Camper Van Beethoven’s ‘Sweetheart,’ ‘Key Lime Pie’ due for expanded reissues

Camper Van Beethoven

Omnivore Recordings next month will reissue seminal college-rock act Camper Van Beethoven’s two major-label albums — 1988’s Our Beloved Revolutionary Sweetheart, featuring “Eye of Fatima,” and 1989’s Key Lime Pie, with its hit cover of Status Quo’s “Pictures of Matchstick Men” — in expanded CD versions and on 180-gram vinyl.

Due out Feb. 11, the new CD editions of CVB’s Virgin Records releases are stocked with bonus tracks.

The CD reissue of Our Beloved Revolutionary Sweetheart features 11 additional tracks, including a half-dozen live cuts. Key Lime Pie features nine extra tracks, including demos and live versions, including an in-concert take on the classic “Take the Skinheads Bowling.”

While Sweetheart’s vinyl release features no bonus material, the Key Lime Pie pressing is split across two LPs for the first time, with a bonus track, “Closing Theme (Guitar Hero),” appearing on Side 4, which is a 45 rpm side that plays from the inner groove out.

See full tracklists below; pre-orders are now being taken via Omnivore.

Camper Van Beethoven last year released a brand-new studio album, La Costa Perdida.
