Counting Crows' 1993 debut album released for the first time as an LP in the U.S.!
Double album cut at 45 RPM, plated and pressed by Quality Record Pressings — four sides maximize the recording's dynamic range
Mastered by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound
Counting Crows put in the gigging hours during the early days of the band, and it paid off. By the time they signed to Geffen in 1993, they had already built up a significant fanbase. Their debut, August and Everything After, produced by T-Bone Burnett, was released later the same year and became an unexpected multi-platinum hit, partly as a result of the successful single "Mr. Jones."
Although recorded to audio tape, the album was originally mastered for CD and featured a longer playing time than a standard LP. Thus Analogue Productions has reissued August and Everything After as a double LP set to maximize the dynamic range of this recording. This is the first time that the 'Crows multi-platinum smash has been released in the U.S. as an LP. Mastered by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound.

Customer Reviews for August And Everything After (Out of Stock)
Well, New Zealand still isn't in the country list,but I have my copies and the vinyl leaves the CD for dead.
Linn bearing and sub platter in a customized three armed plinth with linn motor in remote housing. DL103PRO in a very new Jelco 750D through a nait 5i-2 and stageline 's'.
Some lucky person will get a copy as a prize at our next vinyl fair.

I don't know whether the masters exist in the analogue domain, or whether this is a digital source. One thing I know for sure, is the CD mix down is clipped in the digital domain ( rip it with Adobe Audition or Audacity, and have a look) and compressed. I have TWO copies of the vinyl here on order. One as a prize for a vinyl fair where I emcee/ DJ. The music is brilliant, the engineering was indifferent. I await with baited breath.
Also New Zealand is not available in the country list, so I used my Summer residence in Arcadia, so I could at least post.

Vinyl records are able to capture the purest quality of recorded music in
true form. This is possible because the initial recording is captured on an
analog source (usually tape) for the ultimate in High Fidelity sound, it is
then pressed onto virgin vinyl. Analog recordings capture the bottom end
(or bass) while adding sweetness to the high end (or treble) better than any
digital recording ever could. Analog systems are still commonly used before
they are digitally transferred to CD. This means that the sound then is
altered in the transfer process when CD's are produced. The word fidelity
means accuracy and faithfulness. High Fidelity sound is faithful to the
original sound made by the artist, capturing maximum accuracy of what was
intended for the listener to hear. Vinyl records capture those sounds for
the ultimate High Fidelity listening experience!
180/200 GRAM Vinyl LP
These vinyl records are produced with 180 or 200 grams of high definition premium grade virgin vinyl. This is a higher quality audiophile pressing than the typical vinyl record of 100-120 grams. These limited edition LP's are manufactured with the hi-fi enthusiast in mind. A 180 or 200 gram LP is sometimes also referred to as an audiophile pressing, there is a higher bass response and an even warmer High Fidelity sound. 180 or 200 grams LP's are typically manufactured in limited amounts and are considered collectables, commanding a higher price.
Typically, a vinyl reissue is a repressing of an original LP, usually extracted from the recording's master-tapes. In some cases, reissues are remastered to lower surface noise and improve overall sonics. Reissues help preserve the music of an original recording, especially when original LPs become unavailable or can no longer be found. Reissues can be pressed on a variety of thickness from 150 gram to 200 gram and offer a great opportunity for records collectors to own many classic recordings.
