AllMusic Review by

During the Jabba the Hutt sequence of Return of the Jedi, a band -- apparently called the Max Rebo Band -- plays for Jabba's amusement. In the original version of the film, it was a short song that was interrupted halfway through. In the expanded special edition, the song was still interrupted, yet it was much longer -- in fact, it was completely rewritten. Now the song was some sort of horrible, slickly produced blues with an annoying melody and doubly annoying vocals. Star Wars: The Max Rebo Band is a single that contains the song that was in Return of the Jedi: The Special Edition, released for the first time in its full, unedited form. Only Star Wars completists will need this, because any other listener -- including fans of the original version of the film -- will be violently irritated by this astoundingly atrocious song.
