    aj_vader got a reaction from Manakin Skywalker in How obsessed are you with editing expanded SW Prequel scores   
    I used to spend hours/days on creating an Episode 3 Ultimate/Expanded/Complete Edition, but eventually just got tired of hearing sound effects in it and vowed to wait until the official releases arrive. That was 9 years ago...

    The Star Wars OT Blu-rays don't look like full HD to me. Revenge of the Sith is the only good transfer.

    I love the first Potter, but already have all of it. I don't care much for the second. The third is great, but it's no match for 3 Star Wars scores.

    Most definitely the prequels first. I don't own any SW video games so the only music I have access to is the OSTs and the UE of TPM.

    This is a tough one because I love the unreleased Prisoner of Azkaban Score, however I have to go with the Star Wars Prequels. 
    Judging how much is in the movie and the alternates we've heard in the video games etc. I can't see it fitting onto 2 CD's. I just hope all the material is still available. From what I've heard studios just don't take care of the material, scores, recordings etc.

    Yes. This is a slightly different version which was first described by Chris Malone in his massive STAR WARS Analysis. There is about 20 seconds in the STORY OF THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK LP as well. Its probably a fix or an insert that was done at the sessions (maybe on the same day as the Imperial March was recorded)  So its this, Yoda's sequence alternate, and the Film Version of End Credits that remain unreleased (on the expanded sets) The rest is all on the 2CD & Arista set. When ever this project happens, I'd wish that they would also prepare the film version edits of the Main Title/Imperial Probe/Ice Planet Hoth as a bonus. Williams would never allow this sequence to be part of the the main album sequence preferring his own ominous version with the Imperial March theme. I just love the film versions rather subdued quieter approach.

    The Empire Strikes Back does have The Imperial March (The Imperial Fleet Scene) but the one on the CD (any release) doesn't sound much like the version used in the film. I'm hoping this is in a future release at some point. As well as the film version of the Finale/Credits.

    The master tapes have been lost for decades. Pretty sure you don't have it. I don't even have it, and I horde every piece of audio I can get my hands on. If there was a film version of the Imperial March available, I would have been all over it like hotcakes! (I think that's a term, right?)

    Yeah that's kind of what I was trying to say before. You put it into better words... I'm by no means an expert in the art of film composing, so I'll leave you to the technical jargon. xD

    The strings are more Marcato in the film version, the piatti's are a lot louder in the film version, you can't turn them down in mixing, they are too loud. It's one of the main reasons I know its a different recording. You play any version on top of the film version and it doesn't sync up.

    No, the orchestration is a little too different, and I think the tempo might be a little faster (although that could have just been an editing 'glitch' or something).
    I'm going to go through my Blu-Ray rip quickly just to compare the versions we have...

    The anthology version is the closest we have, but it really is the same as the LP version but with a lot more reverb and a little more compression and EQ. It's essentially the same mix. The special edition mix is awful! 
    It's not, but I really really wish it was.

    So other than that, all we have of the film version is the interview piece from the video, and a DVD/Blu-Ray rip of it (and trust me, it sounds terrible!)

    Yes. It's the Imperial Audiophile Edition. See more information on this site:

    Yes. Except that's just what's heard on the OST, whereas you're looking for an alternate take which probably isn't on there.

    "Darth Vader's Theme [Concert Version]" would be it. There's no way this isn't a fan edit though... so it wouldn't be the film take, just the OST version.

    ^What he said. It's technically a concert recording, so it wouldn't be in any of the reels I'm guessing.
