Artist-Approved 180g 2LP Expanded Edition: Original Album on 33 1/3 RPM & 7 Bonus Tracks on 45 RPM 

100% Analog Mastered from the Original Analog Master Tapes by Ryan K. Smith at Sterling Sound

Intervention Records and Matthew Sweet are proud to introduce the new Artist-Approved reissue series, Matthew Sweet 1991-1995! In 2018 Intervention is releasing 2LP Expanded Editions of Sweet's 90's power-pop trilogy, Girlfriend, Altered Beast and 100% Fun, plus the Son of Altered Beast 7-song EP, which is appearing on vinyl for the very first time. Each Expanded Edition is loaded with bonus tracks that are either appearing on vinyl for the very first time or seeing their official release for the very first time. And for Sweet completists, these LPs are the most extensive collection of extra tracks compiled and packaged with the studio albums the songs were recorded for!

All four LPs are 100% analog mastered from the original analog master tapes by Ryan K. Smith at Sterling Sound. The ultra-quiet 180g LPs are pressed at boutique press, RTI in Camarillo, CA. The jacket art for the reissues have been faithfully restored by IR's art director Tom Vadakan. The Girlfriend, Altered Beast and 100% Fun Expanded Editions will also be released as hybrid CD/SACDs. These discs play in all CD and SACD players and are mastered from the original analog master tapes Direct-to-DSD and will feature very analog-like sound. They will be housed in super jewel boxes.

1995's 100% Fun is the third leg of Matthew Sweet's holy trinity of power pop! Produced by Brendan O'Brien, it's a densely-layered production full of grinding guitars, heavy bass lines and big drum sounds. Intervention's 19-track Expanded Edition 2LP set is the defining presentation of this great album! While the original repertoire's 12 tracks are bigger and better than ever, the 7 bonus tracks are on their own 12" 45 RPM LP. 100% Fun's album art was lovingly restored and printed as a gorgeous "Old Style" gatefold by Stoughton printing in LA. It's printed on heavy stock and film-laminated for superior color depth, beauty and durability. The center labels are printed by Dorado.

Mastering Notes:
The master tapes are 30ips 1/2" analog reels, and the seven bonus tracks are on their own reel. Intervention's cut is big, punchy and dynamic with plenty of producer Brendan O'Brien's signature crunch completely intact. Matthew's amazing vocals really shine here amid the layered densities of O'Brien's mix. A big, bold improvement over the 1990s original LP, and so much better than the CD as to make that comparison a total farce.
