David Collins returns to provide expert analysis of the rich soundtrack for Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back.  For this volume, we listen closely to music composed by Williams for some sequences early in the film on the planet Hoth, but were never used.  Then we hear audio from the film with the music placed where it was originally intended in a "What If"-type scenario.  Plus, we study a motif that could be considered as a mini-theme for Boba Fett and much more!
