    Well I've played some tracks in ESB and it seems like some issues we noticed on the 2018 demasters are gone here?
     
    The first thing I played was that part at 4:39 in The Heroics of Luke and Han and it sounds normal here!

    Depends how you capture it. I guess the web browser player outputs stereo for example.
     
    Best chance to get this is by downloading the files directly from their servers, but I doubt it is legal and easy to do.

    If they did a proper release of the music we'd know by looking on the back cover of each release 😡

    The runtimes for the OT can also be determined from the Special Edition releases - ESB and ROTJ aren't completely accurate because there is a tiny amount of music missing from both of them, but these are approximately accurate:

    A New Hope - 91 minutes
    The Empire Strikes Back - 125 minutes
    Return of the Jedi - 148 minutes

    aj_vader reacted to Manakin Skywalker in John Williams - Star Wars: Total Run Time of Each Score   
    For the ST here are the full runtimes:
    The Force Awakens - 174 minutes
    The Last Jedi - 184 minutes
    The Rise of Skywalker - 226 minutes
    (These are official numbers)
     
    The runtimes for TPM and AOTC can be determined by combining the cue lengths in the recording logs, although that doesn't include alternate takes at all. I had to estimate the lengths of some of the inserts and source cues using my edits as a reference.
    The Phantom Menace - 127 minutes (approx.)
    Attack of the Clones - 119 minutes (approx.)
    Revenge of the Sith - 129 minutes (approx.)
     
    A New Hope - 93 minutes (approx.)
    The Empire Strikes Back - 129 minutes (approx.)

    Steve Martin was also there. The concert was great. I was lucky enough to speak to Mr Williams briefly and he was really nice. You can tell these events are getting really tiring for him.

    What a night! I was front row furthest to the left, which unexpectedly meant that when Williams left his seat to take the stage, he walked right past me! We locked eyes a couple times as he came and went from the stage. You can see him walk past me in the fourth slide of this post :

    The music was lovely as ever, the live-to-picture parts being especially fun and the pieces conducted by the Maestro himself the ultimate highlights of the evening. And it was indeed strange seeing him without his glasses! lol. I also don’t think Williams actually said a word to the audience.
     
    Here are some pics!

    aj_vader reacted to Trope in Remasters of the First 6 Star Wars Soundtracks now available (Shawn Murphy / Disney Records 2018)   
    At 2:11, Dann Michael Thompson says, "You will hear things you didn't hear before." He is correct. I didn't hear the awkward edits, incorrect performance takes, poor phase alignment, drop-outs, and the absence of a right stereo channel in TESB before listening to these demasters.
     
    He should also have said, "Things you did hear before you will never hear again," since Disney removed the far superior 2016 remasters from digital streaming services worldwide.
