Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Given that it's largely credited with reinventing Hollywood--or at least fostering its overweening box office expectations--it's hard to imagine that the genesis of George Lucas' sprawling, multi-billion dollar Star Wars franchise was once considered a risky studio proposition at best. But Lucas himself has wisely singled out the robust, retro-romantic music of composer John Williams as the unlikely artistic linchpin that holds all of the saga's disparate dramatic, thematic and technical elements firmly together. Boxed together here then are three of the most successful and influential film scores of modern Hollywood, work that draws as much on Williams' masterful sense of classical music history as it does his own well-studied melodic and arranging instincts. Each of the three double-disc collections here contains all of the music written for Star Wars: A New Hope, Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi (and even Alfred Newman's introductory "Fox Fanfare"), newly upgraded via Direct Stream Digital remastering that adds stunning new presence and clarity to Williams' rousing, epochal scores. Each chapter also features a lenticular 3-D cover and newly designed fold-out film poster; the ultimate musical compendium of the original Star Wars triptych. --Jerry McCulley

4.0 out of 5 stars NOT More of the same.... 19 Sep 2004
Format:Audio CD
....nope - this is one case where the re-mastering shows.
Using the latest DSD processing, these soundtracks (which are track-for-track identical to the Special Edition SOundtracks released on 1997) have been given a good dust-off and now sound better than ever. Even the Return of the Jedi Soundtrack sounds astonishing, although it seemed to generally have the worst sound quality in the 1997 releases.
Why only 4 stars then? OK - here we go with a whinge or two..
1) There is STILL some music missing - the Return of the Jedi 2-disc set is missing some cues, most noticeably Lapti Nek and the original Ewok Celebration
2) The more the sets are re-mastered and tinkered with, the more the original sound quality disappears, which in the case of Star Wars (or Episode IV, if you must...) is a bit of a shame - there was a very distinct sound on the original releases which is missed....
3) The perfunctory extra content - there is nothing that isn't already available somewhere else....with the minor exception of the physical contents of the booklets...
These things aside, this is a set well worth spending a few quid on, even if (like me) you already have the 1997 re-issues.
May the force be with you...

5.0 out of 5 stars More than worth the price. 2 Oct 2004
By Darran
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Considering that there are Cds out there that cost the same but contain,(at best)12 songs, this CD is more than worth the money with 75 tracks.
Not to mention that some tracks contain more than one piece of music.
To be fair, the CDs do contain a fair amount of filler material that you probably won't listen to. However these are overshadowed by the amount of wonderful atmospheric tracks.
I would recommend the following tracks:
Disc 1:
2. Main Title/Rebel Blockade Runner Medley
4. The Dune Sea of Tatooine/Jawa Sandcrawler Medley
10. Mos Eisley Spaceport
11. Cantina Band
Disc 2:
9. Ben Kenobi's Death/Tie Fighter Attack Medley
10. The Battle of Yavin
Disc 3:
2. Main Title/The Ice Planet Hoth Medley
5. The Battle of Hoth Medley (Ion Cannon/Imperial Walkers/Beneath the AT-AT/Escape in the Millennium Falcon)
Disc 4:
1. The Imperial March
12. The Rebel Fleet/End Title Medley (The under appreciated Star Wars Classic)
Disc 5:
8. The Emperor Arrives/The Death of Yoda/Obi-Wan's Revelation Medley
14. Jedi Rocks (although the scene its in is dreadful)
Disc 6:
7. The Battle Of Endor II Medley (Leia Is Wounded - The Duel Begins/Overtaking the Bunker/The Dark Side Beckons/The Emperor's Death)
10. Victory Celebration/End Title Medley
If you're a Star Wars fan this is more than a bargain and if you're not its an excellent example of Epic Film music from one of the World's best modern composers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Star Wars sound tracks CD ROM set. 8 Jan 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Just to add to gorkyoftrebizond from Trabzon, Turkey review, I find this CD ROM the best in quality sound.
It takes you through the whole Star Wars films musically which includes the Cantina Band (when Luke and Ben meet Han and Chewie in the bar) and their second number played (CD 1 disk one) but it also includes the other rare Darth Vader March theme(CD2). These tracks were only available from US Sources in CD singles before this stunning collection.
Side one takes you from the Fox introduction then the music will take you through the films. Side one on each CD takes you roughly through the first part of the film or half way through.
Each CD side is about an hour or hour and fifteen minutes long and it is the whole score of each part of the film.
It is highly collectable and comes with the 3D CD cover and inlcudes the poster from the original films (mostly US release) but I found that the websites for the screensavers did not recognise my CD's to download. Very dissapointing as I inserted both CD's into my drive but could not get joy from this.
If you are planning a Star Wars night or want to use the music for a quiz then I can highly recommend this 3 CD set to you; even if you are just a Star Wars collector then this is for you.
If you know the films music you will already know the tracks, it is worth buying.
May the Force be with YOU.

4.0 out of 5 stars All to easy 31 Jan 2009
Format:Audio CD
This release is good for anyone that missed out on the original 1997 RCA Victor releases but for those that already have them there is no point in getting this as it is inferior it doesn't contain the in-depth sleeve notes that the previous releases have and the cover art is nowhere near as good they are just the covers that were used on the 2004 releases of the DVD's and the last thing is to say that Sony spent four months remastering the tracks the sound quality hasn't really changed at all it is probably only noticeable on high end speaker systems

And once again they haven't given us everything as all of the music is from the special editions of the film there is still material missing that hasn't been released since the star wars anthology set.
5 out of 10.

The only problem I had with this was when my husband put the track selection on random - a very odd experience!
Love this music.

5.0 out of 5 stars John Williams Classic Movie Soundtrack Supreme 2 Jan 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It is remarkable how much the Star Wars Original Trilogy has become part of our culture - and how taken for granted the stunning soundtracks to the trilogy and the supposedly inferior Prequil trilogy are. Of course, Williams uses famous classical composers for inspiration, but he has lifted the movie soundtrack above any one else with these and his work on Jaws, Indiana Jones and Jurassic Park.

This is my son's introduction to orchestral music - he loves the films - and what a great way to start. The themes are simply excellent - from the opening fanfare, to the Darth Vader March, the Force theme, Leia's theme - these really are great to hear. The Prequil trilogy also has great music, like Battle of the Heroes and Darth Maul's theme and the recording of these 'lesser' film soundtracks are wonderful.

I am a musician, but I am not a technician. These just sound great to me. Clear, bright recordings, played superbly by the LSO, conducted by the composer. Not the kind of thing I normally buy, but you'd have to have a hole in your soul and collective memory not to rise in your chair when you hear this recording.

It might not be as original as Beethoven, Wagner or Strauss, but it's damn good music just the same.
