Old 97s Hitchhike to Rhome Limited Translucent Orange Vinyl 2LP Set + Download

The Old 97ís burst onto the alt-country scene in 1994 with their independently released debut, Hitchhike To Rhome. With subsequent albums on Bloodshot, Elektra, New West, and ATO Records, the quartet became one of the Americana genreís most enduring bands. To celebrate this anniversary, Omnivore Recordings will reissue Hitchhike, the bandís first album, with an expanded release on 2CD and - for the first time Ė on 2LP. When band member and set co-producer Ken Bethea was revisiting the original tapes for this reissue, he discovered a treasure trove of eight extra tracks cut at the album sessions - many of which the band hadnít even remembered recording. It seemed the perfect time to bring those previously unissued songs to light and add the tracks from their first four-song demo cassette to round out the early picture of the 97ís. The 2CD contains the original album, coupled with a second disc of those 12 rare and unreleased tracks, many mixed from the original multi-tracks for the first time by longtime Old 97ís engineer Rip Rowan. The 2LP (limited edition first pressing on translucent orange vinyl) features the LP on three sides with six of the recently unearthed tracks on Side 4. The download card included gives the buyer the complete 2CD program. Both formats include rare photos, memorabilia and notes from Bethea. The entire album has been remixed from original session tapes by Rip Rowan.
