This Saturday (tomorrow) Data Discs is releasing the vinyl soundtrack to one of the greatest beat em ups of the 1980s. Sega’s classic Golden Axe will be available in a limited edition pressing featuring two thick lithographic prints, and the record itself pressed on heavyweight translucent gold vinyl. The soundtrack for Golden Axe II is also included but it’s best to forget about that game.
Data Discs stated that “The outer sleeve features rare artwork from the 1989 Japanese edition, sourced from the SEGA archives and presented on 425gsm cardstock with gold flood printing.” The audio was also restored and remastered ensuring the greatest sound quality possible.
The Golden Axe soundtrack is available for £19.99.
