Dr.Chris Record Spotlight The Empire Strikes Back

Posted in 80s, music, sci-fi, StarWars, vinyl with tags , , , on May 4, 2018 by chrisdsav

It has been over a year since I did a record spotlight. Wow ….There honestly is no exscuse well in honor of Star Wars day we say May the 4th Be with you and well be doing TWO of these a month. Yup and what better sound track to start than THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK.

Composed by the amazing John Willaims for George Lucas and directed by Irvin Kirshner, its considered the best Star Wars films. Albeit to argue one of the best films of all time. The most iconic score on the soundtrack is the Imperial March and Yodas theme. Below you can some ome liner notes that were included with records at the time and as of today some stilk have them. This was pre internet. Today you can just look at pictures of Star Wars when ever you want. I had to include that awesome picture of Boba Fett and Darth Vader talking to each other about the fate of Han Solo. Fett was such a minor character in this film but so awesome they had to out him in this cool full color image in side the album.

My copy was found at a flea market in Fitchburg Ma. along with a mint copy of the original soundtrack. I also found soundtracks to Star Trek 1 and 2. The record it self is in MINT condition the sleeve however is a bit roughed up as you can see in the image above. You get both classic posters for the film on the front and back.

I love how the hiss of the vinyl and the an ticipation of Williams iconic score really brings this album to life.

I can’t reccomend this enough and its been rereleased a few times so tracking one down should not be hard.
