Return of the Jedi time!
[b]Vadar Contacts Luke (With Insert)[b]
You will notice if you line up the SE track with the deleted scene, that it doesn’t line up, this is due to microedits (6:08-6:12 is crossfaded out in the Blu-ray Deleted Scene) but also due to the fact that there is an insert added in (5:15-5:42). My theory is that the cut we see in the Blu-Ray scene is a shortened cut, and that this insert was written to cover it, but Lucas/Marquand decided to use the original cue cut down.
[b] The Iron Door/To Jabba’s Throne[/b]
I had a tough time lining these up, previous attempts at this placed “The Iron Door” over the droid sentry stuff and “To Jabba’s Throne” over R2 bumping into the Gamorrean, However that didn’t sit right with me, for three reasons:
#1 The titles of those cues didn’t match the placement, the title “The Iron Door” could have theoretically indicated Threepio and R2 trying to get inside the door, but the title “To Jabba’s Throne” didn’t really match anything that was going on in that part of his video.
#2 In the 1997 issue of the Film Score Monthly magazine Michael Matessino stated that the cues covered the opening of the door and for the reception of the droids by Bib Fortuna.
#3 It seemed odd to me that Williams would score that droid moment with dissonant music, as it seems more of a muted comedic bit, and the big fanfare seemed like it was too dramatic to cover anything other than a scene change.
[B]The Big Thaw (Original Version)[/B]
[B]A Strange Visitor[/B]
[B]Fight in the Dungeon (with deleted footage)[/B]
This one was a PAIN! I don’t really know if I got it correct, it seems like Williams scored a cut in between the one in the final film, and the one in the Rinzler eBook material.
[B]The Sarlacc Pit/Jabba’s End[/B]

This one is probably incorrect.
[B]The Emperor (Original Version)[/B]
[B]Yoda’s Scene (Restored Opening)[/B]
[B]Luke and Ben[/B]
[B]Enter the Ewok - More Trouble (Original Version)[/B]
This has the original version of Vader and Palpatine’s conversation, the film and 1997 SE soundtrack uses an insert at 6:30-6:47 to shift the Emperor’s Theme earlier and replace part of the eerie quiet section.
[B]Using the Force[/B]
This is my attempt at recreating the original edit, since I had no real info to go on (except that there is footage of R2 in the background free of his bonds long before the Ewoks actually release him), I basically ended up just recutting the scene into a way that seemed to make some kind of sense.
