Twilight Saga Soundtracks Vol. 1 Hits GOLD!
A news report from Home Media Magazine, the Recording Industry Association just announced that the Twilight Saga Soundtracks Volume 1 just hit gold status.
According to the news report :
Nowadays Steve Nickerson, Summit Entertainmentâ€™s president of home entertainment, isnâ€™t surprised by how well anything â€œTwilightâ€ does at retail.
So when the Recording Industry Association of America, or RIAA, announced this month that the combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc releases of Music Videos and Performances fromÂ The Twilight Saga Soundtracks Vol. 1 had reached RIAA-certified gold status Nickerson was more pleased than surprised.
â€œItâ€™s a little bit of a unique project we developed with Atlantic [Records], and weâ€™re happy with the consumer reaction to it,â€ he said. â€œEach of the three individual soundtracks did more than well, and while any of the videos may be available through the individual artists, to put them all together in a product was a unique opportunity,â€
This â€œvisual soundtrackâ€ ($34.99 Blu-ray, $26.99 DVD) features music videos and live performances from bands featured on the soundtracks ofÂ The Twilight Saga: Twilight, New Moon andÂ Eclipse, including Muse, Paramore, Death Cab For Cutie and Cee Lo Green. More than 20 songs are included, and bonus features include two more performances: Debussy â€œClair de Luneâ€ and Verdi â€œLa Traviata.â€ The collection also is available for download via iTunes.
Nickerson knows most â€œTwilightâ€ fans are already hip to the collection, but he has a message for those who havenâ€™t happened on it yet: â€œIf youâ€™re a fan of the movies and youâ€™re a fan of the music, you should take a look at it.â€
While this may have come as a surprise to some, as a Twilight fan and avid lover of music, this is no surprise to me at all! Â Twilight’s music ROCKS!
