Star Wars audio books (with JW's music)

Recommended Posts

I saw these two entries on www.jw-collection.de:

2004 KRIEG DER STERNE - Original-Hörspiel zum Film -

2006 STAR WARS - Die Original-Filmhörspiele - (6 CD)

First thing, are the Germans the only ones who did that (no other international editions)?

Is there others releases or just these two?

--> I really talk about the audio books, not the Original Radio Drama releases or even the old children's narrated story books.

I have an audio CD at home of "Crimson Empire" I think it was called, and there is original John Williams music used including the only way to get the "Finale" from TESB with its full ending (instead of seguing to the End Credits).

Yes, I already heard of that... I will add it "where-you-know".

Never heard about these German audio Books?

A friend of mine has the first mentioned recording as a tape. It's actually very humorous in its nature because they tend to use really silly wordings to describe characters and scenes ("...C3PO und sein pummliger kleiner Freund R2D2", roughly translated: ...C3PO and his roly-poly little friend R2D2). It's made for kids, so this is understandable.

I'll have a look. I think most of the books have been released as audiobooks at this point (be it abridged or unabridged).


Audio books: http://jedi-bibliothek.de/blog/datenbank/typ/hoerbuch/?lang=englisch

Audio dramas: http://jedi-bibliothek.de/blog/datenbank/typ/hoerspiel/?lang=englisch

Neither are necessarily complete but I don't know where you'll find a more complete list. You'll have to verify yourself if they all contain JW music or not. All the modern ones definitely do. You should be able to at least find snippets of them all on youtube.

Thanks a lot for you help. :)

It's not that these entries are very important to a discography, but they belongs to.

One thing is sure, I can't add entries in my disco if the infos has not been verified.

Nobody here collected all these audio-books?

Labyrinth of Evil, Revenge of the Sith, Darth Bane: Path of Destruction, Darth Plagueis definitely do have music as they're the ones I've heard myself.

Conducted by John Williams himself or played by other orchestras?

Here's the first draft based on the websites Wookiepedia and jedi-bibliothek.de.

I've putted "????" where I suspect the music (if there is) is not conducted by John Williams.

Please tell me all the entries where John Williams is not the conductor of the music.

Thanks!

So, all the entries listed in my earlier post are candidates for the discography?

All the music is composed AND conducted by John Williams?

And about these ones, any confirmation someone?
