This is the reason we make records.
When we first started talking about reissuing the Red Red Meat catalog we quickly realized each record was going to need to be expanded to a double LP, and that’s a lot of records. We’d been toying with the idea for a while of trying to recreate one of those old record albums that you find at garage sales or in junk shops that house a collection of 78’s of show tunes, or classical music, and the volume of material we were looking at for this project seemed like the perfect opportunity to see if we could do it. The problem we were faced with was that we didn’t want to make 1,000 8LP books, we wanted to make 100. That being the case the only (insane) reasonable approach was to build all the pieces by hand and assemble them ourselves, so that’s what we did.
Each one of these 114 8LP books was built from the ground up by the Jealous Butcher extended family and members of Red Red Meat. If you click on the album cover above you’ll see some of the steps we took to get there. Fun fact, the binding method we ended up using is called “Chicago style.”
What you get:
• Hand bound hardcover book housing 8LPs
• Records pressed on colored vinyl that is unique to this package
• Specialty library check out cards with artwork from each release
• Digital downloads for each record with additional material not found on the vinyl
• Each book is numbered and has been signed by the band
• Envelope full of ephemera from the history of the band, the making of the books, postcards, photos and other unique items, all unavailable elsewhere.
Once these are gone, they are truly gone, we will not be making more of them. Please get in touch if you have any questions.
