested!
Since I have none of the soundtracks (except a 3 pack I bought way back in 97 which I think is barely official), that set is tempting. The fact it's put out by Sony BMG is making me hesitant though. Boycotting the RIAA sure makes buying the music you want hard
