Mondo releases new special vinyl editions every Wednesday. This is the ultimate edition of everything they release, with plenty of liner notes, brand new commissioned artwork, and always a limited edition size. The vinyl itself is usually colored or a photo disc as well. Basically, it’s like the Criterion Collection of movie and game soundtracks. This week sees the release of the soundtrack of coconut, for my money, the best movie Pixar has ever released. Mondo has been releasing Disney/Pixar soundtracks for a while now, and this one is one of the most anticipated. The soundtrack of coconut will be presented on two-tone discs.
Mondo Coco Release Details
“This week, we’re proud to continue our ongoing Disney/Pixar soundtrack series with a limited-edition soundtrack pressing of the 2017 animated masterpiece. COCONUT. It features brand new artwork from Nicole Gustafson, which will nicely rub shoulders with his creations for RATATOUILLE and UP. The next two months will be significant for fans of Michael Giacchino, as we have quite a few exclusive releases of his music to come. And that’s not all; we also have a limited stock of Atticus Ross and Trent Reznorthe award-winning score of SOUL. New versions will be available on 12 p.m. CT on Wednesday, January 26.”
I’ve missed other Pixar Mondo releases, but I won’t miss coconut. Like I said, it’s my favorite Pixar movie, and a big part of that is the original songs and the score. I hum “Remember Me” and “Un Poco Loco” to myself almost every day, and I’m a huge sucker for those specialty soundtrack releases. And look at this jacket illustration! My god, it’s beautiful. Either way, I’ll fight with all of you to get my hands on this one when it goes on sale this Wednesday from The Mondo Record Shop.
