Remastered and Cut at 45RPM 2LP
"2018 is a milestone year for the Posies - we began our career exactly 30 years prior by releasing a home-recorded cassette called "Failure," which to our complete surprise became an instant favorite around the Northwest, earning us critical accolades, radio airplay, and major label interest all in a very short time. We were lucky to find ourselves living just a few doors down the road in Seattle from Arthur "Rick" Roberts and Mike Musburger, who agreed to join our band on bass and drums, respectively.
"Signed to Geffen Records, we recorded our second album "Dear 23," and toured the US, including support tours for both Redd Kross and the Replacements. [Our] albums on Geffen remain beloved by our fans; our most popular, most often cited, most requested works. However, over the years, the CDs have been in and out of print, there have been inconsistent presences on streaming, the LPs either long out of print or not issued at all depending on the territory. Good news: all that's about to change. "Dear 23," "Frosting on the Beater" & "Amazing Disgrace" will be re-issued on the audiophile LP format via our favorite label, Omnivore Recordings.
"Dear 23" will now stretch across two LPs and will be mastered at 45 RPM. We made the decision to stick to just the original albums for the vinyl release, and give it room to breathe across two glorious slabs of wax." - The Posies
