|Comateens First Album
LIMITED COLLECTORS EDITION
This is a very limited Collector's Edition of COMATEENS, the band's self-titled debut album recorded in December 1980, released in 1981 and never before available on CD.
Also Included is a bonus track—the first 1979 recording of "Cool Chick" featuring Ramona Jan on guitar and Harry Viderci on drums, and originally released on a self-produced 7" vinyl single, now extremely rare and hard, if not impossible, to find.
The tracks on this CD were transferred directly from the original master tapes of the album and so capture the true sound of the band at the dawn of the '80s, including any imperfections that might exist on those original tapes.
The CD cover is a replica of the bands first U.S. release on vinyl, and features the iconic photography of Jean Baptiste Mondino. The inside cover presents the design that was used on the European release of the LP and cassette with photos by Joe Stevens. The insert collage, disc, and postcard feature the work of some of our favorite photographers including Chuck Baran, David Baumbach, Laurent Bolognini, Stephanie Chernikowski, Kevin Cummins, Youri Lenquette, Frances Liscio, and Lori Sklar.
We hope you enjoy it!
