22nd April 2016

The original soundtracks of Star Wars – Star Wars: The Ultimate Vinyl Collection (11 LPs), Star Wars: The Ultimate Soundtrack Edition (10 CDs plus DVD) and Star Wars: The Ultimate Digital Collection (hi-resolution download).

All composed by the legendary five-time Oscar-winning composer, John Williams, these collector’s sets are being reissued after the latest chapter in the saga, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, opens in theatres.

Star Wars: The Ultimate Vinyl Collection includes each of the six film soundtracks: from Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace to Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi – in gatefold sleeves replicating the original artwork. Audio was transferred from the original LP masters and pressed with heavy 180gm vinyl.
