Hello all, I am new to the forum and one of the fans that cannot stand the new ewok celebration song in ep.6. I was wondering if anyone knows where I can find it to make it into a ring tone?

I dont think that the newer cd’s they sell includes yub nub anymore.

You should be able to find the original-original soundtrack CD (or LP) on ebay.

I'm not familiar with that cover art (is that mp3 artwork or something?)

I've never heard that abrupt ending before, either. :-? (Was that edited for mp3? Are they selling '83 tracks as mp3s now??)

I think that cover art may be for a fan made soundtrack. The soundtrack includes Jabba Sail barge music, the different celebration ending music etc....

The abrupt end of Ewok celebration sounds like a fan edit.

The same is found in the choral version. An edit has been made to have the Return Of The Jedi end title music. The original  version of this track was on the Star Wars Anthology CD box set, but for some reason they decided to put the end titles of The Empire Strikes Back afterward.

Thanks---it didn't seem too likely that the pre-SE music would be available anymore. I have the boxed set too and have always wondered why they did that with the ESB end titles on the ROTJ finale. :-/

Because the disc on which Yub Nub appears is a disc of extras, combining cues from all three films. The ESB take is the one from the film, not the one released on the album, hence its inclusion on disc four.

But why combine it with the ROTJ ewok/celebration music? Just to be able to squeeze both unreleased pieces onto the disc? (In which case I've answered my own question). ;-)

Yes.

Keep in mind that at the time, soundtrack albums weren't the archival-style presentations that we're used to today. They were abridged and re-arranged for listening purposes. The Anthology box set still reflected this approach, even as it added a treasure trove of additional music (and is still the best-sounding presentation of music from the trilogy on CD — the RCA/Sony Special Editions have awful sound on Empire and Jedi). Combining the celebration with the unreleased end credits on Empire was their solution for including a piece of music that would have an abrupt end, and one that would have an abrupt beginning without wasting too much disc space.

Thanks, it makes a lot more sense now. I love the Anthology boxed set, I remember the day I bought it at a Coconuts in NYC circa 1995. I had to order the set from them because the only one they had in stock had a slice in the box top where an employee had been careless with a box-cutter.

I like the RCA sets only for the additional unreleased tracks they provide, but the Anthology set will always be my favorite of the CD releases.

 Yeah, it's a great set. I always remember the first time I played the discs, it was like finding Alladin's cave.
