John Williams / Charles Gerhardt / National Philharmonic Orchestra - The Empire Strikes Back - Symphonic Suite - 180G Black Vinyl LP
Release Date: 23 July 2021
180G Black Vinyl LP
Originally released to supplement – not compete with – the 2-LP Motion Picture Soundtrack of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, this single LP release, skillfully combines a “Symphonic Suite” that John Williams' created for concert performance with new arrangements of other cues from the film score. This fantastic, long out of print album comes in a gatefold jacket with the original iconic Star Wars paintings by William Stout, images of John Williams, and notes from author Ray Bradbury, composer and critic, Christopher Palmer, and from the maestro himself.
