What just happened to the Star Wars soundtracks?!

Okay, so if any of you are frequent listeners to the scores of john Williams, you may find it interesting to note that the soundtracks to the Star Wars film have just undergone some sort of redo on Spotify. The expanded versions of the soundtracks no longer show up when you do a search. Instead they have been replaced by what appear to be re-issues (2017) of the original double-LP versions of the scores, with truncated cues and nowhere near all of them. Weird thing is, I can still find the previous expanded versions via my previously-existing playlist of them, but the song selection has been whittled in half. That to say, half the songs are greyed out, and give the ol' "This track cannot be played" message.

 

Oh well, it was fun while it lasted.

I noticed the same thing! I was really upset about this and was scouring the internet for a solution but came up empty handed :/ The Battle of Endor will never be the same without Parts II and III. Little stuff like this makes me want to go back to Apple Music..

It makes me glad I have the CD's, but still, I'll miss having them readily
available via the ol' internets. Oh well, first world problem, I suppose.

I just realized mysefl also. I was searching on my SW playlist and found there where only about 4 o 5 ROTJ themes on it. Quite disappointing. I'll keep the "Victory Celebration" from the old album (it's still avalaible) instead of "Ewok Celebration".

It's also kind of fun to have 'Lapti Nek' back again!

Yeah, that one is great. Makes me remember of ol' Battlefront 2.

I'm devastated; especially on May the 4th.. they took The Hologram/Binary Sunset! That's just low.
