Yes, the Doctor Who soundtrack is getting pressed onto vinyl. This highly-popular television series on the BBC is in its 50th (!) year, and what better way to celebrate than to have a vinyl of the soundtrack with the rest of the wacky 50th anniversary goodies. This particular soundtrack refers to the first two seasons’ (from the rebooted Russell T. Davies-era) music, which was released on CD in 2006, but now under a limited edition vinyl. No word on the thickness or color, but I’m expecting 150 gram, black. If you’re a Doctor Who fan, this would be a splendid addition into your collection.
NOTE: This is a pre-order with the item being released on August 13, 2013. It is also a overseas shipping item, with shipping being an extra $12.84. (Little pricy for me, but, this will sell out soon.) According to the site’s information regarding pre-orders: “Your order will be [mailed] the weekend before the release date.”
Murray Gold - Doctor Who Series 1&2 Vinyl DLP
LIMITED TO ONLY 500 COPIES, DOUBLE LP IN A GATEFOLD SLEEVE.
This is the first release of music from the series revival and includes the acclaimed new version of the theme.
Neil Hannon (The Divine Comedy) performs two songs, Song For 10 from 2005's Christmas Special and Love Don't Roam from The Runaway Bride, broadcast as the key BBC programme for Christmas Day 2006.
Murray Gold is one of the most powerful British composers working in film and TV with successes including Alien Autopsy, Casanova, Shameless and Mischief Night.
Over 75 mins of music from the two new Doctor Who TV seasons.
“All the music here is memorable, hugely engaging and the album is easily one of the best of 2006, even pipping George Fenton's Planet Earth as best television score. You can keep your bland Star Trek TV music or your synthy Battlestar Galactica noodling or, dare I said it, Giacchino's fine music for Lost. This is the real deal, TV music with the budget, imagination, heart, soul and complexity of that for the darkened theatre. Terrific stuff. More BBC, more!”
- Soundtrack Express
"..seventy-five minutes of TV music that puts most big screen feature film soundtracks to shame."
