    Doesn't seem to be a CD option on Amazon, at least not in the UK. Must be a digital only release.

    It is a quality release though, so comprehensive. The only things that remain exclusive to the original album are an alt ending to Marauder's Arrive, the 'high-pitched' Chicken in the Pot, and a short alternate segment from Good Thing Listening You Were Listening.

    Coming back to this score recently, and I still really love it. Train Fight in particular might be my favourite piece of Star Wars music composed in the last decade, from that soothing opening merging Han, Beckett, and Chewie's themes, the soaring cue for Val's zipline, the pulse-pounding action, the reprise of the ANH Imperial theme. Combined with Marauder's Arrive (the cues are presented as one in the deluxe version) and you have the striking choir for Enfys Nest, and even more great variants of the themes.

    And for a minor highlight, I love this upbeat version of Chewie's theme for when he comes to back to rescue Han on Kessel, it captures that fun uplifting energy so well:
