A new vinyl release of The Muppet Movie Soundtrack is now available for pre-order. This classic soundtrack from the original Muppets movie is arguably the best Muppet soundtrack ever. Released by iam8bit, there are four different variants for the soundtrack. This includes Kermit Green, Scooter Yellow, Animal Red, and Miss Piggy Pink. Kermit Green and Miss Piggy Pink are available for pre-sale from iam8bit. The other two will be sold at other locations. Information about where to purchase the other two variants can be found on the iam8bit tweet here:
The album is now available for pre-sale and is expected to be shipped out sometime during the second quarter of the year. The art for this vinyl is absolutely beautiful and the album was remastered for this release. This will be a must-have for any Muppets fan who also happens to collect Vinyl, or maybe just all Muppets fans.
The following description was released about the album on the iam8bit website:
It’s an absolute dream come true for iam8bit to collaborate with The Muppets Studio and Walt Disney Records to release this completely remastered revival of The Muppet Movie soundtrack on vinyl. (That feels sooooo good to say.) More than 40 years since it’s original release in 1979, we’ve rummaged backstage at The Muppet Theatre to dust off timeless recordings like the Oscar-nominated “Rainbow Connection” and the road trip ditty, “Movin’ Right Along,” sparing no executional detail to give this album the treatment it deserves. The music by legends, Paul Williams and Kenneth Ascher, is undisputedly excellent, charming in its love of lyricism, with perfectly-honed harmonies and arrangements. These are the songs that rocketed The Muppets from mere TV stardom to the realm of rockstars, featuring outstanding performances by Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Gonzo the Great, Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem (with Animal on wicked drums), and so many more. Statler and Waldorf would even approve of the outstanding album artwork by Kevin Wilson, who approached this design not merely as a commission, but as a lifelong obsession with The Muppets..iam8bit.com
