Mondo Releasing ‘Back to the Future’ Trilogy Score as Limited Edition Vinyl Box Set
The future has arrived. Well, almost.
October 21, 2015 is almost here, bringing us closer to the destination date Marty McFly traveled to in 1989's Back to the Future II. So far a lot from the Robert Zemeckis classic has already come true. We have hoverboards (kinda), we're obsessed with 3D and sequels, we got a trailer for Jaws 19 and Pepsi is releasing futuristic bottles. But there's still one thing we've never had: the original Back to the Future trilogy film scores available in a vinyl box set. Thanks to Mondo, all of our futuristic dreams will now come true.
The online store and art gallery is releasing Alan Silvestri's score on vinyl for the very first time with collectible packaging by DKNG studios and original album artwork by artist Matt Taylor. Previously, Taylor designed screen prints for the first two films and is now releasing his artwork for Back to the Future III as a part of the box set. The limited edition set will also include liner notes from screenwriter Bob Gale looking back on the creation of Silvestri's score. In one excerpt, Gale recalls the moment Steven Spielberg first heard and became a fan of the score during the Clock Tower sequence.
The full box set, priced at $105, includes six LPs pressed on 180 Gram colored vinyl, each one inside a deluxe gatefold jacket in a hardshell slipcase. The set also includes unreleased tracks from the film's sequels. Check out photos of the box set and individual album artwork below, which is available on Oct. 21:
