I wanted to get some opinions on the the best way to watch the original trilogy and which cut/format is preferred for listening to the soundtrack.
From doing some searching, it seems that the 1993 Definitive Edition Laserdisc is the most favored mix of print quality/content/availability. I like the recent blu-rays (the changes don't bother me too much) and the 2 disc w/ "original" version DVDs, but I've never really investigated some of the more obscure formats. I would be happy to buy a LD player if the LD version was considerably better.
Also...the soundtrack. I prefer the original vinyl mass-produced soundtrack. Again though, is there a foreign release that has extra stuff? Does reel-to-reel sound better than the vinyl. Does the CD box set capture the "warmth" of the original vinyl? I'd like to know how you guys prefer to listen.
Any thoughts you guys have would be interesting to hear.
