Amazing music - but poor condition!

by Anna on 6/15/2015

I was very excited to receive this because I love Return of the Jedi, and I wanted a hard copy of the soundtrack. The first disc had no problems and the sound quality is fantastic-- however, I noticed that the case seemed to be BURNT around the edges (it smells like charcoal/barbecue and is completely blackened.) When I got to the end of the second disc, it started to skip horribly. I took it out and realize the disc had been burnt and damaged as well. Sometimes the skipping isn't as bad each time I listen to it, but I was still sort of disappointed that it would say "good" condition when there is visible damage. Read More

Album Notes and Credits
Composer: John Williams .
John Williams's scores for the original STAR WARS trilogy are not only spectacular, but historically significant. For RETURN OF THE JEDI, the last movie in the first series, Williams builds upon many of his previous themes. However, he does this in a fresh, creative way. For example, the film's opening "Main Title/Approaching the Death Star/Tatooine Rendezvous" includes snippets from Darth Vader's "The Imperial March." This is a menacing piece that underscores the ruthlessness of Vader and the wickedness of the Emperor.
"Jabba's Baroque Recital" is of the few tracks on this two-disc set that does not use an orchestra, but rather, a keyboard. This composition actually sounds more like an early Mozart pianoforte piece than a baroque fugue, but this does not detract from its charm or its cinematic value. The most exciting piece on RETURN OF THE JEDI is "The Battle of Endor I." The conceptual scope of Williams's music is emphasized in this lengthy composition. Filled with great contrast--including beautiful string interludes and violent, percussive segues--this piece stands out on its own. In fact, "The Battle of Endor I" can easily be enjoyed out of context; this is a true testament to Williams's compositional acumen.
