V/A – Earth To Echo Soundtrack

Manchester Orchestra appeared on yet another soundtrack in 2014, this one of for the Disney/Relativity Media film Earth To Echo. I knew nothing about the movie prior to purchasing the soundtrack, and didn’t even know the movie existed either. After doing some quick research the movie appears to be a blatant rip-off of the classic ET.

The song Manchester Orchestra lends to the soundtrack is “Opposite Sides,” which is a b-side off the band’s fourth studio album, Cope. This is the first time the song has appeared on a 12″ LP record, but not the first appearance of the song on vinyl, as it was included on one of the 7″ records included with the deluxe edition box set of Cope.

The Earth To Echo soundtrack was released by Music On Vinyl, which is a Dutch based label who specialize in soundtracks and re-presses of rare/expensive OOP albums. Since the soundtrack would be an import in The States, the price is going to be higher than it would be otherwise. There were 1,000 copies pressed on light blue 180 gram vinyl, with every copy being individually numbered in gold foil stamping on the back of the jacket in the lower left corner. All copies also come in a resealable protective poly sleeve with a gold Music On Vinyl sticker affixed to the top right corner that denotes what the album/record is.
