Peter “Star Lord” Quill is willing to risk his life for his friends, and…….a cassette mixtape.
The mix has been available in the real world in digital, CD, and record form, but soon you’ll be able to get your hands on Quill’s cassette tape. Marvel will be releasing a special version of the cassette to a select group of record stores shortly before the movie comes out on Blu-Ray and DVD on December 9th. (Just in time for X-Mas!)
“Awesome Mix Vol. 1.”will be available for independent retailers that participate in Record Store Day (a day celebrating vinyl records and limited edition records) This will be first music cassette released by the company since 2003. Disney hasn’t stated how many copies of the tape it will be producing.
The soundtrack includes many famous songs including Blue Swede’s infamous “Hooked on a Feeling,” used in the film’s trailers. I hope you still have a Walkman lying around or an old boom box that can play cassette tapes. Oh you threw those away? Don’t sweat it, the tape comes with a digital download of the 12-track album. 🙂
