I just did a side-by-side and the 10" version clocks in at 8:44 while the LP version is 9:26. Also, right before the end where it changes up and stops, there is a brief snatch of some orchestral sample on the new version that isn't on the old one. So... See full review

OK, listening again and yes there is a sample that says "The End Of Nothing, The Beginning Of Everything", so I guess this will be retitled and included in the box.

just the fuckin' best, an absolute triumph of remastering with essential bonus material. five stars.

are you sure about that? the titles and track times here don't seem to match either of the two unreleased albums included in the 2nd Chasse volume.

This is a really astonishing album from a true talent, his best in years. So happy to have the updated version of "Old World" on vinyl after seeing him do it live. Well worth your time and attention and money

Just a fantastic bootleg, one of the best overall grab-bag style discs out there

this can't be from 1972 if it was distributed by Recommended, maybe 1982?

one of my biggest "had it, sold it, regretted it" moments was with the original of this. I'm so happy they reissued these with the original mixes!

one of the greatest debut singles of all time, essential

Their finest moment IMO, a tour de force that is essential for all Swell Maps/Raincoats/Essential Logic fans as well as those who dig Mayo's postpunk period

side B (listed as side A here) has a double groove and more tracks that I don't think are listed here. great album!

um are you familiar with this period of his work? take a listen to Farouk Enjineer or Tandoori Dog and then decide if what you hear on this record should be there

thank you for clarifying the "Burning Bush" mystery, I was wondering about that based on track times

The easiest 5-star rating I've ever given, the #1 essential reissue of 2019. Bonus points for the extra material included on the Gris LP (which is absolutely incredible), the sensitive remastering, the Mohnomishe lock groove on side E, and the... See full review

This reissue sounds absolutely goddamn majestic, best version I've heard and I've owned both OG vinyl and CD. Highest recommendations for this whole series.

As per the 2015 comment below, this is a terrible pressing. Inexcusable flaws throughout, the kind of distortion that lasts a full revolution and is easily visible with a wave editor. Avoid at all costs.

incredible stuff, essential if you're a fan. grab it now.

sadly no, although they played a few "reunion" shows on the West Coast in 2004 or so and ATP in 2011. they could really use a reissue program, one of the best bands in the US during the 90s.

has anyone heard this? I'd love any input as to what\'s going on with this release.
posted a review of Die Kreuzen - Cows And Beer. over 2 years ago
the definitive reissue, primo Midwest hardcore that constantly threatens to careen off the rails but still somehow maintains the tight unity of the band as they burn through six early classics.

incredible album, buy now or regret it later. the sort-of followup to Live Low To The Earth..., and almost as satisfying.

can anybody comment on how this sounds compared to the original Rounder LP?
posted a review of Jandek - Toronto Sunday. over 4 years ago
A particularly amazing example of "modern era" Jandek, featuring the representative sing-speaking his way through a surprisingly dynamic and beautiful score for orchestra and 3-piece rock band.
