WOW - What a legacy! Twenty-five years of STAR WARS! The movie and it's music that took the world by storm. Just think, that incredible story came to the big screen 25 years ago today! And the greatest of all symphonic scores was ingrafted into the minds of hundreds of thousands of people. I am truly sorry I didn't get to experience that thrill. If only I'd been born a few years earlier. I am glad and fortunate that Star Wars was introduced to me at an early age. I used to listen to my Dad's old 2 record soundtrack repeatedly. Now I listen to the 2-CD set, and I never tire of hearing it. So my favorite Star Wars memory would have to be listening to the old 2-record set! What's your favorite memory? And, MAY THE FORCE BE WITH ALL THOSE AWESOME, DEDICATED STAR WARS FANS OUT THERE!!!

A great memory I have was listening to the Sandpeople Attack over and over again on the original 2 record set. My mom gave me the soundtrack AND the read-along-as-you-listen book and record for Christmas 1977. It made an irreversable impression. The Sandpeople track, with its incredible percussion and speeding strings, for whatever reason, mesmerized me. I was so moved by it, that I created a (very) short comic book that had a little battle scene that went along with the music. I was 10 at the time, and I have been keeping up with all Williams movie music since.

> While Lucas went nuts with the editing on TPM and it's music during the final battles, he also made a bad cut up in ANH. Witness the sand people percussion bit being mutilated. Go with Williams' flow, Lucas.... let him decide what's best with the music AND the film.
