    The Solo soundtrack is streaming on Spotify. I really am enjoying it. I love the nods to the Williams material too.

    I really liked the film as well. I saw it on Tuesday.

    I got a chance to listen to the Solo soundtrack this week and enjoyed it. As I expected, hearing the score on its own gave me more of an appreciation for it when I saw (& heard) the movie again yesterday.

    So...

    As this thread is zzzzz at the moment..

    I’m going to make a return of the Jedi cd.
    I’m using the original soundtrack album. What other tracks from the special edition should I add? I have the se scores on cd.

    Also.. do I keep Lapti Nek?

    Actually I could put 15 minutes more on a new hope and empire too...

    Both are 65 minutes. Cd is 80 minutes.

    Yes I still use CDs. Not always but I do use them in addition to iPod or iPhone.

    I think that original song is better than what replaces it in the SE, but I'm pretty agnostic on that one.

    But you must keep Yub Nub!

    What about the original music at Jabbas? The solo.

    If you like it, why not?

    But if you want strictly orchestral music, I don't think anyone would hold it against you for cutting it.

    I just have a soft spot for Yub Nub - to me, it's the most joyous sound in the universe!

    Were episodes 1-3 remastered by Sony?

    I saw that they have now been remastered by Disney along with 4-6.

    I may end up buying these if for nothing more than curiosity.

    I've only heard clips, but apparently the mixing is a little weird on these new Disney remasters, particularly on EMPIRE, where the L-R balance is also a little uneven.

    I read the other forum thread and saw the comments as well.

    I’ll still probably pick at least hope and empire up at some point.

    I had some problems with loading the digital files into iTunes. For some reason iTunes cuts off tracks at different point. It fills the space with silence.
    So I have to delete them out of iTunes and try to load / import them again. Silly.

    I just got empire and the other two ot ones yesterday! This far I’m impressed with the sound. I haven’t noticed any unevenness but I was listening in the car.

    I may also pick up the prequels as well. I have the original releases and picked up phantom expanded a while back too.

    Did anyone else pick up the Disney remasters?
