Star Wars: Attack of the Clones is Being Released on Limited Edition Vinyl

Despite the ceaseless hubbub over Star Wars: The Force Awakens, a copious level of marketing continues to be in effect for the much-maligned Star Wars prequel series. Despite a mass panning of George Lucas's pet trilogy, the luscious scores that adorned the films (composed by the incomparable John Williams) are still in high demand. Fans of the music can now buy the soundtrack to Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, and pre-order the Star Wars: Attack of the Clones OST on the timeless medium: vinyl. While Disney has recently released the complete set, the label I AM SHARK has announced that their offer will mark the first time the films are available on limited edition vinyl.

The third-party website, I AM SHARK, which began as an independent record label, has now stepped into the world of Film, TV, and Game soundtracks, among other related merchandise. Specializing in limited edition vinyl releases of science fiction soundtracks, the label offers cuts of Oblivion, Gravity, Escape From New York, Aliens, and more.

The Star Wars: Episode I soundtrack was released last September, and Star Wars: Attack of the Clones will be officially released on March 15th. Although only 1000 copies will be pressed initially, I AM SHARK is currently accepting pre-orders.

This particular run of the Star Wars prequel soundtracks is considered a "limited edition" vinyl run as the OSTs have never been released on vinyl to date. Although Disney is currently releasing the set, I AM SHARK is staggering their releases.  Available in 2xLP format in a gatefold slip, the label offers various colored versions of the discs. While the Episode I vinyl had introduced five style variations, Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones will introduce a "Silver / Transparent Royal Mix" (representing the color scheme of Jango Fett's armor).

Sample a taste of John Williams talents below!  Whatever your thoughts on the films, the music is a strongly considered addition to vinyl collections!
