Mondo dropping collectible vinyl of ‘Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix Vol. 1’


Man! I don’t have a fucking record player! Which I know totally cuts me down like three-thousand points in some people’s eyes. SORRY BRO, I’M CYBERNETIC. I LISTEN TO MY DEATH METAL THROUGH A ZUNE I HAVE HAD IMPLANTED IN THE UPPER CORNERS OF MY ANUS. CO-ANUS-IAL CABLE. Oh God I hate myself. What the fuck am I even saying? Uh — right.

Anyways. Mondo is continuing to release dope-ass collectible comic book vinyls, this time with an Awesome Mix.

Hit the jump for the glorious artwork + details.

Comics Alliance:

It looks like the good folks over at Mondo have been on quite a tear lately when it comes to cornering the market on comic book themed vinyl records. Just a few months ago at San Diego’s Comic-Con International, they put out a limited edition Batman: The Animated Series soundtrack, and now, they’ve announced that they’re following that up with a collectible edition of the soundtrack to Guardians of the Galaxy.

If you’ve seen the movie — and let’s be real here, you have — you’ll probably recall that Star-Lord’s “Awesome Mix Vol. 1″ was not only a nice little plot point, but it gave the movie that extremely rare marriage of sci-fi adventure and ’70s funk that made for a pretty awesome time. Mondo’s version collects the full soundtrack, including David Bowie’s “Moonage Daydream,” Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell’s “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” and, of course, Blue Swede’s “Hooked On A Feeling,” pressed on 180 Gram Purple Infinity Stone colored vinyl and wrapped up in a screenprinted cover by artist Tyler Stout.

The record won’t be shipping until early next year, but you can pre-order it now at Mondo for $50. Personally, I’m going to hold off until they release it on cassette tape. I’m just a purist like that.

Awesome fucking Mix!
