The best compilation of the original Trilogy
Juan Alberto Diaz Wiechers | Santiago Chile | 05/30/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This recording provides the best orchestral arrangements prepared by John Williams for his three original Star Wars motion pictures. It is a sort of suite of the best of his three suites. And the recording quality is excellent. Then, if you want in a single CD the best of the first trilogy, I recommend this work. If you want longer suites of the three initial movies, you can acquire the beatiful concert suites played by Charles Gerhardt and the National Philharmonic Orchestra (two on RCA Victor and one on Varese). It seems that the initial releases of John Williams (with the original Soundtrack arrangements) are no longer available. Finally, if you like the complete scores, without concert arrangements, following the story development, you can aquire the De Luxe editions of RCA Victor."
Star Wars -- 'Nuff Said

"All I can say about this score is that it truely is Star Wars. The music in the original Star Wars Trilogy I believe is by far John Williams's greatest masterpiece. The music in this CD was performed at Skywalker Ranch by some of the greatest musicians in California. I have all three of the Special Edition 2cd albums, which contain practically all the music in the movies, but this cd is so powerful and moving that I still enjoy playing it occasionally for the slight differences in playing style. I especially love the extra long finale at the end. Only on this cd have I heard an extended version of the Throne Room/Finale. Other great themes include Leia's theme, Luke&Leia's theme, Yoda's Theme, and my all time favorite--The Imperial March! The cd is digitally mastered for superior sound and doesn't have a single crackle on the whole thing. If you are a Star Wars fanatic like me, buy this cd. You won't be disappointed."
