There are three different versions, so for the sake of keeping the title clean I’m giving each piece a separate article which should be in the recommended articles below.

Available July 26th to order (there’s apparently no pre-order), a hodge podge of selections featured in some of Studio Ghibli’s films is being released on Mondo, a growing label whose releases other writers on Sly Vinyl have written about in the past. Unfortunately, I have only seen one Miyazaki film – Mononoke – but I have heard nothing but good things about his work. /Film’s piece, which I’ve put in the details below, will be much more helpful than I could be to you right now. As for quantity and cost, it’s not said but I think it might be safe to assume that it will be $25 going off of Mondo’s past 2xLP releases. Perhaps Mondo will divulge more information if you ask them on Twitter? Follow @MondoNews to see if you can budge. Apparently the sale time is going to be published there so keep your eyes peeled if you’re interested in this (or all three) pieces. For the Buy Now link, I’ve linked to where this release will probably go on sale when the 26th hits. Cheers!

The Details
