I bought this awhile ago thinking it would be something worth sharing. Just from looking at the limited information I could find online, figured it would be tracks from his MGB performances in Germany already on youtube.

 

Got it in the mail today and unfortunately it's a mini disc with 30 second snippets of studio tracks. Bummer but oh well, paid $10 for it.

Whew was starting to worry about these maybe not seeing the light of day. Absolutely stoaked to have Audio of Being coming that just fantastic. I have an original avalanche but very cool to see that coming out as well and will pick up a copy. Much respect to Matt for differing this so as to keep the uniqueness to the originals! Absolutely thrilled with Loser and loser anthems cause I really wasnt sure if they get a green light. Awesome!

 

Curious about no White Light though? It now is the only MG album to not receive a vinyl release. Perhaps a third run is planned including Vancouver lights and arrows

I wonder how the LoFi/Loser Anthems combo artwork will be

 

Weird with the lone hold out on White Light, maybe something to do with how the artwork was bought/licensed?

Ha Chad, we think alike! I was already thinking will it be one cover on front one on back? something new entirely?

Hmm didn't think about artwork being a hold up, but it's possible.  It would be a real shame if all his albums ended up released save for White Light, but I'm guessing a third round is planned.  When Matt announced doing this he said he wanted his whole catalog available on vinyl.  Well even though some of his newer items got released, they really aren't "available" to most anymore.  Also with Matt being so vocally in love with Lights of Endangered Species, I'd be surprised if it wasn't reissued.

That's fantastic!

 

Didn't Matt once say AoB would be a 3LP due to the run time? I imagine it'll probably be on black vinyl but I would pay handsomely for a black-grey-white triple album.

 

That artwork will be beautiful on a record jacket too.

 

Super looking forward to this one.

Ya Audio on vinyl would look awesome I've envisioned that cover on a vinyl album many times and I think it'll look just fantastic.  Would Audio of Being be a triple album? Isn't Avalanche longer and it fit on two? Actually looking at track times, Audio of Being would fit nicely on a double LP, 3 songs per side over four sides fits basically perfect, around 17 mins per side which is pretty standard.

I'm pretty pumped for the chance to own Avalanche on vinyl.  Sounds awesome.

That would be pretty cool to hear an old album like that in a different order.

Avalanche is six minutes longer and it fit on two. Should be able to fit on a double; that said, if I am not mistaken, it will depend on the fidelity/compression of the mixdown. As we all know, not all vinyl is created equal.

True, but have you ever seen a 62 minute record spread over three vinyls? I think even extreme audiophiles would consider that a little unnecessary.  That's ten minutes a side.  Basically half of the industry standard.  At 16 minutes or so per side I really think that should have no compression issues due to the format.  I think it would really hurt sales of it if it were put on 3 vinyls.  The doubles were selling for $40, so a 3 record Audio selling for $60ish? I just can't see that getting too many purchases outside of the few diehards who hang around here.

Oh, yeah, no argument here. I was just mentioning that there is some variation.

 

I have some Explosions in the Sky records that are only about 40ish minutes that are double albums, spread across three sides (with one blank/embossed side), but then there's also The King of Limbs by Radiohead, which is a single, double sided release and clocks in at around the same time. And then there's the digital transfers ... which sound like low-volume MP3's being played on an Ancient Egyptian pottery kiln.

That OK hoodie looks pretty cool....

 

I concur. I kinda wish there were straight up T-Shirts though, as I am not much of a hoodie guy.
