******BIG APOLOGIES - UK/EUROPE VINYL DELAYS. Very sorry but looks like the worldwide vinyl delays will put back the release date to somewhere in October. The download will be available onJuly 21st. *******
Remember when vinyl was cool?... when you could hold that big sleeve in your hand and pull out a big poster?
Well it's even cooler now, so if you haven't got a record deck NOW is the chance to pop out and get one and be DOWN with the kids!
We have perfected a special mix that sounds much more retro - I mean - we want all those old fashioned peaks in the performance to be perfectly captured as they were in the studio.
This vinyl version includes a full size fold out poster that features Leah Darknell's cartoons - part of the inspiration leading up to and throughout the making of the album - and Al Steele's cryptic timeline descriptors for each song. On the reverse side are the lyrics (quite a read!) and all the musician/vocalist credits.
A 2nd poster accompanies the Deluxe CD, so we figured what the hell, we'll throw this in the other pocket! This contains all the info on how the vinyl mixes were achieved and the sort of decisions that were made to make this sound special.
There is a section on the history of the making of the album and there are also LOT'S of extra pics!
It is not just the mix that is different. To make this record the best it can be, we have made different cuts in the music. Back in the 60's and 70's an album was never more than 50 mins long in order to preserve the transients. We have cooked up a unique mix just for this edition - we hope you are as excited as us about a return to quality over volume!
If you are, then this lovingly created product is the one for you!
All physical products include a digital download - email required.
Although we had to leave 3 tracks off the vinyl the download reinstates those 3 tracks.
