  • Honeirsil
Definitely one of the best buys out there. Such a quiet record, airy and distinct sounds, Rhino records has done well with their master pressings. For an incredible press, well worth the money, and will appreciate in price well.
  • Coron
Someone in the US please sell me this for a fair price
  • Andriodtargeted
Sound quality of the vinyl press is awesome. Totally worth the money. Can we please get Cracker to use this engineering team to reissue Kerosene Hat on vinyl.
  • Negal
I'd do anything for that!blah blah ten words blah blah
  • Pryl
Wow the asking price for this seems to have more than doubled overnight. Stupid RSD, don't know why it had to be so limited.
  • Manesenci
Just bought the record at one of their shows. Vinyl is an orange-pinkish splatter. Don't think it's been added to Discogs yet. Got it signed and everything!
  • Jek
Yes, they are touring right now as they did some concerts close to where I live in Southern California. There have been rumors of a second pressing and maybe there are plans to release a splatter or even a version without the 7".
what?? are you saying they still play and tour? no way!
  • BlackHaze
Finally scored a copy of this puppy - without paying through the wazoo. I am thankful! I haven't heard this puppy in 15ish years but many of the tracks have been cycling in my brain ever since. Forgotten awesome track: Saint Joe on the School Bus - "Aunt Mary, Aunt Mary!" such a good song. And of course, on of my faves: 'opium' - "bluuueeeee , like water.." For some reason I always loved this album and remember playing guitar along to the tracks. Record sounds great!
  • Lanadrta
The flowers on the inside of the jacket sleeve are wonderful. Made my day even more than finally having my favorite album from the 90s on vinyl.
  • Āłł_Ÿøūrš
The LP is amazing, but the bonus 7" was cut terribly for my copy. The lead-in groove has blobs of melted vinyl on most of it so the needle can mostly only be dropped right as Hallelujah begins. There's also a scuff on that track. Despite all that, the 7" pressing still sounds fairly decent. Curious if anyone else had any issues with the bonus 7"?
  • Sagda
Mine sounds excellent, no complaints. Contact the label and see if they can issue a replacement for you.
  • Wilalmaine
Glad to know the pressing quality is good. Usually with RTI there's no problem whatsoever. The album was not available for the Record Store Day in the country where I live unfortunately but I won't pay a silly amount of money for it since it was mastered from a 1630 tape which means it is represented in 44KHz/16bits just like a regular CD so I'll be impressed if that vinyl is superior. Anyways there's apparently a normal release without the bonus 7" on its way.
  • Mikarr
That's indeed possible, yes. Back in the late '90s it was super common to record on 2" and store the final mix on DAT.
One person said it was recorded on tube equipment on a 2" tape.
  • Vizil
I saw that on their Facebook page. Someone asked the label.
  • Legionstatic
Yes, I'd love to see a source on that information as well.
  • Qane
Where did you find out about a supposed normal release coming out?
  • Garr
Absolutely beautiful quality pressing. Sound is clean, artwork is nice, and the flowery inner jacket is just the best finishing touch. Do not hesitate to pick this up (for a fair price of course)
  • Mr.Champions
I went and purchased my copy in store for $24.99
  • Milleynti
What's the current price if you purchased in store vs. online?
  • sergant
Sounds fantastic. Super excited to pick this limited release up.
