Don't Give Up! You Can Still Get Mega Man Legends' OST on Vinyl!

The Mega Man Legends Official Soundtrack vinyl and audio cassette went up for pre-order earlier today. Aaaaand the vinyl has completely sold out. That's great news and a bit of a bummer all at once. But don't fret, my Legends friend! There's TWO more ways to get the OST on vinyl!

The first is through Light in the Attic. They're reportedly printing copies of the vinyl, too. Unique to their version, though, is that the records are clear. Transparent. It's the same content as the STSPC's run just see-through-ish.

The second method is through Black Screen Records. They, too, are offering a variant: "blue/light blue moon phase" vinyl. Again, same content just different vinyl designs.

So if you missed out on the vinyl and still want it, this is your next best option. There's currently no word if STSPC will offer a second print so you may want to jump on these ASAP. Click the links above to pre-order!

Thanks for the tip, Megamanmatthew and Conor!

  2. I'm just so confused as to why there is such demand for vinyl. Do people actually have record players that they use? we all carry MP3 players with us 24/7, is there really so much demand for these mega man vinyls?

    2. Vinyl is much more of an experience rather than just putting on a streamed/downloaded song. You have to set time aside to listen to it in a singular location. It's more of a commitment to listen to, but it feels more rewarding as it's likely that the buyer will listen to the entire album rather than just an artist's top charting single. Plus the audio has a crisper and warmer sound than one would find on a digital file thanks to it being on an analog format, assuming it has been properly mastered for an analog release.

    3. vinyl apparently has superior sound quality and there are players still being made today to capitalize on the love of vinyl. I would say its more for home use anyway, just listening to your absolute favorite tunes with yourself. its no more expensive than buying a home CD player and CDs like people used to.

    4. Yes. while I am no means a vinyl expert but any stretch of the imagination. There is both a sound quality that people like, especially in older or quality pressings, that you dont get from playing on a mp3 player or cd. They make all sorts of record players today. On top of that, theres nostalgia and just the fact that its kinda cool to collect music you like on big vinyl discs. Its an enthusiast hobby for sure.

    5. If you know how audio works, you know that vinyl is basically the uncompressed track being played. Where as a cd is more compressed than a vinyl and a download is more compressed than a cd, and streaming is more compressed than a download from itunes or whatever. Some people want to listen to the music in a high quality lossless format. There are tons of people with turntables. This comment almost feels like bait, but I'm taking the bait by responding.

    6. exactly, there are "Some people". most people's lives revolve around a cell phone. I know turntables still exist, and I see them at the store from time to time, usually designed to look very retro. I've always seen turntables as an old fogey thing, or a hipster thing, neither group have I known to contain mega man fans.

      Also, Digital is superior to vinyl... depending on the format. you could have uncompressed FLAC files. Vinyl degrades over time as it is used, especially closer to the center, and playback can be screwed up by dust.

      I can see it being a niche hobbyist thing, but then I don't see why we keep getting mega man vinyls, and in this case, casettes?!? I've seen record players in the store, but it's been like 10 years since I last saw a casette player.

    7. I mean you can say digital is superior to vinyl but there is a specific sound that playing a vinyl on a record player gets that some people like to hear. But this also depends on the quality of the vinyls pressing.

      Now casettes, you got me there. That is nothing but 100 percent nostalgia. cause theres is literally no other reason to listen to a casette, unless you really like rewinding tapes for some reason.

  3. Any word on if this will be released on cassette anywhere else other than STSPC's store?

  4. I missed the preorder window because I had to drive home at the time, but I contacted the site and they said they'll restock the cassette tape eventually. For the record, I do still have a Walkman lying around, so I won't be buying it for nothing.

  5. Well, it’s still a long shot but hopefully it helps to show how much love Legends still has.
