Not the "Orgignal" Max Rebo Band :(

"After receiving this, I was expecting the original music from Max Rebo and his band as heard in the original Jedi (before Lucas trash the audio soundtrack UGH!).This has that lame song that was "created" for the special edition of Jedi. Now Max and the band originally performed at least two songs in the "classic" Jedi. 'Laptinek' which was sung by Sny Snoodles (pardon my spelling on the song and singer).And of course the real cool jam they did while Jabba's barge was cruising through the desert to the pit.But those two songs are not present on this CD."
FALSE ADVERTISING: NOT JOHN WILLIAMS!

"As a lifelong John Williams and Star Wars, BEWARE!
This is not the 1983 "Lapti Nek" music as heard in the 1983 version of the film, the 1983 original soundtrack release, and the 1993 Anthology Boxed set.
This is the drivel known as "Jedi Rocks" that is by Jerry Hey and found in the 1997 version of the film and the 1997 release of the soundtrack. I'm sure Jerry Hey is a fine artist (I loved his song on the Rocky III), but anything that is NOT by John Williams on a Star Wars CD is uttery shameful. Shamefl of Lucas to remove the original track, and relace it with anything NOT done by John Williams.
I recommend getting the 2-disc expanded sets and the 4-CD boxed set, but I don't recommend this."
