It turns out 2022 isn't going to go out without a little bit of good news! Supercade has just announced that they will be launching a campaign to offer a vinyl record version of George Oldziey's Wing Commander Orchestral Recording Project:
Wing Commander III, IV, Kilrathi Saga and Prophecy composer George Oldziey crowd funded a beautiful album of Wing Commander tracks recorded with a live orchestra several years ago which was offered at the time as a CD. Supercade began as a lavish history of video games with a project titled Supercade: A Visual History of the Videogame Age 1971-1984. They've since funded a second history book covering 1985 to 2001 and produced a variety of video game-related merchandise; this will be their first vinyl record. In fact, this would be the first Wing Commander music ever released on vinyl, a format which has seen a surge in popularity in recent years both because of its unique sound and for the more impressive presentability of the records and their larger format art. From the looks of the teaser image, this new release may be a limited edition that's minted in an impressive nebula-like colorway. We'll bring you all the details as soon as they're available!
