In early April of this year, I started tweeting Kevin Smith and attempting to raise awareness for a vinyl release of the Clerks soundtrack for the 20th anniversary of the film, which falls in 2014. I started a petition on April 18th, and had hoped for the best, but was unsure if anything would happen.
I found out today that ShopRadioCast is releasing the Clerks Soundtrack in time for the 20th anniversary. I don't wanna say that it's because of my campaign, but I would like to think I had a part in it. This is set to be released November 11th, 2014 (the original soundtrack was released October 11th, 1994) and the film was released October 19th, 1994. Preorders are up now at ShopRadioCast.com.
This release is coming in two variants. 500 black and white copies will be pressed (A/B on black and C/D on white), and 1,500 clear with black smoke will be pressed as well. Both variants a throwback to the fact that the film was shot in black and white. There will also be an etching on side D.
