The album also featured samples of audio recordings made by Poe’s father, film director Tad Danielewski. The cassettes were found by Poe and Mark after their father had died and were literally audio-letters to the two of them that spanned back as far as their birth.

The Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack is mostly ’70s/’80s pop songs. (Listen here!)
