Dischord announces: “Due to the renewed interest in vinyl LPs Dischord Records is remastering and re-cutting much of our vinyl catalog here in the United States. We will begin by re-pressing current titles, and later re-issuing others…” The vinyl will come with the now routine MP3 download coupon.
The bad news: a very, very small price increase. “This move will coincide with a small but long overdue price increase (from $10 to $11 on Dischord 12″ LPs and from $8 to $9 for 12″ EPs) that will begin with newly pressed titles and extend to all titles in January 2009,” the label reports. Still pretty damn reasonable. Can you think of cheaper prices?
Dischord’s news of vinyl reissues promises to be the first of several in the coming months. The following albums are now available in new vinyl editions:
Minor Threat Out of Step 12″ EP (now on 45 rpm, new cover from original drawings, black vinyl)
Minor Threat First 2 7 inches 12″ EP (now on 45 rpm, new yellow cover, black vinyl)
Faith/Void Split LP (on purple vinyl)
One Last Wish 1986 (first time on LP!)
