Jurassic Park Soundtrack Vinyl

Hold onto your butts! This looks amazing and I'm sure it sounds even better. Mondo has announced and revealed photos of their upcoming Jurassic Park soundtrack vinyl release. Yes, the iconic John Williams score to the seminal sci-fi classic Jurassic Park is getting the vinyl treatment, pressed on 180 gram vinyl as 2x LPs. The soundtrack has been remastered for vinyl and will be printed with gorgeous artwork on two packaging variations, one from artist JC Richard and a limited edition vinyl from artist Dan McCarthy. Both are, my opinion, must haves. Especially because this happens to be one of my all-time favorite scores.

Here's a look at the packaging and vinyl art for Mondo's remastered JP soundtrack, which will be sold at MondoTees.com starting June 11th. Up first, it's "Version A" with art by JC Richard and 2XLP 180 gram black vinyl "with randomly inserted Dilophosaurus variant" for a cost of only $35. Take a closer look below:

There's nothing more for me to say except - I cannot wait to own this. John Williams' Jurassic Park score is, truly, one of my all-time favorites. It was one of the first soundtracks I ever bought and one that I've listened to consistently for years. Mondo has been selling movie nerds very hard on these vinyl releases, and I think I'm finally going to cave. "There are few films where the experience of watching the film is matched only by experience of listening to it, and Jurassic Park is one of those rare films," said Mondo Creative Director Justin Ishmael. Agreed. The Jurassic Park vinyl soundtrack continues Mondo's commitment to "crafting beautiful packaging for scores they love and adds to an impressive collection that now includes" Poltergeist, Oblivion, Halloween, Drive, The Omen, Coraline, Paranorman and more on the way for 2014. Yes, please.

    Who the heck still listens to vinyl? Is this some kinda joke?

      No. And lots of people do! Many still believe vinyl produces the best sound quality out of anything. Mondo prints vinyl of their favorite soundtracks because they want to, because they can, for no other reason besides to honor the best. It's a collector's item for the few people who are audiophiles+cinephiles and love collecting vinyl that has stunning art printed on it. I don't even own a record player and I'm still buying these.

      Vinyl is the only physical music format that is increasing in sales.

    I've been downloading all my music for give or take 15 years. You can download anything and have it in CD quality. If I'm going to be spending money, it's for something special and that usually means it's on vinyl.
