Quentin Tarantino cult classic coming to vinyl for the first time
n the midst of changing cinematic history with Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction, Quentin Tarantino found time to pen the violent but sweet love story True Romance in 1993. Like many of Tarantino’s films, music plays a large role in the narrative, featuring selections from Hans Zimmer, Soundgarden, and Robert Palmer. Now, to celebrate the cult classic’s 25th anniversary, the film’s soundtrack is getting a deluxe vinyl release on July 7th via Wargod/Real Gone Music.
Despite the soundtrack’s notoriety, this will mark its first legit release on vinyl (there was a South Korean release of “dubious origin”), and they went all out with the presentation. The deluxe package comes in either Clarence-inspired “king gold” vinyl (limited to 297 copies), Alabama-inspired clear with aqua and pink splatter vinyl (limited to 686), or white blood splatter vinyl (limited to 2,000).
The spiffy looking LPs are packaged inside a gorgeous gatefold album jacket featuring commissioned, custom art work by Rafal Wechterowicz (Mastodon, Metallica). True Romance fans can also look forward to enamel pins featuring various characters from the film, two pairs of sunglasses, a slipmat with movie art, a postcard from the film’s main characters, and various other ephemera from the movie.
