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:
Here's the "Version B" vinyl with art by Dan McCarthy, featuring 2XLP pressed on 180 gram amber vinyl.
Both versions sell for $35, with the second "Version B" limited to 1,000 copies. Here's the full vinyl tracklist:
01) Opening Titles
02) Theme From Jurassic Park
03) Incident At Isla Nublar
04) Journey To The Island
05) The Raptor Attack
06) Hatching Baby Raptor
07) Welcome to Jurassic Park
08) My Friend, The Brachiosaurus
09) Dennis Steals The Embryo
10) A Tree For My Bed
11) High-Wire Stunts
12) Remembering Petticoat Lane
13) Jurassic Park Gate
14) Eye To Eye
15) T-Rex Rescue & Finale
16) End Credits
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?

I do. I can't wait to own this. One of the best soundtracks ever produced. And the Drive soundtrack? Sign me up.

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.
