    This is getting re issued on 2LP vinyl for Record Store Day April 20th 2024.

      Does anyone know why this is the only classic FSOL album not getting a repress? Masters lost? Trouble with licensing? What's going on here? Seems an odd choice to leave out; it's one of their finest works.
      Also wouldn't mind a deluxe edition with the leftovers from the first edition and ISDN show added, just sayin'... ;)

        Assuming as 'ISDN' reaches it's 25th Anniversary this year, it will get a rightful repress on Heavyweight vinyl!
        • circledrag's avatar
          ISDN desperately needs a reissue on 180 gram vinyl. Come on Virgin!

            one of my favorites.
