Overview

Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix, Vol. 1

Whatever the precise plot machinations that led Guardians of the Galaxy to rely so heavily on the Super Hits from the '70s doesn't quite matter when it comes to regarding the soundtrack. Here, the record works as a sampler of the soft rock and Yacht rock hits that are familiar not only from constant exposure on the radio, but also their use in movies. "Hooked on a Feeling" played a pivotal role in Reservoir Dogs, "Spirit in the Sky" opened up Miami Blues, "Fooled Around and Fell in Love" was in Boogie Nights, and "Escape (The Piña Colada Song)" has been in countless films and TV shows -- as has almost everything else here with the possible exception of David Bowie's "Moonage Daydream," which touches upon the space age futurism of this comic book caper. [The expanded double-disc set has a second CD containing Tyler Bates' big, sweeping score, but it's the "Awesome Mix" that offers a nostalgia trip that's potent even if you've never seen the film.]

I have played this over and over again. It is such a good collection of 70's songs. I loved them in the movie. I was walking through a B&N store and saw this picture disc and immediately bought it. I am so glad B&N had one displayed in the store or I wouldn't have thought of getting it. It is also cool that it has the pictures on it. The "Spirit in the Sky" that wasn't in the movie is a great addition to the songs. Thanks for having this where I could see it! By the way, I bought it in March of 2018. I'll have to buy GotG Vol. 2 also! I hope B&N has a picture disc of that one too.
