Notes

Official soundtrack of the third (in order of release) film in the Star Wars series, originally released by RSO Records in 1983.

Originally released worldwide as a single LP ("A New Hope" was released as a double LP and "The Empire Strikes Back" was a double LP for North America and Japan, one single LP for the rest of the world), even though its complete score was the longest of the original trilogy (2:28:04). As a result of this marketing decision many tracks remained unavailable until the release of the 1993 4-CD set The Original Soundtrack Anthology.

The (supposedly) entire, remastered score was released in 1997 by RCA Victor to coincide with the "Special Edition" re-release of the film trilogy. It was the only soundtrack in the series that had its musical content altered for the Special Edition: tracks "Lapti Nek" (with Sy Snootles on vocals) and "Ewok Celebration" were respectively replaced with "Jedi Rocks" (now also featuring Joh Yowza, Rystáll Sant, Greeata and Lyn Me on vocals) and the much happier "Victory Celebration". This 2-CD set was re-released in 2004, 2015, and 2016 by Sony Classical with different artwork.

In 2016, the original 1983 album was reissued on vinyl, including full artwork reproduction. It was also released on hi-res digital. In 2017, it was reissued again, on Walt Disney Records for the first time, in standard-res digital only.

A remastered version of the soundtrack was released by Walt Disney Records on May 4, 2018. This remaster was newly assembled from the highest-quality tapes available, rather than sourced from the existing 1983 album masters.
