Harry Potter fans, rejoice. If you already have all the films on Blu-Ray and all the books in print, you’ll now be able to get the first five Potter soundtracks as a massive vinyl box set—a dream come true for any massive music and magic fans.
The vinyl set, which is set to be released next month, will collect the scores from the first five films and be pressed on vinyl picture discs (10 LPs). It's set to be released Nov. 17.
Rhino Records explain that the soundtrack is packaged in a “gatefold sleeve that is die-cut on both sides,” and the images used for the picture discs are taken from the related films. The set also includes a download card so you can listen to the soundtrack wherever you please.
The first three films were scored by composer John Williams, while Patrick Doyle wrote music for the Goblet Of Fire and Nicholas Hooper for Order of the Phoenix. Not to mention, one song from the first soundtrack—“Hedwig’s Theme”—became the main theme for the series and appears in all the Harry Potter films. Who wouldn’t want that on vinyl?
The fifth film’s soundtrack also features three songs by a fictional rock band featured in the story whose members include Pulp and Radiohead members.
Below is the album listing, in case you need a refresher.
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (2001)
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002)
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004)
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005)
Harry Potter and the Order of The Phoenix (2007)
We’re just excited to give these records a listen… In between watching the films on repeat, of course.
