The Great Gatsby Vinyl on Gold, Platinum Discs, Additional Info

Posted by - 11:36 AM on 05/09/13
As imagined, Third Man Records is going above and beyond for their pressing of The Great Gatsby soundtrack. Both LPs in the set are blindingly reflective metalized discs. Disc one is platinum and disc two is gold. These are the first-ever commercially available records made using these precious metals via this process. Not stopping there, the records come housed in a entirely unique laser-cut wooden LP jacket riveted to aluminum spines. Pre-sales will go live tomorrow and the vinyl will be released on June 11th. You can watch a video detailing the process in the replies.

Honestly, I would probably play this once and then never listen to it again. This is a collectors item. That packaging is gorgeous.

Man, I'm not a fan of the music on the soundtrack and I wouldn't buy it even if I could but I have to give Jack White props for coming up with unique and awesome ideas for the pressings on his label.

I feel like this kinda misses the point of one of the big themes in The Great Gatsby - the idea that materialistic beauty is overrated and that extravagance can never overcome simple quality... still, I gotta say it's pretty cool.
