This is the final VHS release of the original trilogy before the Special Editions in 1997 added digital "improvements".
Got for £3.50 in local charity shop.

I definitely agree that many of the changes in the “special editions” were terrible (i.e. the cringy CGI song number in Jabba’s palace) but I personally don’t think ALL the changes were bad, some were good, such as more of the Wampa.

@Sakura4anime25 Yeah the original x wing battle looks better too as the cgi is not really intrusive and adds a lot. I also like the Emperor change in Empire. Some of the changes really stick out though. Sadly we can't choose what bits to keep and what to get rid of. It's just nice to see the films how I first remember them.
