Orchestra – The London Symphony Orchestra. Now that the film mix was transferred properly, my advice is: stay with the John Neal album mix (2015 remaster, Ultimate Digital Collection) and wait for the complete film score (Eric Tomlinson mix) which will hopefully be released in the near future.

The score from The Empire Strikes Back, composed by John Williams, was recorded in eighteen sessions at Anvil Studios over three days in December 1979 and a further six days in January 1980 with Williams conducting the London Symphony Orchestra. Between Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back, Williams had also worked with the London Symphony Orchestra for the scores to the films The Fury, Superman and Dracula. The score earned another Academy Award nomination for Williams

The packaging is the same. The holo design on the discs are different. This one has the design of the Empire's emblem on it with Empire Strikes Back across the bottom,. When people say John Williams was at his very best, this is the very soundtrack they are referring to. The Empire Strikes Back, by and far, surpassed the original Star Wars when it came out and in the music is no exception. As said before John Williams wasn't just in his prime here, this was when he was at his best. The music still contained an innocence first heard in the original Star Wars, but with a darker, more serious undertone that befits the movie, for Luke Skywalker is no longer the dreamer, he's living the dream; off Tatooine, going to strange worlds, and finding adventure.
