Meco - Star Wars and Other Galactic Funk [1977]



Fuck me, this is awesome.
As a Star Wars fan and a disco fan, one would've assumed this would've crossed my path before this morning.
In a nutshell, this is disco renditions of the soundtrack to A New Hope. And not just the main theme, but most every section of John Williams' Wagnerian score is here (and funky!).
Killer bass lines, tight drumming, and R2D2 sounds made on a Buchla Box by one of the early synth masters (Suzanne Ciani, look her up!) makes this something you need.

DISCO'S NOT DEAD

    Thank you! I got.this on cassette in 1977-78 along with the original soundtrack. But this was the one me and my brother would always play. It's been at least twentyfive years since I last heard its awesomeness. Thank you again!
