Varèse Sarabande Records has announced that they are re-issuing the LP for The Empire Strikes Back, and it’s available to order starting today.
- Varèse Sarabande Records will be reissuing the long out-of-print LP for The Empire Strikes Back original motion picture score by John Williams.
- The original release was a supplement to the 2-LP motion picture soundtrack, but this 1-LP release combines the “Symphonic Suite” created by John Williams for concert performance, with new arrangements from the film score.
- The record is pressed on 180-gram black vinyl and housed in a gatefold jacket featuring original Star Wars paintings by William Stout, images of John Williams, and notes from author Ray Bradbury, composer Christopher Palmer, and John Williams.
- There are two limited exclusive versions: “Imperial Grey Marble” (Newbury Comics), and a Canadian exclusive on “Cloud City Orange” available only at Sunrise retail shops.
