Josie and the Pussycats Soundtrack Making a Vinyl Comeback Minus the Subliminal Tracks, We Promise
The soundtrack for the 2001 comedy Josie and the Pussycats is being reissued on vinyl by Mondo Records and fans could not be more excited! The film was loosely based on the Archie comic of the same title and features the girl band Josie and the Pussycats.
In the movie, the girls sign with a record label which turns out to be just a little bit evil. Starring Rachael Leigh Cook, Rosario Dawson, and Tara Reid as the Pussycats alongside Parker Posey, Alan Cumming, and Gabriel Mann, the movie did horribly in the box office, but that all changed with time. It ended up becoming a cult classic and the soundtrack in the end sold over 5,000,000 copies. Maybe it was all those subliminal tracks by Mr. Moviefone that convinced everyone, or maybe Josie and the Pussycats just freaking rock, who knows?
According to the Mondo Record Label Manager Mo Shafeek,
“Re-issuing the soundtrack to Josie and the Pussycats has been a holy grail for us. Even though the band doesn’t technically exist, it falls on our list of essential debut albums and deserves to be treated as such. It is an absolute honor to reissue it on vinyl for the first time ever.”
The new soundtrack comes on a purple leopard print vinyl record, in a cover featuring our 3 favorite girls. It will also come with a 7″ vinyl of songs by the fictional band DuJour, the boy band from the Josie and the Pussycats film, and a 12 page booklet that has behind-the-scenes photos and even an oral history of the movie. In the original soundtrack, those DuJour songs were included, but now they get their own record, because DuJour means special.
The reissue of the Josie and the Pussycats soundtrack is debuting at a special screening of the movie held in Los Angeles next month. There will also be a Q&A session and concert. What do you think of the soundtrack making a comeback? Is Josie and the Pussycats the greatest movie ever!?
