80’s Music and Film icon & National Album Day ambassador Toyah Willcox said “Great music and cinematic stories have always gone hand in hand and the 80’s is a perfect example. Cinema in the 80’s was revolutionary for bringing high octane action and rock music together and I am proud to have been a part of this era. Cinema in 80’s was also about bringing the audience thrills, thrills and even more thrills. Never has there been a more appropriate time to revisit this celluloid adventures.”
This year’s 80s themed National Album Day also creates the perfect opportunity to revisit some of the decade’s greatest soundtracks on vinyl – from Top Gun to Footloose!
