NEWS: DIRTY DANCING CELEBRATES 30TH ANNIVERSARY WITH BRAND NEW EDITION OF ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK
The timeless Oscar-winning classic Dirty Dancing will celebrate its 30th anniversary this winter with a brand-new CD and vinyl edition of the soundtrack titled The Ultimate Dirty Dancing. Out on 1 December through Sony Music, this special edition contains all the iconic hits from the film on one disc including ‘She’s Like the Wind’, ‘Hungry Eyes’ and, of course, ‘(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life’.
The soundtrack will be released on limited edition vinyl for the first time ever. It will include a pop up of the iconic lift from Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey when you open the gatefold, making this version of the soundtrack a real collectable for fans of the movie and something they can enjoy for years to come.
Since its release in 1987, Dirty Dancing has made more than £200 million at the box office and the soundtrack has sold more than 32 million copies worldwide making it one of the best-selling albums of all time. Its legacy has continued in various forms, from a theatrical production of the film in the West End, a recent remake of the film earlier this year starring Abigail Breslin, Nicole Scherzinger and Debra Messing, along with an annual Dirty Dancing Festival held in Lake Lure, North Carolina which has been running since 2010.
The Ultimate Dirty Dancing will be released on CD and vinyl on 1 December.
