With Guardians of the Galaxy grossing more than $730 million worldwide, it’s clear that quite a few of you out there came and got your love. Although we came for Chris Pratt’s rippling abs, the exceedingly charismatic cast, the novelty of a machine gun-toting raccoon riding a giant tree, and interstellar action, we stayed for the incredible soundtrack, which curated some of the catchiest tunes of the 1970s into one delightful throwback mixtape. Now, you can experience the aural odyssey of the Awesome Mix, Vol. 1 just like Star-Lord did: in cassette tape form!
According to Billboard, the soundtrack, which is already available on vinyl and CD, will be available as a cassette tape as well on November 17. This is great news for people looking to buy gifts for their comic book-loving friends who also happen to own really shitty cars. In all seriousness, it’s a nice homage to the James Gunn-directed film that will make a marvelous companion piece to your officially licensed Baby Dancing Groot toy this holiday season. Seeing as you have just under a month until this mixtape drops, you’d better start scouring the web for a vintage Walkman if you want to get the full effect. Note: Infinity Stone sold separately.
