- Limited edition of 1000 first pressings in kelly green/opaque cyan 4-way split vinyl
- First time ever as a standalone vinyl release
I Am Shark is excited to celebrate Star Wars Day with the announcement of the upcoming limited edition vinyl release of the Star Wars Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith original motion picture soundtrack. Available for the first time ever as a standalone vinyl record, the limited edition 1000 copy pressing keeps with I Am Shark’s variant color theme found on their previous Star Wars vinyl releases, and is available in the General Grievous variant, an alternating mix of transparent kelly green and intense opaque cyan that emulate the fearsome quadruple lightsaber wielding cyborg.
Opening up the 2xLP gatefold jacket reveals an ominous photo of the newly anointed Darth Vader and The Emperor looking out at the face at the growing Empire at the conclusion of Episode III. This beautiful edition is simply a must have for Star Wars fans, vinyl hounds, and collectors alike.
Originally released on CD alongside the movie in 2005, the Episode III: Revenge of the Sith soundtrack features a score by five-time Oscar winner John Williams, who is also the composer and conductor of the score for each film in the 9 – chapter Star Wars saga. The score found on the Episode III soundtrack is decidedly darker than previous Star Wars prequel soundtracks, as the musical themes match the growing darkness woven into the story and the galaxy as the Empire consolidates its power at the conclusion of the prequel trilogy. Many of the heroic, anthemic themes woven throughout Episode Three: Revenge of the Sith will nonetheless be very familiar to any fan of the series, from the “Imperial March” to the main theme.
