GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY “Deluxe 2xLP” Vinyl Soundtrack
Hollywood Records 2xLP “Deluxe Vinyl Edition” release of both composer Tyler Bates’s original score AND the “Awesome Mix Vol.1” collection of songs from 2014’s smash hit superhero film Guardians of the Galaxy.
Release date: September 16, 2014.
Music plays a major role in Guardians of the Galaxy as the 1970s songs featured in the film are part of the storyline in a unique way.
Explaining how the songs come to play in the story, director James Gunn says, ‘One of the main story points in the movie is that Quill has this compilation tape (Awesome Mix #1) that he got from his mother before she died that she made for him. It was of songs that she loved, all songs from the 1970s, and that’s the only thing he has left of his mother and that’s the only thing he has left of his home on Earth. He uses that as a connection to his past and to the sadness that he feels of having left all that and lost all that.’
In addition to the songs composer Tyler Bates has produced what we here at Soundtracks on Vinyl think is the best-yet score to a Marvel movie, and this score is presented beautifully on vinyl.
Some people are calling this the greatest movie soundtrack ever released, and seriously, they may not to be too far wrong!
