Netflix has now released a limited edition vinyl collection of the short-lived Cowboy Bebop series. The vinyl also contains new music from Yoko Kanno and The Seatbelts. The Netflix Cowboy Bebop vinyl was produced as a collaboration with iam8bit. The soundtrack is a two-LP set featuring red coloring. One of the biggest standouts for the set is the corgi-colored furry cover with Ein’s dog collar.

Altogether, the set costs $160. However, for those that cannot purchase it, there is a digital album on Amazon Music for $19. The Cowboy Bebop music is also available on Spotify. The album is currently described as:
“Yoko Kanno is a sonic genius. The funky, jazzy, cool as hell theme song to Cowboy Bebop isn’t just a classic; it’s legendary. It’s a hummable, danceable, song-to-beat-up-bad-guys-to. The kind of track that gets your heart pumpin’, toes tappin’, and jettison you into a good mood orbit. What she and her band, The Seatbelts, have crafted for the original soundtrack to the live-action Netflix series is pure awesome- a natural evolution of its anime origins, feeling big and bountiful in new and exciting ways. This is the kind of music that thrives on a turntable, immensely enjoyable, even on the hundredth spin.”
Cowboy Bebop Vinyl: Music for a Show that Divided Fans
Netflix’s Cowboy Bebop series served to be a gamble with fans. As of now, many live-action anime adaptations have been sub-par (and even meme-worthy). While many considered Cowboy Bebop decent enough to be canceled too early, many disagreed. Despite the title being a divide with fans, it was still enough to garner 70 million views in the first week. One of the biggest praises with fans was the opening sequence, which paid homage to the iconic anime version.
The Cowboy Bebop vinyl set can be found here. The 1998 Cowboy Bebop anime is available to stream on Netflix, Funimation, and Hulu.
