Exciting news came from Secretly Canadian last week: a 10th anniversary edition of the Magnolia Electric Co. album is due for release on November 12th.
That label is offering the reissue in three different formats: double CD, double LP with a 10″ bonus, and then a combination of those two, which also comes with a t-shirt. All three versions include the original album, acoustic demos that were only available in the first 1,000 copies of the original CD release, plus two new studio recordings: “The Big Game is Every Night,” previously available on the Japanese release of the album only, and a never-before-heard version of “Whip Poor Will,” which ended up on Josephine in a different form.
Pre-orders are being taken by Secretly Canadian now. To sweeten the deal, they’re adding a download code redeemable as soon as you place the order.
I’ve said it before, I think this is one of the best rock ‘n’ roll albums released in the last 10 or 15 years, and it’s one of my favorite albums period. Having all the extras in one place is just icing on the cake. I can’t recommend it enough.
