Undoubtedly, one of the best things about Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy was its soundtrack. Director James Gunn handpicked a number of tracks that helped color the film and ground it with an emotional center through Peter Quill’s childhood, and cumulatively they result in one of the best popular music movie soundtracks in years. Fittingly, the good folks at Mondo have announced that they will be putting the Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack out on vinyl in a deluxe packaging that comes pressed on 180 Gram Purple Infinity Stone-colored vinyl, with cover artwork from Tyler Stout. Moreover, each record comes with one of nine randomly inserted screen-printed handbills featuring various characters from the film. Needless to say, this would make a swell addition to any record collection and could also make for a nice Christmas present if you want to start your holiday shopping early.
