As a Star Wars fan I probably should have known this but apparently Dave Greenslade scored the music for the band in the cantina scene in A New Hope.
 
Now everyone's going to tell me they knew this already. Wink

I also stick with the first 4 Greenslade albums.....I thought that music in the cantana scene was a bit silly.

Hmmm, not so sure about that.   Dave Lawson was a player during the recording, but I find no evidence Dave Greenslade composed the cut.   John Williams hired several musicians to help with the jazzy theme and Greenslade may've been part of that group, but nowhere have I found anything indicating DG wrote the piece.

"In Star Wars, Lawson can be heard playing the ARP 2600 to conjure the sounds of an electric tuba in the famous Tatooine cantina scene.[4]"

Doh, you're right, I misread the article in Prog magazine, they were talking about Lawson, not Greenslade. Embarrassed
I wasn't aware of that either, must have missed this little fact.

Of course it is silly, it is a comic scene. Even if it had been true that he wrote it, it would not be appropriate to compare it to the albums of Greenslade the band - apples and organges.
