Buffy’s “Once More With Feeling” Getting a Vinyl Release

One of the most beloved episodes, of one of the most beloved geek shows in history is “Once More With Feeling” – the musical episode from the sixth season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

In this particular episode from 2001, a demon called Sweet takes Dawn to be his bride and traps all of Sunnydale into a deadly musical, which Joss Whedon used brilliantly to address relationship issues between all the characters, including the reveal that when the Scoobies resurrected Buffy, they didn’t save her from Hell, but instead ripped her from Heaven. At the time it was a pretty major deal, and this remains one of the better hours in the show’s entire run.

The release comes from the Mondo Record Label, who in a statement said:

We’ve been huge fans of “Buffy: The Vampire Slayer” for decades…. Our obsession with the musical episode “Once More With Feeling” inadvertently presented a solution to a long standing problem of how to best entry point for us to celebrate the brilliantly singular, yet expansive series. It took a few years to get it perfect, but we couldn’t be prouder with the artwork that Paul Mann put together—including some truly inspired additional design by Chris Bilheimer and Eric Montes, who came up with the idea of the “Slaybill” lyric booklet.

Lionsgate has released the first trailer for S. Craig Zahler’s latest film, Dragged Across Concrete.
