4.0 out of 5 stars The Force is Getting Stronger with this One 31 Jan 2009
Format:Audio CD
This release is slightly better than the previous box set that was released by Sony as it comes in a beautiful foil box that houses the six discs for the three films each of which come in it's original LP casing.

It also contains the Correlian edition soundtrack that features music from every film and a bonus CD-ROM that has the cover art and sleeve notes etc. from the original LP releases it also comes with three stickers that have the CD art work from Sony's previous release of the soundtracks and unlike the other box set comes with sleeve notes not the best that have ever accompanied a star wars sound track but at least they have give us something they go over the history of all the previous releases of the soundtracks

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 really not much reason in getting this.

To say that Sony spent four months remastering the tracks when they released the first box set 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 films there is still material missing that hasn't been released since the Star Wars Anthology set.

As good, if not better, than the film itself. I would thoroughly recommend this to any Star Wars fan or John Williams fan

5.0 out of 5 stars As boxsets go, this one does the job. 27 Nov 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
There has been so much written about the various merits of the different releases of these recordings so I won't go on. However, I will defend this 30th anniversary edition. I missed out on the 1997/2004 pressings because I already have the 1993 Anthology boxset, which was such a god-send at the time. Perhaps I'm not judging the 30th anniversary collection so harshly because the booklet of notes in the anthology did such a fine job and I'm not missing the lack of such notes in this offering; but what I am really enjoying is the packaging of the original album artwork, particularly of the first soundtrack, which takes me right back to the late 70s! The CD ROM includes all the original artwork, including the free poster from the Star Wars double-LP, which I had on my wall for years. It's great to see it again and in such high quality TIFF detail. It's a pity the original liner notes weren't included but I've found them on the internet anyway.
Sound quality: a huge improvement on A New Hope, but not so discernible with Episodes V and VI.
Enjoyment factor: hyperspace. It's great to hear these soundtracks as truly masterful symphonic works but also as a warm piece of nostalgia, helped along by the inclusion of original artwork. Does it for me!
