ABOUT THE DISC & RECORDINGS:

This 1988 release was the first time the soundtrack was released on CD. And the first time the songs were presented in stereo, as performed in the film. To date, the original stereo pre-recording masters do not exist, but when the film was restored in 1983 the complete stereo film soundtrack was found. This enabled the CD makers to produce the CD in stereo, as well as include the "Overture" for the first time.

This CD release would be the only Star soundtrack until an expanded edition was released in 2004.
