Star Wars and Other Galactic Funk

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - JT Griffith
As a purist, Meco's Star Wars and Other Galactic Funk should be heard on its original vinyl, even if that means losing the two bonus tracks on the Hip-O CD, the "Star Wars Theme/Cantina Band 7 Radio Edit" and the "Star Wars Theme/Cantina Band 12 Disco Mix." This is not the music most people would listen to every day, so why not enjoy the experience. The LP's cover is large, and the two space travelers bumping bottoms is hilarious cheese.

Musically, the LP and the CD are identical with the exception of the bonus material. An interesting trivia bit is that John Williams supposedly did not know anything about disco when he returned from London. When he was asked to listen to Meco's version of his now famous recording, Williams was apprehensive. But, in the end, he credited Meco with helping bring symphonic music further into the mainstream. This important genre-busting album is most enjoyable in its original form. The "Title Theme" was a number one hit in 1977. Star Wars and Other Galactic Funk makes one of the best kids albums out there.
