Well after reading about this first thing this morning, I couldn’t wait to long to tell everyone about it. Peter Quill’s Awesome Mix Vol 1 from the Guardians of the Galaxy smash hit movie will be released on actual cassette. I have had the digital version since first seeing the movie and it has to be one of the best soundtracks ever.
The cassette will be the first cassette released form the studio in over a decade and will be designed to look just like the one Star Lord had in his Walkman.
The cassette will be released shortly before the Dec 9th DVD/Blu Ray releases. It will be sold through independent record stores that participate in Record Store Day, no actual numbers of cassettes has been expressed as of yet.
Here is the track list for the cassette:
SIDE ONE: 1. “Hooked on a Feeling” Blue Swede 2. “Go All the Way” Raspberries 3. “Spirit in the Sky” Norman Greenbaum (not featured in the film) 4. “Moonage Daydream” David Bowie 5. “Fooled Around and Fell in Love” Elvin Bishop 6. “I Want You Back” Jackson 5 SIDE TWO 1. “I’m Not In Love” 10cc 2. “Come and Get Your Love” Redbone 3. “Cherry Bomb” The Runaways 4. “Escape (The Pina Colada Song)” Rupert Holmes 5. “O-O-H Child” The Five Stairsteps 6. “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell
Definitely to break out the Ol’ Walkman or better yet get out the Boom Box, you’ll want it to be loud!!
