Dear 23 (45 RPM) (Pre-Order)The Major Label Debut From Alternative/Power Popsters
2x Vinyl Cut At 45 RPM And Pressed At R.T.I.
Remastered From Original Tapes
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 fi nd 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 U.S., including support tours for both Redd Kross and The Replacements.
These three 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. Dear 23 on CD came out in the early days of the format, and the older CDs are not exactly true to the analog masters the albums were made on.
Good news: all that’s about to change. Dear 23 will be re-issued by Omnivore Recordings (who have, among many releases new and old, reissued our first album Failure plus releases by Big Star, Game Theory, etc).
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.LP 1

Key Lime PieIncludes 45 RPM Bonus Track “Closing Theme!” On Side D (Plays From The Center Groove)
Includes New Liners And Photos
Camper Van Beethoven signed with Virgin Records in 1988 and delivered a record that defied those who thought the band might “sell out.” The band returned the following year with what most deem their masterpiece— Key Lime Pie.
Omnivore Recordings is excited to reissue Camper Van Beethoven’s Virgin Records output, including 1989’s classic, Key Lime Pie.
Once again produced by Dennis Herring (Elvis Costello, Counting Crows), Key Lime Pie continued the journey into the world of CVB, but with higher production value and sound than had been heard before. From a track about Jack Ruby to a cover of Status Quo’s “Pictures Of Matchstick Men”, Key Lime Pie was a slice above the rest and a fitting dessert for the 1980s.
The nearly hourlong album was originally pressed on one LP, but Omnivore has expanded it to two LPs (for better sound) and added a bonus track to Side D.
Includes new liners and photos. Presented as they should be, they will delight fans and educate those who have only read about the importance of this record. Key Lime Pie is both sweet and tart, but Key Lime Pie is an essential component to any musical meal.LP 1
