180 Gram Audiophile Virgin Vinyl LP - Sealed
Born in an effort to pay tribute to influential artists and his own desire for self-expression, 4AD owner Ivo Watts-Russell formed the band This Mortal Coil.
The band helped pioneer the more modern 4AD sound of atmospheric, goth-based, electronic popmusic and in the case of This Mortal Coil, applies that sound to favorite folk and rock songs alongside a few instrumental originals.
On the first album, 1984's It'll End In Tears, as would be the This Mortal Coil tradition, Ivo invites manyfriends along for the ride, including label mainstays The Cocteau Twins and Dead Can Dance, combining their unique voices and songwriting talents. Deep reverb washes the guitars as soaring voices drift on beds of string instruments and electronics producing beautiful covers of songs by Tim Buckley, Big Star and Alex Chilton and crafting a truly memorable and influential album in it's own right.
This release has been immaculately re-issued under the watchful eye of band and 4AD founder IvoWatts-Russel. All of the music has been re-mastered from the original master tapes and all of the art is from the original assets by Watts-Russel and his team. The vinyl has been painstakingly pressed o nhigh quality, 180g vinyl by Furnace MFG/Record Industry in Holland. You've never heard It'll End in Tears until you've heard this gem.

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.
