Decked Out Hard Cover Coffee Table Book, Double Colored 180g LP Hybrid featuring Updated Mastering & Lacquers!
Bong Load Records re-visits one of its classic pressings, Richard Thompson's Mock Tudor, with a decked out hard cover coffee table art book and double LP hybrid, second in the Bong Load Book series. This collector's edition features beautiful spreads of newly uncovered and unseen photos from the original Mock Tudor era photo sessions. Some other upgrades in this enhanced time capsule include a high quality 12" x 12" wall art picture print, production notes from producer and mixer Tom Rothrock, an era-correct backstage satin sticky pass from the 1999-2000 world tour and a new old-stock Bong Load Records sticker from 1999. Until now, the only other version of Mock Tudor is a standard double vinyl LP, originally released by Bong Load Records nearly 20 years ago.
Boasting an unencumbered production courtesy of Tom Rothrock and Rob Schnapf which wonderfully frames Richard Thompson's stellar guitar work and songwriting like never before, 1999's beloved Mock Tudor served as the singer/songwriter's final album for Capitol Records and finds him in top form throughout with sterling support from Danny Thompson (bass), Dave Mattacks (drums) and Mitchell Froom (keyboards). "Mock Tudor is a conceptual record inspired by the city of London and particularly, the suburbs of London, which are a kind of desert, a cultural wasteland when you're a kid, growing up and looking for something to do - something interesting, because all the fun's in the middle of town, and you're stuck out in the sticks," explained Thompson.
