well, along with everyone else, I can only add my congratulations for this fine and perfectly executed project- i am in totally in awe!
i am a newbie to this forum and kind of stumbled across it. like many of you, I grew up with the records of SOSW and SOETB and knew them word for word- in the case of Star Wars, it was the only way I knew the film (along with Storybooks etc) as I was too young when the movie was released, and had to wait until '82 when it was premiered on TV (complete with adverts every 20 mins!).
A couple of weeks ago, I dug the LPs out (I couldn't ever bear to part with them) and I was going to transfer them onto CD and clean them up, but I thought I might just check the web first to see if anyone had already done it and save me the work. Of course they had, and, ahem, to paraphrase, "that's how I came to be in your service, if you take my meaning"...
Having the LPs, and before the days of video, I was the envy of all my school mates; but if only we could have dreamt of something like this! Great touch with adding the read along book on ESB- being an avid collector from an early age, I had those too, and still have the books (although the tapes have long gone). Things have come full circle; like someone else on this forum, my little 3 year old girl is getting into SW (again, because of the Princess), and we sat and read along with my original book and the audio on the DVD! Fantastic!
can't wait for SOROTJ- I never got hold of it over here in the UK, but have recently DL the audio and had a listen. the narration is a but cheesy and not in the same class of Roscoe or Malachi, but great fun all the same.
one last point- anyone looking to do the same for the Raiders and Indy Temple of Doom story LPs? again, I grew up with these and they'll be indelibly imprinted in the memory! The Raiders LP was a little different as it had no narration, and it even won a Grammy for best Spoken word record at the time. Interestingly, the Indy LP sounds like it has the same narrator as ROTJ (Chuck Riley). would love to hear if anything like this is planned
