You might want to head to your local Salvation Army and pick up a cassette player because the Guardians of the Galaxy are going old school.

It's learned the soundtrack, Awesome Mix. Vol 1., will be available on cassette starting November 28th.

For those too young to know, previous to CDs and even digital music, cassette players and walkmans were the favorite choice for portable music. has it that James Gunn's favorite choice of music for Guardians of the Galaxy will be a limited edition cassette released through Marvel Music/Hollywood Records, a division of Disney Music Group, exclusively to the community of independent retailers associated with Record Store Day, through Dec. 31st.

Awesome Mix. Vol 1. has already been available through CD, digital download and vinyl LP., which hit the no. 1 spot on the Billboard Top 200 when it was released.

Each of the cassettes will come with a digital download version of the Awesome Mix. Vol 1. album, and it will be the first music cassette released by Disney since 2003.

It's unknown how many copies of the Guardians of Galaxy cassette will be released, so this could be a big collector's item.
