As things continue to developing leading up to the highly anticipated theatrical release of Wonder Woman as directed by critically acclaimed filmmaker Patty Jenkins and starring DCEU regular Gal Gadot as the titular superheroine, fans the 1970s TV show starring Lynda Carter as the eponymous Amazonian warrior princess will have the limited re-release of an official soundtrack to look forward to as well. Following its initial airing on ABC and CBS for three seasons from 1975 to 1979, Carter cemented herself as the first on screen representation of the classic DC Comics character for many fans and casual viewers alike.
After Gadot’s entrance into the DCEU as Diana Prince in the blockbuster event that was Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice from early last year, there has been significant and renewed interest in Wonder Woman as a feature film property of potential merit and box office attraction. What’s more, many fans of the classic comic book hero may have already begun diving back into the original 1970s TV show starring Lynda Carter in order to better familiarize themselves with past iterations of the franchise – a trip down memory lane that will be further celebrated with a commercial re-release of the show’s official soundtrack.
According to CBR, the official soundtrack to the 1970s Wonder Woman television series – featuring over forty tracks from lead composers Charles Fox, Artie Kane, Robert Prince, Johnny Harris, Robert O. Ragland, Angela Morley, and Richard LaSalle in a limited release three-disc set – will be made available to purchase for $34.98 starting May 9. The special edition CD set will also include a 24-page booklet with liner notes from series writer John Takis and a foreword by comic book expert Andy Mangels.
Fans of the 1970s Wonder Woman series who are lucky enough to reside in the Burbank, California area can also attend a pre-release event signing for the limited-edition soundtrack with lead composer Charles Fox in attendance ahead of the soundtrack’s commercial release later this month. For everyone else, copies are destined to be in modest supply for those who want to get their hands on the official pressing from La-La Land Records, so be sure to pre-order a copy in advance.
Wonder Woman is sure to be a significant box office contender when it finally hits the big screen later this June, but Lynda Carter’s turn on the small screen is a significant predecessor to consider when purchasing your ticket to the latest DCEU spectacle. On that note, picking up a copy of the 1970s TV series soundtrack might be an attractive investment for fans of the iconic comic book character.
