Liner notes Brandon Wainerdi (Talking Bay 94)
Rpm 33 1/3
Vinyl weight 140 Gram

The history of Industrial Light & Magic, the foundational and legendary effects house, is at the center of this 6 part documentary series: how it continues to shape and revolutionize the industry, starting with how it was born from the needs of a little effects-heavy film from 1977 called Star Wars.

Grammy® and Emmy award winning composer James Newton Howard has never scored a Star Wars film (yet), but he and long-time collaborator, director Lawrence Kasdan (who himself wrote the legendary sequel The Empire Strikes Back) are perhaps the best duo to tackle the subject matter. Kasdan approaches candid and honest retrospectives from legends and titans like Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, James Cameron, Kathleen Kenedy, Phil Tippet, and so many more, while JNH's soundscape creates a jazzy, dream factory-like aura around the narrative - appropriate, as the imagery these wizards created are nothing short of magic.

This limited edition vinyl set features all new liner notes by Brandon Wainerdi (Talking Bay 94 Podcast) and is pressed on 140g Mondo exclusive Splatter vinyl (also available on 140g Black Vinyl) with package design by Mondo Senior Creative Director Mo Shafeek.
