I vote that if they press this, I should get a free copy because that's my band's demo tape on the cover. I gave a few copies to Glenn after my very old band played with them circa Sun Dials. Apparently they had more copies than they needed. Obviously they added the "Alkaline Trio" to the tape. Mike Felumlee even admitted it to our old guitar player when he first joined the band. I never bought a copy of this release as I had all the source material anyway.

Pressing a vinyl version of a collection album isn't stupid, especially in this case. It would cost so fucking much money to get all of those things separately on vinyl. And really, I'd rather have them all on one record anyway than have all the 12" EP's, 7"s, and comps that they're originally from.

The s/t was the first AK3 cd I really got into back when it came out. And I think it's pretty much their most solid material. Well, really I think "I Lied My Face Off" is their most solid material... that and "Maybe I'll Catch Fire". But everything on the s/t is great.

The S/T wasn't a compilation of vinyl-only music. Look:

from I Lied My Face Off (CD/12")

1. Goodbye Forever

2. This Is Getting Over You

3. Bleeder

4. I Lied My Face Off

from Magnetic Curses compilation (CD only)

5. My Friend Peter

from For Your Lungs Only (CD/7")

6. Snake Oil Tanker

7. Southern Rock

8. Cooking Wine

9. For Your Lungs Only

from Pocket Bomb compilation (CD only)

10. Exploding Boy

from Sun Dials (7")

11. Sun Dials

12. Nose Over Tail

from Marc's A Dick And Gar's A Drunk compilation (CD/LP)

13. '97

Only two of the 13 songs were vinyl-only.

+1

Thanks for typing that up, I've always wondered.
