The second track, Other Galactic Funk is, as another reviewer has mentioned, a bit of a novelty catch... in effect a long drum solo lesson in rhythm by renowned session drummer Allan Schwartzberg - takes a bit of getting used to as does not seem to go anywhere at first, but actually becomes quite mesmerising and enjoyable on subsequent listens.
So what have we got here? It honestly feels like an extended 12" with track 1 being side A, track 2 the b-side & the other 2 tracks (3 & 4) as a single for radio & disco.
It's interesting that there actually was a full album once available with other sci fi themes on it as well as these, it was available on the same record label with the same sleeve too & seems to have been deleted before this reissue. I'm tempted to think this is done mainly at this time to cash in on the new Star Wars the Force Awakens movie.
Honestly, don't pay more than £4.99 or but the triple CD Disco inferno which has various artists & the Meco Star wars cover included here on disc 1 of that box set.
This very pleasant 1977 hit which may sound somewhat anonymous these days should still get many people onto a dance floor while the "Other galactic Funk" although pleasant sounds more jazzy.
Then I realised it is still available. While having it on CD doesn't compare to having the original print on vinyl, it did make me feel a little better.
The highlight here is not the SW theme (though it is pretty dope), but the original b side, Other Galactic Funk (which was just called "Funk" on the single I had).
If you're a funk fan or a Star Wars fan, you'd be a wookie to miss this.
This is the definitive release of the associated Star Wars recordings by Meco. It contains the Star Wars suite with main themes from the score as track one. Track two is called other galactic funk and explores further the Star Wars main composition. Track three is the original 7" radio single edit. Track four is the brilliant extended original 12" mix. The whole album lasts 39 and half minutes.
There was a wealth of musicians and instruments on these recordings. There are over 50 violinists, 8 violas, 12 Cellos, 9 trumpets, 11 trombones, 9 on reeds, 5 French horns, 14 on guitars and then there are synthesizers, keyboards, percussion, drums, and auto harps.
Meco went on to use the same formula for other films such as Superman and The Wiz and there was a compilation best of album available on CD a few years ago which is very expensive. This however is the best way to get this classic Disco tribute to the original Star Wars score.
