"I worn out this vinal LP when it originaly came out.I am glad that this was re-released on CD.The orignal LP just encluded "Star Wars" and "Other Galatic Funk"This re-release also gives us the 45 rpm single (7" edit), and the 12" Disco Edit that were mainly played on the Radio at the time."Star Wars" is a great mix of inspired music from Meco that he saw fit from the movie. A must for any Star Wars fan (before Lucas ruined the movie), and also children from the 70's."Other Galactic" funk is a very rare track for Meco, he takes the marching rhythm and the sounds he heard from the city streets to produce a real good marching themed track.Now there are other albums from Meco I have not seen on CD yet, and they are"Encounters of Every Kind" - A fantastic voyage using a 'Time Machine' based story line for the entire album. This is by far my most favorite Meco album. Since this album features a great deal of sound effects, including a full drive by shooting before the song "Crazy Rhythm" when the time machine visits the 1920's era."Wizard Of Oz" - Meco visits and arranges music from the classic MGM movie."Superman and Other Galactic Heroes" - Meco sets out on a musical adventure as Superman."Moondancer" - Meco, the Moon and Disco Music... nothing else more to say."Meco Pop Goes To The Movies" - Meco's has taken famous movie themes, such as "M*A*S*H", "Gone With The Wind", "The Pink Panther", and more and has remixed them as his own versions."
I still have it!

"I have this L.P. at home here. It's in great condition, but it's not like I can hook up a record player in my car when I'm going to work. I love the sound of the 70's and Star Wars is one of my favorite movies, so when I found that they put this on CD, I was psyched! Disco lives on!"
