COMING SOON: We're excited to announce seven amazing soundtrack LPs on Record Store Day 2021’s newly announced release dates: The Matrix will be released as a deluxe 3-LP set, Village of the Damned will be released as a deluxe-edition double LP, The Iron Giant and The Goonies will get the picture disc treatment, and Shrek, Ghost of Mars, and Aliens will be released as limited-edition color LPs. This annual celebration will be held through a series of Record Store Day drops, which will occur on June 12th and July 17th. Visit recordstoreday.com to locate your local independent retailer.


THE MATRIX: The Complete Edition – Don Davis (3-LP Set) – *RELEASE DATE: JUNE 12th*
The science-fiction masterpiece has captured the imagination of another generation with news of a new Matrix film in production. This deluxe 3-LP set is pressed on Glitter-Infused Green vinyl, expanded to 44 tracks, and housed in a stunning new art design. Also included are classic film stills and an exclusive new interview with composer Don Davis.


THE GOONIES – David Grusin (Picture Disc) – *RELEASE DATE: JUNE 12TH*
In celebration of the 35th anniversary of The Goonies, the beloved soundtrack by Dave Grusin will be released on an LP picture disc for the first time ever! The special release features the album cover on side A and the infamous One-Eyed Willie on side B. The track listing to this abbreviated single-disc version of the original score was personally selected and assembled by Grusin himself.


VILLAGE OF THE DAMNED: The Deluxe Edition – John Carpenter & Dave Davies (2-LP Set) – *RELEASE DATE: JUNE 12TH*
The Deluxe Edition for Village of the Damned presents the full score as heard in the film for the first time, a far more complete presentation than the 1995 Original Soundtrack which was not only truncated but made of an entirely separate mix that wasn’t featured in the film. The set does, however, include the track “Midwich Shuffle,” a fun number which was created specifically for the 1995 soundtrack, despite never actually appearing in the film. Interest in John Carpenter’s original film scores has never been higher, and his collaboration with Dave Davies of the Kinks is a one-of-a-kind moment in cinematic music history. The album includes all-new original art direction with new notes and classic film stills and comes pressed on Orange Haze vinyl.


SHREK – Harry Gregson-Williams & John Powell (Limited-Edition Color LP) – *RELEASE DATE: JUNE 12TH*
Shrek is the second most successful animated franchise in history and celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2021. Harry Gregson-Williams and John Powell are two of the most prominent composers working on animated features today, and they joined forces to create a score that is still as fun and memorable as it was when it was first released. The LP will be released on Neon Green vinyl, making it a standout addition to any record lover’s collection.


THE IRON GIANT – Michael Kamen (Picture Disc) – *RELEASE DATE: JULY 17TH*
This first-ever picture disc of this heartwarming 1999 animated film celebrates The Robot, his best friend, Hogarth, and a cast of characters. The music is by Academy Award®-nominated composer Michael Kamen (Lethal Weapon, Die Hard), who was well-known for his work with Eric Clapton, Metallica and Pink Floyd, in addition to his brilliant theatrical scores.


GHOST OF MARS – John Carpenter (Limited-Edition Color LP) – *RELEASE DATE: JULY 17TH*
In celebration of Ghost of Mars’ 20th anniversary, the epic soundtrack will be released on “Red Planet” vinyl. John Carpenter recruited an unbelievable cast of musicians to record the soundtrack to this sci-fi horror film, starring Ice Cube and Natasha Henstridge. Among the featured players are GRAMMY®-winning musician Steve Vai, most of the heavy metal band Anthrax (including Scott Ian), Elliot Eason of the rock band The Cars, Buckethead of Guns N’ Roses, and Robin Finck of Nine Inch Nails and Guns N’ Roses. This soundtrack is apocalyptic and an important mark in John Carpenter’s unparalleled career as a director and composer.


ALIENS: 35th Anniversary Edition – James Horner (Limited-Edition Color LP) – *RELEASE DATE: JULY 17TH*
Aliens is regarded as one of the greatest science fiction franchises of all-time. In honor of its 35th anniversary, the long out-of-print original soundtrack gets a fresh reboot on Acid-Blood Yellow-Green vinyl. The soundtrack is scored by the great Academy Award®-winning composer James Horner (Titanic, Avatar, Beautiful Mind). The LP features the original Sigourney Weaver key art and original film stills.

The complete version of The Matrix needs to be on CD in the next Club batch. I'm sick of this hipster bullshit.

Curious if Aliens is the '86 vinyl mastering or if it's been redone.

Either way I'll probably pick it up, and then not throw it like a frisbee, while not being a hipster.
I will, however, spare a thought for all the people on here determined to die on this little ol' hill.

Hmmm good point, it will be curious to see how the audio sounds on Aliens. Hopefully it has the correct Ripley's Rescue and not the goofy sounding version from the Deluxe Edition!


I am mostly curious about which tracks Grusin selected for his new 40 minute The Goonies single-LP program. It's like he's finally getting to craft an OST album 35 years after the fact!


And of course I'm hopeful Varese will release the new Complete version of The Matrix on CD later in the year.

Zip it ace! Why do you even care that vinyl is alive and well? Do you even go to Record Stores?
You are your like are a bunch of myopic fools. Vinyl has always been here and always will be. Accept the truth. This crap sickens me to no end.

IT'S EFFING RECORD STORE DAY! Something you know nothing about.

As, I have stated before. So called "hipsters" are not the majority of buyers. It is the teenagers, "college kids" and people who have always loved vinyl. My 57 yo ass included. If it was not for vinyl film music in physical format would die out. So, keep your self-righteous and ignorant comments off this board.

Again, tell us why you even make such a statement.

Go get'em VARESE! Keep on keeping on! You have my full support.

And I'm sick of you. Get bent.
Define "hipster" in this context- genius who never goes to actual Record Stores

I really don't get this attitude. Don't like it, don't buy it. Seems pretty simple to me

It's been discussed a million times. (1) Scores are being released (and expanded) on vinyl instead of CD. (2) It takes time, money and resources away from new CD releases. Disney's Legacy Collection appears all but dead. There were so many important scores that needed premier releases or expansion. But if this is where these companies are making their money that's capitalism for ya!

As a big fan of ALIENS, I would actually have loved to own that green vinyl thingie. Something for my shelf. And I actually DO own a turntable. Although listening-wise, I'm obviously more than content with my old, original Varese CD release.

I'll never get the discussions about vinyl...

Times change, formats change. Vinyl will survive the CD. I know bands/label owners that don't do CDs anymore - more of them every day.

I started buying LPs in the late 70s and started upgrading to CD in 1985. Now it seems that CDs have run their course and LPs are coming back. And why not? If you have a good setup vinyl can actually sound better. Vinyl is usually mastered at 24 bit (if done rightly) and CD only has 16 bit - so if mastering and pressing are top notch, it'll sound brilliant.

The big thing for me is that a download code is included. That way, you can enjoy the music in any way (analogue or digitally) you please and can read/look at the full-size record artwork.

And, mind you, no CD rot :-)

I'm still buying both formats, i *do* need physical releases!

Oh, btw, a friend of mine is just about to release a double LP. The manufacturing costs for a double LP, full color gatefold sleeve, 180 gram vinyl is about 4'800.-- Euros (roughly $6'000.-- i assume) for an edition of 300. Not including mastering, graphic design and the like. At least here in Europe that's about the cost of the game. Keep that in mind when talking about the pricing for LPs...

Best,
Burnie

Never liked vinyls but I have no problem with vinyl releases as long as they are not ar the expense of CD releases. What annoys me is when a new release is vinyl and download only without a CD release.

(But I have to admit this resurgence of vinyl is beyond me... The most problematic and vulnerable format ever.)

That's the way the world is moving. CDs are dead. Either stream or get the vinyl.

But vinyls were also dead once, weren't they? So I keep hoping of a future CD resurgence.
