Okay, you same Star Wars maniacs who have been entering our Kotobukiya Luke vs. Vader contest–listen up–because our friends at Sony have offered up a copy of the 30th Anniversary The Music of Star Wars Collector’s Edition for you to win. It’s an eight-disc set that lists for about US$90.
“Eight discs?” you might well ask. Yes. Each of the original (and only, dammit, the only) trilogy films gets their own two-disc soundtrack bit, mastered from their Expanded Editions. It says that each of them are “housed in a gatefold mini-jacket that is a scale reproduction of the original LP cover art.”
As for the next two discs, here’s what they tell us:
The seventh CD is Star Wars: The Corellian Edition. This is a collection of the most popular Star Wars themes from all six episodes â€“ on one CD, for the first time. The new recording takes its name from the Corellian System, a fictional group of “core worlds” at the heart of the Star Wars galaxy. The 13-track Corellian Edition CD can be purchased separately. (The stand-alone version, housed in a single jewel case, became available in stores October 2, 2007. Its track lists and credits are printed on a newly designed six-panel, fold-out mini-poster.)
The eighth CD in the premium box set is a CD-ROM. Its digital artwork files faithfully reproduce all of the inserts â€“ including gatefolds and posters â€“ that were packaged with the original LP vinyl recordings of the themes from Star Wars Episodes IV, V and VI.
This set also comes with:
- An exclusive new 15″ x 15″ fold-out poster celebrating Episodes IV, V and VI;
- Three collectible 4″ x 4″ stickers, each featuring a four-color reproduction of the CD cover from the Expanded Edition soundtrack of one of these episodes;
- New notes on the history of the first Star Wars soundtrack; and
- Track lists and credits for the CDs.
