Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is the official soundtrack album of the film Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace. The album contains the score for the film and is available in three formats: a 2CD "Ultimate Edition" (November 14, 2000) presenting the score mostly as heard in the film--not how the score was recorded or how it was intended, and the original 1 Disk Album (May 4, 1999), presenting the score more as a concert work than as the film score. Also for a limited time, the 1 disk album was available on a two disk vinyl LP set through specialized retailers such as Star Wars Insider.
