Awesome Mix Vol. 1 is a mixtape heavily featured in Guardians of the Galaxy. It is owned by Peter Quill, as it was given to him by his mother. It contains her favorite songs when she was growing up, so she made a mixtape out of them and give it Peter so he could listen to them. Peter keeps the mixtape in his ship attatched to a stereo system but also uses the cassette on his Sony Walkman. In the end of the movie, Peter receives a second mix tape as a gift from his mother before she died.
