First Time on Vinyl Since 1996 / Remastered from the Original Analog Tapes & Pressed on Double Vinyl Courtesy of Third Man Records

Music Industry, 1993: everyone is looking to sign the "next" Nirvana. Atlantic Records found exactly the band they were looking for in the Melvins. Birthed in the Pacific Northwest gloom of Aberdeen that would spawn grunge music and culture, the Melvins were writing songs that were clearly inspired by the right stuff and written for the right people...and they had Nirvana's unequivocal stamp of approval, which meant everything in the early 90's.

For the next four years after their signing, the Melvins would deliver three stellar, influential albums that were criminally only moderately appreciated at the time. In the past 23 years, they've continued onwards with Buzz Osborne, Dale Crover, and a revolving cast of bassists at the helm, cementing themselves as one of the most important American rock bands of all time.

Houdini, Stoner Witch, and Stag have all been out of print on vinyl for over two decades and original copies can command into the three figures in back alley craps games. Third Man Records is proud to reintroduce these titles to the hungry vinyl-buying public, all remastered from original analog tapes, pressed on 180-gram vinyl and given the deluxe, gatefold jacket treatment.

The final studio effort in the Melvins major label span, 1996's Stag finds the band fully spreading their wings (and budget) to create what is arguably their most wide-ranging and diverse collection among the nearly two-dozen full-length studio albums the band has released since 1987.

Features:
• First time on vinyl since 1996
• Portions of the album recorded at the legendary Sound City studios
• Remastered from the original analog tapes
• Album now comfortably spans two discs while original release was crammed onto single disc
• Deluxe gatefold jacket
