This sound like a great idea.

The original soundtracks of the “Star Wars Episodes I-VI” movies are being reissued by Sony Classical in three new editions: “Star Wars: The Ultimate Vinyl Collection”; “Star Wars: The Ultimate Soundtrack Collection”; and “Star Wars: The Ultimate Digital Collection.”

Depending on your choice, the music will be available on LPs, CDS or hi-resolution download.

All of the musiv was composed by five-time Oscar-winning composer, John Williams, these unique collector's sets are being reissued after the latest chapter in the saga, “Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens,” opens in theaters.

All three of Sony Classical's new soundtrack editions will be released worldwide Jan. 8.

The vinyl set includes each of the six film soundtracks in gatefold sleeves faithfully replicating the original artwork. Audio was transferred from the original LP masters using the highest resolution and pressed with heavy 180 gram vinyl.

The six double-LP sets are presented in a black, soft-touch laminated slipcase with an embossed, hot silver foil “Star Wars” logo, which includes a digital download card for one complete box set of all six soundtracks.
