In mid-summer of 2008 AUM Fidelity had a reasoning session with Shortwave Records of Madison, Wisconsin regarding an exclusive vinyl edition of this beautiful album. And here it is! The folks at Shortwave did a beautiful job; well up to AUM standards. Double LP set audiophile quality pressed on 180 gram black vinyl. Hand silk-screened gatefold sleeve features all-new inspired artwork on 3 panels with William Parker's full liner notes on the inside 4th. This is a strictly limited one-time vinyl pressing in a hand-numbered edition of 500. -SJ
