Space Jam Goes Vinyl for Record Store Day
It is time to add more vinyl to your collection. To celebrate Record Store Day 2017, the world will receive the second printing of the Space Jam soundtrack vinyl. This reprinting will be a complete remastered version. So, you will not have to pay the high Discogs prices for the 1996 LP release.
Space Jam for The Uninitiated
Space Jam is a wonderful way to past the time. It is a basketball film with Looney Tunes characters. So, your interest in the film will vary based on how much you love those. Still, it is worth the watch when you have a chance.
It is a live-action / animated hybrid film that stars Michael Jordan and a host of other NBA stars from the 1990s as they team up with Bugs Bunny and friends to defeat some aliens in a basketball game. This game would decide the fate of our planet. So, it was an important, must-win game for our heroes.
The Space Jam Soundtrack Returns to Vinyl
Space Jam is a great basketball and animated film, but most critics point to its soundtrack when praising it. The epic soundtrack features music from R Kelly, D’ Angelo, Changing Faces and Jay Z. The new vinyl release will also come with music from Quad City DJs, Seal, Salt-N-Peppa, Monica, Barry White and others.
The vinyl LP will drop on April 22, 2017, and will highlight such songs as ‘I Believe I Can Fly’ by R. Kelley and ‘For You I Will’ by Monica. Other tracks will include ‘Hit Em High’ featuring Busta Rhymes, LL Cool J, Method Man, Coolio and B Real, and ‘Space Jam’ by Quad City DJs.
