Matthew Sweet - Girlfriend (Expanded Edition) [2LP] 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl

This is the vinyl release Matthew Sweet's 1991 classic has always deserved and the best Girlfriend you'll ever have ... Matthew Sweet's essential 1991 power-pop tour-de-force gets its analog due on Intervention's Expanded Edition 180-Gram Double-LP release! Girlfriend's original 1991 LP release was a single LP that simply excised the last three songs that were included on the original 15-track CD release. Those three tracks were a tremendous loss as the song's final, elegiac track ''Nothing Lasts'' was considered as the title track. Intervention's amazing Double LP Expanded Edition restores the original 15-song repertoire to three vinyl sides for maximum bass and dynamics. Side D includes three demo tracks- ''Good Friend,'' ''Superdeformed'' and ''Teenage Female.'' Girlfriend's album art was lovingly restored by Intervention's Art Director Tom Vadakan, and printed as a gorgeous ''Old Style'' gatefold by Stoughton printing in LA. It's printed on heavy stock and film-laminated for superior color depth, beauty and durability. The center labels were printed by Dorado. ''Matthew Sweet's third album is a remarkable artistic breakthrough ... thanks to his exceptional songwriting, the album is a fresh, original interpretation of a classic sound.'' - Stephen Thomas Erlewine, AllMusic.com ''... the holy grail of power pop.'' -Tiny Mix Tapes Mastering Notes 15 of the 18 tracks on this 2x LP Expanded Edition are 100% Analog Mastered from the Original Master Tapes by Ryan K.

Intervention's cut expands the original 15-song repertoire to three vinyl sides for maximum bass and dynamics.
