Now fans of the 2001 episode have something to celebrate: as of March 20, it’s coming to vinyl. It’s a definite case of you-didn’t-know-you-wanted-it-until-you-got-it, but now here we are.
The 180 gram vinyl reissue – which is being released by Mondo – will additionally come with liner notes from series creator (and songwriter for the episode) Joss Whedon, and cover art from artist/illustrator Paul Mann.
Mondo record label manager Mo Shafeek sheds a bit of light on the release in a statement. “We’ve been huge fans of Buffy: The Vampire Slayer for decades…” he says. “Our obsession with the musical episode ‘Once More With Feeling’ inadvertently presented a solution to a long standing problem of the best entry point for us to celebrate the brilliantly singular, yet expansive series.”
Get ready for a nostalgia-tinged vampire singalong on March 20, complete with that vinyl crackle.
