Buy Awesome Mix Vol. 1 from 'Guardians of the Galaxy' on Cassette
Hot on the heels of news that fans will be able to get a dancing Groot toy just in time for the holidays, another treat from Guardians of the Galaxy will be available for purchase this holiday season too. Besides the ragtag group of misfits that make up the titular cosmic crew from Marvel's successful flick, one of the biggest stars of the film is the classic pop rock soundtrack. And now you'll be able to own and listen to it exactly like Star-Lord would because Billboard reports you can buy Awesome Mix Vol. 1 on cassette tape beginning November 17th. So now that friend of yours with a shitty car will have great music. Look!
Here's Guardians of the Galaxy's Awesome Mix Vol. 1 in all its cassette glory (via Billboard):
UPDATE: Marvel has announced that the Awesome Mix Vol. 1 cassette will be available as part of the releases on this year's second Record Store Day on November 28th (yes, that's Black Friday). Here's an announcement video showing off the tape with information to help you find out where you can get one:
The tape will be an "RSD First" release, and will only be an exclusive through the end of the year, which means that it will likely be more readily available for purchase in 2015. It's not clear how many copies will be available at participating Record Store Day locations (and it's a crazy shopping day too), so keep checking with your local record stores or watch the RSD website for more information.
Guardians of the Galaxy is directed by James Gunn (Slither, Super). Brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits — Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Peter discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to join his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand. Marvel releases the film on Blu-Ray & DVD on December 9th.
