Codeine When I See The Sun: Complete Recordings on Limited Edition 6LP + 3CD Box Set

Seminal Slowcore Progenitor's Sub Pop Albums Reissued as a Limited Edition 6LP/3CD Box Set!

All Three Album's Have Been Restored from the Original Masters & Come Complete w/ Additional Singles, Demos, Live Recordings and Peel Sessions!

Limited to 3000 Copies!

From 1990-1994, New York City's Codeine were making somnambulant waves on a musical landscape reeling from Sub Pop's better known exports. 1991's Frigid Stars, 1992's Barely Real, and 1994's The White Birch received much critical praise upon release, but Codeine dissolved before any of that hype would carry Low, Bedhead, and the Red House Painters to international acclaim.

All three albums will be subjected to Numero's notoriously elaborate packaging and detailed liner notes, including essays by Sub Pop's Jonathan Poneman, Love Child's Alan Licht, and the Flaming Lips' Wayne Coyne and Steven Drozd. The albums have been faithfully restored from the original masters, and are accompanied by a plethora of singles, demos, live recordings, and Peel sessions.

Each album will be packaged as a double album with a CD of the same material. Additionally, this ultra deluxe box set of all three albums entitled When I See The Sun is available in a in a limited edition of 1000 copies. The box set features no additional tracks, but does come with a 5" x 1" fold out poster of the band's complete discography and a tidy box that holds all three albums National Geographic-style.

In support of this great undertaking, Codeine’s original line-up of Stephen Immerwahr, John Engle, and Chris Brokaw will be reuniting for a handful of dates in the US and Europe, including All Tomorrow’s Parties in both London and Japan, and Primavera in Spain.
