You’ve heard of The Star Wars Holiday Special, and maybe Star Wars and Other Galactic Funk, but have you ever heard Living in These Star Wars by The Rebel Force Band? No? Well brace yourself.
This unlicensed 1977 homage to Star Wars is one of those rare gems known mostly to hardcore Star Wars audiophiles, noteworthy for its sincere (although disastrous) attempt to honor the first film in song. checkthecoolwax.com now has the full album available for download, which is pretty slow, but definitely worth the wait.
