Hey, record nerd! Yes, you. We've got something for you which you're going to like.
32-page full color booklet, original art, English/French lyrics, audio re-mastering by Dave Cooley (the genius engineer behind LITA’s reissue of Histoire de Melody Nelson), and extensive liner notes, featuring an exclusive interview with the lovely and graceful Birkin who helps to provide new insight on this landmark album. The vinyl release is pressed on 180 gram vinyl, and includes a thick gatefold, liner notes, lyrics, plus bonus picture sleeve 7” single featuring the non-album cut “La Chanson de Slogan” b/w “Orang Outan.”Holy merde! But here's the best part. End Hits has a copy to give away to one lucky reader—and that could be you. Here's how to enter: Just leave a comment telling us your favorite record to put on when things get all seductive and sexy-like. Is it Barry White? Is it Ravel's "Bolero"? Is it "Yakety Sax"? Let us know! Over-sharing is encouraged. We'll pick our favorite comment, or just pick a lucky winner at random.
This is a good one—believe us, we thought long and hard about how to rig this so we'd end up with the copy. Alas, it must go to you, the readers. We'll keep comments open until noon on Wednesday. Winners must live in the US (the record label will mail you the vinyl directly). Go to it!
