Dig Out Your Walkman – GotG Awesome Mix Vol. 1 Is Coming To Cassette Tape


The Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix Vol. 1 spent two weeks at the top of the Billboard 200 chart and is currently the 10th largest selling album of 2014. You’ve been able to buy the digital album, the CD, vinyl and even a “Deluxe Edition,” but so far, no actual cassette like the mix tape in the film.

But guess what? That’s about to change.

Marvel and Hollywood Records announced that a limited edition The Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix Vol. 1 Soundtrack will be finally issued on cassette, and will be made available only to independent retailers partnered with Record Store Day. The cassette, which is the first audio cassette Disney has released since 2003, will only be available until December 31, or until supplies last. (It’s unclear how many copies Disney will print.)

The album also features classic mix tape cover art, and by that I mean hand-written track listing in blue pen:


Just for reference, here’s the track list for the mix:

  1. Blue Swede – “Hooked on a Feeling”
  2. Raspberries – “Go All the Way”
  3. Norman Greenbaum – “Spirit in the Sky”
  4. David Bowie – “Moonage Daydream”
  5. Elvin Bishop – “Fooled Around and Fell in Love”
  6. 10cc – “I’m Not in Love”
  7. Jackson 5 – “I Want You Back”
  8. Redbone – “Come and Get Your Love”
  9. The Runaways – “Cherry Bomb”
  10. Rupert Holmes – “Escape (the Pina Colada Song)”
  11. The Five Stairsteps – “O-O-H Child”
  12. Marvin Gaye/Tammi Terrell – “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough”

The Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix Vol. 1 hits stores November 17 (just in time for Black Friday), and preceded the DVD release of the film on December 9.
