The live album recorded at Galaxie 500’s final European show — Dec. 1, 1990 in Copenhagen — will be reissued in a special 2LP vinyl edition for Record Store Day, with its nine songs stretched over three sides and a special etching filling out the fourth side of the vinyl.
This is the dream pop act’s first release of Copenhagen on vinyl, and it will be available at participating retailers in both the U.S. and the U.K. on Record Store Day. It also features new cover artwork. The etching on Side 4 of the vinyl is by tattoo artist Matt Crocker, according to the product description.
