Grandaddy: Under The Western Freeway – 20th Anniversary Reissue (1 Yellow, 1 Blue Vinyl | LTD Copies)

This vinyl-only reissue features a gatefold jacket with two pieces of colored vinyl: one featuring the original record, as it was intended, and the other an eight-song collection of demos from 1997, never before released.

The demo LP includes sketches of songs that became fan favorites, like “Bjork ELO Xanadu and the Birth of Chartsengrafs” (which would make its debut on the band’s groundbreaking follow-up, the Sophtware Slump) and the fan-favorite “For The Dishwasher.” The deluxe package is complete with a booklet of personal band photographs, flyers from the era, and liner notes by Gruff Rhys of Super Furry Animals.
