Collectable 2002 EP Back in Print for First Time in Years!
Mastered from the Original Master Tapes: Feel the Loose Onstage Presence of Rivers Cuomo and Co.
Released exactly six years after the bands Pinkerton album, The Lion and the Witch was designed as a collectors item. Limited to 25,000 copies on CD, the EP captured Weezer performances from Japan in Spring 2002. In addition to spirited takes of six favorite tunes, the mini-album contains a number of unique characteristics long-prized by fans. And its never been on LP. Until now!
Mastered from the original master tapes and pressed at RTI, Mobile Fidelitys 180g LP presents the music in the best fidelity its ever enjoyed and puts music lovers feet away from Weezers onstage position. Moreover, the celebrated artworkdesigned by Los Angeles-based duo kozyndancan finally be appreciated in large-scale format. In every way, this reissue brings to fans everywhere the EPs myriad simple pleasures for the very first time. Its an ideal and integral part of the ongoing mainstream vinyl resurrection.
Originally expressly intended for indie record stores, The Lion and the Witch lasts just over 25 minutes yet makes up for brevity in terms of fun, looseness, and uniqueness. The band plays the rare instrumental Polynesia before lighting into Dope Nose and commits a few lovable gaffes throughout.
Specifically, leader Rivers Cuomo begins the third verse of El Scorcho too soon and bassist Scott Shriner forgets the words to Holiday, causing his fellow band members to break out in laughter. Warts and all, this hook-ridden affair is a souvenir-worthy snapshot of an excellent pop-rock band relishing in its identity as geeks and goofballs.
Dont pass up the chance to grab this piece of memorabilia. Whether you own this on CD or were never fortunate enough to snag a copy, its never sounded better.
