BLUE!?!

Beyond Rumble, beyond Frenzy, beyond the archaicness of even the cassette tape as a recording medium!

Ah, but seriously, the vintage vinyl TF:TM soundtrack has been a holy grail of many a fan for many a decade, so this was arguably as overdue for honest-to-gosh reissue as the W-cassettes and Breast Force.

Arguably.

I still have the case, but no tape.
This will do nicely.

Checked out an auction today and they had a working (possibly 50's/60's era) record player "stereo".

If only I'd known ...

Vinyl records are coming back in style, an electronics chain here has had them for years. Yes, people still own record players, and modern ones are available to buy. Some people just like staying old-fashioned, like some Transformer fans only wanting vintage ;)

I second that notion. Sort of wild that the 86 soundtrack would get released on vinyl before Jablonsky's score would see a CD release. :lol:

very true. there are several actual "record" stores in my city, and if the masses werent aware many of todays artists still release their albums on vinyl. even some of the bigger stores like HMV have a vinyl section.

This is cool

BUT

Shouldn't this have been released in the 1980's cause this is out of place in modern times since vinal records are obsolete or near being obsolete :shock:

The good news is that it comes out on my birthday. Yay me?

Vinyl never died in punk rock and hardcore. It's made a HUGE comeback in the last 10 years though. Sure, it's not in every music store, but you can find it at any decent store. You can even find it at Best Buy, Hot Topic, and Target, which is all kind of weird. I have 2 turntables and a small collection of vinyl. I'd rather have things on CD but will buy vinyl if that's the only way it's going to be released.

I never found this one on CD but I have it on cassette still. It was the first cassette I had as a kid.

Also, weirdly enough, cassettes are making a comeback lately. No thank you.

What about 8-tracks? When my wife and I were dating she played a vintage Star Wars one for me, my first exposure to media before my time. It broke :oops:

Checked the link for availability. Only available in Europe at the moment (where vinyl has never died).
These are gonna be an expensive import.

Jelze, you mind picking one up for me? :grin:

Vinyl offers the BEST sound quality as it's a direct impression of the sound wave.

CD's and MP3's, even lossless ones still don't have the quality that vinyl does as quality gets lost in the conversion.

So yes, there is a very large niche market out there for vinyl and you have better chance of finding record players in electronic stores than you do cassette players or even discmans.

Burn is right. A good needle and great speakers, it's like being there.
