Vinyl Films Assists Pearl Jam Ten Reissue

Comments Off

pearljamsuperdeluxe

This is amazing news! My two favorite things combining forces. Here’s an excerpt from the press release.

Ten, the debut album that sold 12 million copies and introduced the world to Pearl Jam in 1991, will be reissued in four (4) new and expanded editions. Pre-orders of the Super Deluxe Edition begin today, through the Ten Club at PearlJam.com. All four editions will be available for purchase on March 24, 2009. The reissue of Ten serves as the launch of a planned two-year catalogue re-release campaign leading up to the band’s 20th anniversary in 2011.

Each Ten package will include two versions of the album: the remastered version of the original album PLUS an accompanying remixed version done by the band’s long-time producer, Brendan O’Brien (Bruce Springsteen, AC/DC, Audioslave). Details on specific extras for each of the four packages are listed below.

“The band loved the original mix of Ten, but were also interested in what it would sound like if I were to deconstruct and remix it,” says producer Brendan O’Brien. “The original Ten sound is what millions of people bought, dug and loved, so I was initially hesitant to mess around with that. After years of persistent nudging from the band, I was able to wrap my head around the idea of offering it as a companion piece to the original – giving a fresh take on it, a more direct sound.”

TEN RE-DESIGN

Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament, who served as the art director for the original Ten packaging, reprised his role for the reissues collaborating with designer, Andy Fischer, of Cameron Crowe’s Vinyl Films (Into the Wild soundtrack LP, Vanilla Sky soundtrack LP, Harold and Maude anniversary edition soundtrack LP).

“The goal was to assemble the ultimate fan-piece,” explains Fischer. “Something Pearl Jam lovers could pore over as they experience an indelible record all over again, in an entirely new way.”

“The original concept was about really being together as a group and entering into the world of music as a true band…a sort of all-for-one deal,” says Jeff Ament. “There were some elements of the original Ten artwork that didn’t turn out the way we had hoped, due to time constraints. With this reissue, we’ve been able to take our time and invest resources into making the design the way we had originally intended.”

“From 10-minute, three-guitar jams, to heartbreaking acoustic ballads, April shines with the most evocative music of Kozelek’s career.”- Jonathan Cohen, Billboard

“Mark Kozelek returns with an album of rare warmth and immediacy, where intensely personal lyrics hang on hazily magnificent melodies.”- Aidin Vaziri, San Francisco Chronicle

“April”, the new album from Sun Kil Moon, is Mark Kozelek’s first original record since the acclaimed 2003 Sun Kil Moon debut “Ghosts Of The Great Highway”.

11 songs at almost 74 minutes, “April” is a collection of songs recorded between March and August 2007 in San Francisco (Hyde Street Studios) and Seattle (Well Recording). In the spirit of Sun Kil Moon’s “Ghosts” and “Tiny Cities”, Mark was joined by the same players as before,including drummer Anthony Koutsos (Red House Painters), bassist Geoff Stanfield (Black Lab), violist Michi Aceret, and percussionist David Revelli. “April” also finds Mark in the company of guest vocalists Bonnie Prince Billy, Ben Gibbard, and Eric Pollard (Retribution Gospel Choir).

Vinyl Films Records Goes Into The Wild

Comments Off

intothewildfrontcover

Monkeywrench/Vinyl Films Records is proud to release the limited edition vinyl version of the soundtrack to the film adaptation of Jon Krakauer’s best-selling book, Into the Wild on January 15, 2008.

“I had structured my screenplay dependant on song accompaniment to both visceral and storytelling components,” says Into the Wild writer and director Sean Penn. “It was during the shooting of the film that Eddie Vedder’s voice as singer and songwriter came to mind as the right voice for this movie. Within a month of his accepting the request, these great and moving songs poured out of him. No other voice flows, bleeds, or rejoices the young American’s land and heart so passionately as Vedder’s. His contribution not only raises the impact of the film considerably, but I believe will be an indelible collection independently. Put it in the time capsule under ‘Road companions’”.

Eddie Vedder’s Music for the Motion Picture Into the Wild was initially released digitally and in compact disc format on September 18 — debuting at #2 on the Billboard Soundtrack chart and #11 on the Billboard Top 200 and to many accolades. The vinyl version includes an exclusive, extended version of the album track “The Wolf”, a bonus 7” single with both studio and live versions of the track “No More”, a 28-page full color booklet with lyrics, and exclusive liner notes by Director Sean Penn. Extremely limited copies will be available at retail outlets on January 29th, 2008.

Harold and Maude Vinyl Release

The amazing soundtrack for Harold and Maude is finally coming on vinyl courtesy of Vinyl Films Records. Details below.

“What was interesting was, I’d done that project, I’d kind of put it behind me. But then, over the years it’s just taken on so much importance. It’s a milestone, and a part of people’s memories, which they love… and I love it too. Other things disappear or assume smaller proportions. Harold and Maude just gets better and means more and more. It’s the rarest thing. A film that gets better with age.”

-Yusuf

Finally.

The never-before-released soundtrack to the masterpiece Hal Ashby film.

Vinyl Films Records and Caldo Verde Records are proud to announce the vinyl debut of Mark Kozelek’s two limited edition live albums, White Christmas Live and Little Drummer Boy Live. The former, released in 2001 in a limited pressing of 5000 CDs, contains such Red House Painters classics as “Things Mean A Lot” and “Cruiser” along with AC/DC covers “What’s Next To The Moon” and “Up To My Neck In You.” Little Drummer Boy Live, released in 2006, marries such Sun Kil Moon greats as “Salvador Sanchez” and “Carry Me Ohio” with Modest Mouse covers “Tiny Cities” and “Trucker’s Atlas,” as well as the previously unreleased “Moorestown” and “Unlit Hallway.” Both releases are now compiled in one 4-LP boxed set, with the box including the vinyl-only bonus track “Have You Forgotten.” White Christmas Live has been long out of print on CD, and Little Drummer Boy Live is rapidly on its way as well.
