on Tue, 04/12/2011 - 14:02

According to Transparency, the seminal LAFMS compilation Blorp-Essette, will be reissued June 2011.  Featuring artwork by Don Van Vliet (aka Captain Beefheart) made especially for the records that came out in 1977 and 1980, this 4 CD set compiles the original records and expands the original release by adding two hours of unreleased material!.  Transparency originally released the CD set in 1999 and it's been out of print for many years.  This reissue enhances the sound with a fresh mastering job by noted sound sculptor Echo Wanderer.  A 30 page booklet is packed with information about each track and includes artworks and essays by original compiler Ace Farren Ford.  Copies will be available for sale at the store.

For a full track listing, check out the Discogs entry (and be sure to check out the collector's prices for out of print copies of the original 1999 release).
