Star Wars: A New Hope: 2LP Gold Vinyl

To be honest, it’s getting quite tricky to keep up with all the Star Wars related vinyl, with different labels releasing different coloured vinyl, picture discs and the like. Here is the latest; Sony Classical are issuing a double GOLD vinyl edition of John Williams‘ original score from the original movie, that is Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.

At least this limited edition is relatively affordable. At the time of writing it’s less than £22 in the UK which is decent for a double gatefold coloured vinyl. Put it this way, that’s about £100 cheaper than Friday Music’s 3LP blue vinyl of David Bowie‘s A Reality Tour!

This Star Wars gold 2LP vinyl edition is out on 3 June 2016.

    The pre-order for Return of the Jedi is under £18!, might be worth a long term pre-order.

    However, The Empire strikes back, arguably the best due to the Imperial March, is nearer £35.

    • Will says:

      Empire is now down to £21.99 (19/04/16) pre-order guarantee to lock in now and it may drop to the same as Jedi at £17.50ish?? who knows :-)

    thing is, 20th Century Fox records were coloured vinyl if you put them up to the light – do it with any 70s PYE or Buddah releases too. A sort of purpley bruised brown

  3. baward says:

    I think that translucent vinyl thing was pretty widespread in the 70’s, as wadey said. DJM Records Elton releases all seem to have been like that. I see auctions on a well-known auction site describing records like this as being ‘coloured vinyl’ which is stretching the facts a bit!

    Tempting as a replacement for my beat up second hand copy (although that does have the poster). May also order Jefi as it’s the only original trilogy soundtrack oven ever owned on vinyl.

  5. Derek T. says:

    70’s DJM, 20th Century and Buddah records were all pressed by Pye. So there’s a reason they’re all the same type of vinyl. I agree that describing these as ‘coloured vinyl’ is pushing it. Have also seen them described as ‘secret coloured vinyl’. Oh, please.

    Oh my childhood……I may weep

  7. Dave says:

    I’m so desensitized from all the Star Wars crud out there that even the music gives me a sense of ennui… Okay, I’ll buy it. :-)
