RARE on Vinyl

With Black Friday just around the corner, there are many promotional deals popping up all over the place and of course I'm always on the lookout for anything Video Game Music related so here's one that caught my eye.. well, both eyes.  iam8bit is releasing three new vinyls based off of three games created by RARE, those games are: Battletoads in Battlemaniacs - Composer David Wise(SNES), Conker's Bad Fur Day - Composer Robin Beanland(N64) and Viva Piñata - Composer Grant Kirkhope(Xbox 360).  From the description, it sounds like the classic "Great Mighty Poo Song"  from Conker's Bad Fur Day has been fully remastered exclusively for this release—now I just need to hear it performed live. We've always been huge fans of RARE's games over the years and it's great to see the soundtracks from these games continue to recieve this treatment of re-masters and re-releases.   Anyway, these vinyls will be released during the second quarter or 2018 BUT pre-orders begin on Black Friday at 12:01am PST(3:01am for us East Coasters). Just the cover work alone makes it worth it for displaying with your gaming collection but if you're interested in expanding your gaming records, here's the link to the site to pre-order.
