'Star Wars: Episode I' Score Getting a Vinyl Release for Some Reason
In case you don't have any musically inclined or hipster friends, vinyl records are all the rage right now. With a richer sound and vintage style, vinyl has become a popular format again for people who love music. And while some of my favorite music comes in the form of motion picture scores, I have to admit that I'm a little shocked and confused by a certain blockbuster sci-fi film score getting a limited edition vinyl release. Soundtrack.net (via The Playlist) has some details on a double LP limited edition release of John Williams' Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace score, complete with special color versions. Look below!

These are just mock-ups so the actual records could look a little different. If you're looking for any of these color versions, there are only 2000 versions of each, so be sure to get them while you can. There will also be 50 limited bundle packages available with all colors/pressed versions, one random winner (which I assume means one random person who purchases the bundlge) will receive a test press version of the album, of which only 10 copies exist. I Am Shark is releasing the double LP with a ship date of March 4th listed, but that could be subject to change due to manufacturing delays. Stay tuned to their website for updates, and we'll keep you posted on the releases for Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith.
