Published Jun 10, 2015Eric's Trip's 1993 full-length Love Tara holds a special place in many '90s-loving alt-rock fans' hearts, but it's pretty hard to track down a copy on vinyl. Twenty-two years after the record's initial release, Sub Pop has announced it's given its first-ever Canadian signees' proper full-length debut a fresh vinyl pressing.
The announcement was made late this afternoon (June 10). Though an official ETA has yet to be determined, the label has put up a pre-order for a limited "Loser" edition of Love Tara through its web store. Once the as-yet-undetailed colour variant is gone, the reissue will be available on traditional black wax. This appears to be a straight-up repress, and it includes a download code.
News of the reissue, which goes for $15 USD, will be a boon for wax hunters looking to track down an affordable copy of Love Tara. Original copies are currently being priced around the $100 mark on resale sites like Discogs.
Love Tara followed a series of cassette releases, the Peter EP and a couple vinyl singles, and introduced the Moncton, NB outfit's blend of fuzzy, punked-up anthems and ruminative, lo-fi experiments to a wider audience. It was the first of three LPs they'd issue through Sub Pop before breaking up in 1996.
