Weezer The Lion And The Witch Limited Numbered Mobile Fidelity 180g LP

Overview
Weezer The Lion and the Witch on numbered limited edition 180-gram LP; only 3,000 copies

Live, limited-edition set never-before released on vinyl

Mastered from the original master tapes

Released exactly six years after the band's Pinkerton album, The Lion and the Witch was designed as a collector's item. Limited to 25,000 copies on CD, the EP captures Weezer performances from Japan in Spring 2002. In addition to spirited takes of six favorite tunes, the mini-album contains a number of unique characteristics long-prized by fans. And it's never been on LP. Until now.

Mastered from the original master tapes and pressed at RTI, Mobile Fidelity's 180-gram LP presents the music in the best fidelity it's ever enjoyed and puts music lovers feet away from Weezer's onstage position. Moreover, the celebrated artwork-designed by Los Angeles-based duo kozyndan-can finally be appreciated in large-scale format. In every way, this reissue brings to fans everywhere the EP's myriad simple pleasures for the very first time. It's an ideal and integral part of the ongoing mainstream vinyl resurrection.

Originally expressly intended for indie record stores, The Lion and the Witch lasts just over 25 minutes yet makes up for brevity in terms of fun, looseness, and uniqueness. The band plays the rare instrumental "Polynesia" before lighting into "Dope Nose" and commits a few lovable gaffes throughout.

Specifically, leader Rivers Cuomo begins the third verse of "El Scorcho" too soon and bassist Scott Shriner forgets the words to "Holiday," causing his fellow band members to break out in laughter. Warts and all, this hook-ridden affair is a souvenir-worthy snapshot of an excellent pop-rock band relishing in its identity as geeks and goofballs.
