RCA Issue: Regular vs. Deluxe   Tuesday, May 31, 2005 (7:07 a.m.) 

Back when the RCA 2 disc editions of the score were issued, there were two seperate versions of the 2CD sets (In the UK at least).

A regular 2CD jewel case issue, together with the sleeve booklet with liner notes, and a Deluxe 2CD issue. This looked to have the CD and liner notes housed in a small hardback book which was in turn housed in a slipcase.

Despite having the 2CD jewel case version of the OT scores, I'm keen on getting the Deluxe versions. Is there any difference in the liner notes etc between the 2CD jewel case and 2CD Deluxe sets ? Despite the disc art being different between the two, I'd expect the music itself to be identical between the two sets.

Thanks in advance for any info anyone may have,

Bren

Nope, no difference at all. The liner-notes book is, from what I remember (and this might be wrong) glued into the hardback on one side, much like The Phantom Menace Ultimate Edition is. I'll double check next time I see my brother (he has the "book" ROTJ, I have the "jewel case" one)
