Good Omens / 4LP deluxe vinyl package

4LP coloured vinyl • Limited to 500 copies • SIGNED by Neil Gaiman

The BBC Radio 4 dramatisation of Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman’s 1990 book Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch is being released as a deluxe 4LP vinyl package, with a limited quantity pressed on coloured vinyl and including a print SIGNED by Neil Gaiman.

Good Omens is getting much publicity right now as a ‘major’ Amazon Prime TV series is imminent. This will star  David Tennant, Michael Sheen, Jon Hamm. It tells the story of how the fallen angel/demon Crowley and the angel Aziraphale work together to prevent the coming of the antichrist.

The novel was adapted and co-directed for BBC Radio 4 in 2014 by the award-winning Dirk Maggs who also tackled The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, amongst others. This is the first time it has been released on vinyl.

The cast features Mark Heap (as Aziraphale) the brilliant Peter Serafinowicz (as Crowley) along with Josie Lawrence, Colin Morgan, Charlotte Richie and many others. Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett make cameo appearances.

The exclusive (to Amazon UK) limited edition features four 180g heavyweight black and white vinyl – including a laser-etched Side B – are presented in illustrated wallets inside a rigid, bound 16 page book, with exclusive sleeve notes written by Neil Gaiman and Dirk Maggs. There are just 500 and they all come with a print signed by Gaiman.

This Good Omens vinyl package will be released on 2 August 2019, via Demon Records.

Heap and Serafinowicz. There is a talented pair.

Serafinowicz is a real odd bod, so super talented and yet he always seems to be so aloof as if to prove he is not really trying. If you haven’t seen the Peter Serafinowicz show, youtube it, it’s brilliant (his Wogan is superlative). And as far as his marriage goes, lucky sod, he’s really punchin’ (as my daughter would say).
On Topic, as far as the record goes £99 for seven sides of spoken word is a tad steep, however it won’t be around long I don’t think. Particularly with Mr. Gaiman’s stamp of approval.

To answer CJ Feeney’s question, below, I have listened to the first two Hitchhiker’s (I bailed after two) and Alan Partridge and they sound fine, the mass of dialogue doesn’t put the same pressure on the vinyl real estate that music does. Nothing so far has made me think “ooh, that’s off”.

Looks as good a package as the Hitch-hikers ones and with the signed print, ordering this is a no-brainer.

CJ Feeney

That looks very nice. Can I just clarify, when you say etched side B, does that apply to every disc? It would be exreme to put it a double album on 4 LPs

It would also be good if Gaiman’s Neverwhere radio series (6x 30mins) came in this format.

Can anyone comment on how the long sides sound on these radio vinyl discs.

This is the radio adaptation with a different cast

I’m getting rather jealous of radio/comedy fans as they do appear to have much higher quality/interesting releases than other genre (including soundtracks) – and from the comments of others on here, they more than live up to their expectations…

It’s strange to buy the soundtrack of a TV series that’s not released yet but I’m a fan of Gaiman so I just can’t resist. :-)

Danny

This isn’t a soundtrack to the TV series: it’s the BBC Radio 4 version. ;)
