Star Wars 30th Anniversary Special - part 8
Another option for reliving a movie experience back in the pre-VCR days was the story record. Many movies, tv series and comic books had audio stories that were recorded onto lps (long playing records for you young'ns). "Star Wars" was no exception. There were also read along records, where an illustrated booklet was included so the listener could read along and see some visuals.
While I was unable to track down "The Story of Star Wars" itself (if anyone has a copy on CD or as an mp3, I'd love to have it), the fine folks at Check the Cool Wax
have a number of the shorter "Star Wars" story records for download.
