The Story of Star Wars Album

Story of Star Wars LP

One of my favorite Star Wars items from childhood was “The Story Of Star Wars” on cassette. Featuring music, sound effects and actual dialogue from the film, this was my way of being able to relive Star Wars in the days before home video. I carried this cassette around with me everywhere I went. To this day, I can quote the entire “Star Wars” film from memory, a talent that was largely gleaned from the many hours spent listening to this recording.

Released in 1977, this 50 minute abridgement of “Star Wars” was narrated by Roscoe Lee Browne. In an era where many “Story Of…” records were produced for hit films, his deep baritone voice lent the story a sense of gravitas that was seldom heard in similar recordings for other films.

Full of Sith Story of Star Wars

Thanks to the fantastic Full of Sith podcast, I was recently able to relive this wonderful recording from the days of my youth in its entirety. Listening to the recording as an adult has allowed me to appreciate the production values that went into the making of “The Story Of Star Wars.”
