Donnie, I haven't heard anything about the soundtrack coming to SACD or DVD-Audio. It would be kind of sad if the soundtrack comes to hi-rez before the original trilogy comes to DVD. :frowning:
Without trying to start a war here, I don't think the Star Wars soundtrack would have much of an impact on the hi-rez landscape. In other words, if one format were to get the soundtrack, I don't think that format would have the upper hand in the long run. Sure, the music is great, but I don't think sales of the soundtrack would put one format over the top. I just don't see the masses clammoring for the Star Wars soundtrack on a hi-rez format. Perhaps I'm just dumb.
If memory serves, the original recordings were on RSO (Robert Stigwood, the label with the large pig for a logo, and known for some of the scuzziest recordings out there). Maybe SACD can bring new life to Star Wars, but I'm not holding my breath.
