To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the motion picture Forrest Gump, SRCvinyl is proud to announce the first ever North American vinyl pressing of the soundtrack. All 32 tracks have been placed across three vinyl LPs to ensure maximum audio fidelity, in addition to vinyl mastering and lacquers by Kevin Gray, and platting at RTI. The album will be available on 180-gram silver vinyl LPs, pressed at United Records in the U.S.A.
The 32-song soundtrack from the film was originally released on July 6, 1994. The soundtrack includes songs from Elvis Presley, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Aretha Franklin, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Three Dog Night, The Byrds, The Doors, The Mamas & the Papas, The Doobie Brothers, Simon & Garfunkel, Bob Seger, and Buffalo Springfield, among others. Music producer Joel Sill reflected on compiling the soundtrack: 'We wanted to have very recognizable material that would pinpoint time periods, yet we didn't want to interfere with what was happening cinematically.' The three-disc album has a variety of music from the 1950s-1980s performed by American artists. According to Sill, this was due to Zemeckis' request, 'All the material in there is American. Bob (Zemeckis) felt strongly about it. He felt that Forrest wouldn't buy anything but American.'
Forrest Gump: The Soundtrack is one of the most successful movie soundtrack albums of all time. The album — like the film — instantly captured the heart of America, going into the Top 10 of Billboard's Pop Album chart and shipping more than 1 million units in its first few weeks of release. This timeless album of American Classics has since been certified diamond — selling more than 6 million copies.
"The movie Forrest Gump is about time. A simple man's journey through complicated times. The coming-of-age of a generation and a country. And at the heart of the story is the music. Music that lives with us, always there to remind us of the people, the places, and the events of our time." — Robert Zemeckis & Eric Roth
