Star Wars Trilogy: The Original Soundtrack Anthology is a quadruple-CD compilation released on November 23, 1993 by Arista Records. It contains all three soundtracks from the original Star Wars trilogy: Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi. The sound is cleaned up from the original soundtrack releases. The fourth disc contains outtakes, alternate and expanded cues, and never-before-released tracks. The colorful booklet touches upon all facets of John Williams's music with extensive and in-depth examination of Williams's compositions, including comparisons between the soundtrack recordings and their film counterparts.
