Published Jul 01, 2009If you're still waiting to picking up those downright essential Galaxie 500 albums, now is the time. All three studio full-lengths - Today (1988), On Fire (1989) and This Is Our Music (1990) - are getting repressed on high-grade, virgin vinyl, with each physical LP copy being package with a digital download of the album, complete with the Rykodisc bonus tracks and videos.
According to the product description at the official Galaxie 500 store Fiery Breeze, "Vinyl editions are remastered by Alan Douches and Kramer at West West Side Music, cut by Kevin Gray at AcousTech, pressed to virgin vinyl at RTI, and packaged in old-fashioned tip-on style jackets at Stoughton."
There are few buying options and packages available for the repressings - one of which includes a reissue of an original Galaxie 500 T-shirt from 1988 - and orders start shipping out July 6. To avoid the eBay nightmare of trying to track down original copies, just click here, lay down some cash and enjoy.
Thanks to Stereogum for the heads-up.
