The comedy science fiction series began life as a six-part BBC radio show in 1978 created by Douglas Adams, before being adapted into a novel, a 1981 television show, 1984 video game, and a 2005 feature film.

Though an abridged version and signed collectors edition of the series’ music were released earlier this year, this is the first time its soundtrack has been made available on vinyl in its entirety.

Each 3xLP red box set also includes a 12″x12″ book, with expanded liner notes, and new artwork.
