Christmas In The Stars

Here's the classic (?) Christmas In The Stars: STAR WARS Christmas Album. My neighbor had this on vinyl when it came out in 1980. This rip is from the 1996 CD release from Rhino. This album was produced by Meco Monardo, best known for his disco album Star Wars And Other Galactic Funk. It features the voice of Anthony Daniels as C-3PO and sound effects wizard Ben Burtt provides the sounds for R2-D2 and Chewbacca. The strangest thing about this album is that it features an 18-year-old Jon Bon Jovi (credited as John Bongiovi) fronting a high school choir on the song "R2-D2 We Wish You A Merry Christmas." Be warned -- this album is pretty cheesy.

TRACK LISTING --

1. Christmas In The Stars
2. Bells, Bells, Bells
3. The Odds Against Christmas
4. What Can You Get A Wookie For Christmas (When He Already Owns A Comb)
5. R2-D2 We Wish You A Merry Christmas
6. Sleigh Ride
7. Merry, Merry Christmas
8. A Christmas Sighting ('Twas The Night Before Christmas)
9. The Meaning Of Christmas

Can you please re-up this. I tried to download it and it said it was unavailable. I heard this is a 'classic' and would love to play it for my kids during the holidays.

Yes, I'm a huge Star Wars fan, lol, and these campy delights remind me of when I was young Landspeeder mechanic at Toshi Station!

Please send me an update, scott_spray@hotmail.com

BTW, this site is a mirror image of my 70's soul. We could easily be friends or brothers, seperated at birth of course.

I had this album on LP way back in the day and have been searching for a few years to get either the CD or mp3's to add to my Christmas music collection without spending $75+ for it. (I don't mind paying, but it shouldn't cost me an arm or a leg.)
THANK YOU!!!

That LP is probably still in my parents' front room closet. I should go fish it out.

Wow, thank you so much for making this available! My sister had this on cassette when I was younger and I could never decide if it was an offense against God or just hilariously awesome. I am so excited to hear it again!

I went looking for this album when my brother-in-law told me that the singer on track 5 in Jon Bon Jovi. He was working as a janitor at the Power Station recording studio where the album was recorded and they needed a male vocalist. Kinda funny...

Thanks for the rip.

FYI, the link above me, by "sexy", is an ad for Japanese Porn.

You're welcome Woodworker.

Unfortunately I've been getting some porn spam.

I'll delete it now.
