Companies, etc.



The complete singles collection, 24 songs remastered from the original recordings, including comp tracks and one unreleased track. Released for the first time on LP with a 20 page, full color, 7" x 7" booklet and download code. The first 100+ orders also received a tour poster from a 2000 tour featuring Orchid and Jeromes Dream which were packed by Will Killingsworth, former guitarist of Orchid and the owner of Clean Plate Records.

Quote from Will:
"In 2000 Orchid went on a tour that was somehow named after a part of one of the worst nightmares I ever had. Jay made this poster, we printed hundreds, and couldn't get rid of them all even just by giving them to kids buying merch. Since then I've had 100+ of these sitting in a box. Starting today they're going out to folks who ordered the Totality LP."
