Mad Max (hmv Exclusive) the 1921 Centenary Edition Dark Red Vinyl
This year marks a full century since the first hmv store opened its doors at 363 Oxford Street in London, and on July 24 we'll be celebrating our 100th birthday in style with a brand new and exclusive range of limited edition vinyl just for you...
As part of our birthday celebrations we're pleased to announce the new 1921 Centenary Edition range, for which we have carefully curated a selection of the finest albums and soundtracks from the last 100 years and had them specially pressed onto some beautiful coloured vinyl - all of which will be available exclusively in hmv stores on Saturday July 24 and from store.hmv.com at 4pm the same day. As ever, our exclusives will be available on a first come, first served basis... and when they're gone, they're gone!
George Miller’s post-apocalyptic road movie is undoubtedly a classic and one which has gone on to spawn an entire franchise in its wake, but its groundbreaking score by composer Brian May (no, not that one) also won awards in its own right and combines Bernard Hermann-esque sensibilities with the clanging, grinding sounds of the heavy machinery featured in the film itself.
First released in 1980, a year after the movie first hit cinema screens, Mad Max is one of a handful of soundtracks joining our 1921 Centenary Edition range, with a newly-pressed limited run of 750 copies on dark red vinyl heading to stores in July.
