Artist-Approved Expanded Edition!
1991 Power-Pop Tour-De-Force On SACD!
Mastered Direct-to-DSD From The Original Master Tapes by Ryan K. Smith at Sterling Sound!

This item not eligible for any further discount offers!

Intervention Records is absolutely thrilled to RE-introduce Matthew Sweet's '90s power-pop classic Girlfriend on hybrid CD/SACD.

Matthew Sweet's essential 1991 power-pop tour-de-force gets its high-res due on Intervention's Expanded Edition release. In addition to including the original CD release's 15 tracks, this hybrid CD/SACD includes three demo tracks not included on the original release- "Good Friend", "Superdeformed" and "Teenage Female".

15 of the 18 tracks on this Expanded Edition are mastered Direct-to-DSD from the Original Analog Master Tapes by Ryan K. Smith at Sterling Sound. The last three tracks are Matthew Sweet's own demo DAT recordings and therefore mastered to DSD from digital files from the DAT masters. Intervention's amazing new Girlfriend is presented with maximum bass and dynamics. There are big, fat guitar tones and controlled but very expressive bass and a massive soundstage. Girlfriend is not only a 90's classic but an amazingly pure and simply tremendous rock recording!

The album art is beautifully restored by IR's Tom Vadakan and housed in a super jewel box.

... the holy grail of power pop.
