(2-LP set) Though listed as the Red House Painters this is, for all intents and purposes, the debut solo record from Mark Kozelek. After a 4 record run for 4AD this album was originally released on the Island subsidiary Supreme. Recorded with a new backing band this is the first Red House Painters record on which Kozelek really let's his rock chops loose, a forerunner to his more recent, critically acclaimed, work with Sun Kil Moon. Alongside brilliant originals are 3 covers, highlighting Kozelek's interpretive skills, of Yes ("Long Distance Runaround"), the Cars ("All Mixed Up"), and Wings ("Silly Love Songs"). on vinyl for the very first time anywhere, 180 gram double LP in a deluxe gatefold package. Received a 9. 0 rating from Pitchfork Media.
