Lonesome Crowded West

56 posts in this topic

Hey dudes,

So I waiting a long ass time in the cold California night last night after the Pomona show to get some vinyl signed.  After I got my record signed I asked Isaac Brock if we were going to get a Lonesome Crowded West reissue anytime soon.  He told me that they have wanted to repress it for years but had not been able to locate the original masters, so they had to go back and remaster the entire thing completely from scratch.  He said it was all done now and it should be OUT IN FOUR MONTHS.  

 

Very exciting news, I hope this ends up being accurate.  It was told to me by a very drunk and freshly tattooed Isaac Brock.

 

Incidentally, here was the set list from last night:

Although, luckily they also played "Trailer Trash," "Custom Concern" and "3rd Planet" which weren't on the printed set list, I think they were audience call outs.

 

And to help verify the story and to show off a little, the records I got signed:

I was listening to LCW yesterday and hoping this news would come soon.

 

Did you see the short documentary on it? It was amazing and made me fall in love with the album all over again!

Yep, I love both the Pitchfork one and the original Up Records one. I wish the Pitchfork one went through the album song by song instead of just selecting random songs but whatever. It was amazing.

Great News, thanks for posting!

Any mention of "Long Drive..." or any of the other ones that weren't done with the reissues?

 

Anyways, thanks!

I didn't even think to ask about Long Drive because I already have it.  It didn't occur to me until I had already walked away that a shitload of people would want to know that as well.  Sorry.

^I imagine both will be released at once. Weren't they only having problems with LCW?

It's all in different parts. I love the Chris Takino and Doug Martsch interviews. Some stuff will be familiar since you watched the Pitchfork one.

This is way rad! Still looking for the missing twin to my copy of LCW. I have the A/B record but the C/D jacket (maybe vice versa, I forget). It's out there somewhere...

This is interesting. I assumed that when I heard that the masters were missing that this included all original recordings of the songs but apparently they've found the tapes for each individual track and compiled them again into a new master recording? I'm confused but not skeptical. If they actually put that kind of work in instead of just cutting from a CD (which is unforgivable) like a lot of major labels seem to be doing, then that is awesome!

Also, I saw them on Saturday and they didn't play Dramamine or Cowboy Dan, which is a bummer. However they did play Shit Luck and I Came As A Rat which was amazing.

So psyched for a reissue! Just got c/d of the 2xLP in the mail. Can't complain though because it was free. Some pretty damn good songs on the second LP. Also got Long Drive with it (both LP's). It's a good weekend.
