The Dark Crystal on Vinyl

The Dark Crystal on Vinyl

Last year, Jim Henson’s masterpiece The Dark Crystal celebrated its 35th anniversary; and what better way to make the occasion than to release a special deluxe vinyl soundtrack?!

While finding the original release from last year for a decent price is very difficult, Thinkgeek has launched their own picture disc exclusive edition! The vinyls contain full pictures of the movie’s main characters on the front of the records and an iconic crystal on the back which is a large jump from the previous version which only varied in color.

Included in with the vinyl is a 24-paged booklet that is comprised of “rarely seen production photos, interviews, original poster art from around the world, and concept art from The Jim Henson Company archives.” This booklet, paired with the 40 minute of musical entertainment composed by Trevor Jones makes the collection an absolute steal for $39.99.
