Win ‘The Big Lebowski’ Soundtrack On ‘White Russian’ Vinyl
As the vinyl resurgence continues (and we hope it never stops), titles from the vaults are seeing the light of day for their first-ever appearances on wax. The soundtrack to the much loved Coen Brothers film, 'The Big Lebowski,' was only released on CD in its initial life. Now, 16 years later, that collection will finally hit turntables.
One of the famous scenes in the film featured Jeff Bridges, a.k.a. the Dude, expressing his hatred of the Eagles -- so on the soundtrack, we get the Gipsy Kings' own distinct take on the Eagles' 'Hotel California.' Other tracks by Henry Mancini, Kenny Rogers and the First Edition, and Townes Van Zandt's cover of the Rolling Stones classic 'Dead Flowers,' are featured here as well.
The standard black edition of the vinyl hit record stores yesterday (Nov. 24) -- but because everyone loves Record Store Day Black Friday, Universal Music is issuing the soundtrack on limited-edition 'White Russian' wax specifically for the holiday.
But wait -- there's more! You can enter to win a copy of your very own 'White Russian' vinyl from us here at Diffuser! All you have to do is follow @DiffuserFM on Twitter and retweet the below message:
