    Whoa. Have any of you ever listened to the "Binary Sunset Alternate" track on the ANH 1st CD? No, I mean REALLY listened. Like listend for 5 minutes or so after the Binary Sunset track ends. Well, if you do (as I accidentally found out), you'll hear out of the blue: "Take 16" then the Star Wars opening theme will play. And then, after THAT ends, you'll hear "Take 17", and the same thing will happen up to "take 18", then the track ends. Well, I read about it in the little booklet that came with the CD (that I dearly cherish) and it turns out that the "Take 16" is *THE* first EVER recording of the Star Wars theme! Pretty cool!

    Now, if you look at the time for the "Binary Sunset Alternate" track in the booklet, it'l say that the track is only like 5 minutes long or so. BUT, if you do as I did and put it in your computer, it'll say the REAL time of 15 minutes!

    So, go do it! Listen to the FIRST EVER recording of the Star Wars Main Theme! Pop the CD in your computer (so you can skip ahead faster) and enjoy your state of bliss!

    Glad ta share it with you all!

    Yep, I've listened to the early takes of the 'Main Theme' a few times on the ANH:SE CD. Pretty cool bonus, though listening to the theme over and over again with only slight variations can get a bit tiring.

    Yeah, but not listening to the Star Wars Main Title's first 2-3 seconds over and over. It's pretty cool. It goes:

    BBBRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!
    BBBRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!
    BBBRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!
    BBBRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!
    BBBRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!
    BBBRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!
    BBBRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!
    BBBRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!
    BBBRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!

    I just listened to it today. I don't think I've ever heard the Star Wars theme so many times in only a few minutes before.

    I've known about this for a while, but I still enjoy listening to the Main Theme again and again and again...
