JANDEK VINYL BOX SET – RSD 2013
"Three essential JANDEK recordings from one of the most respected but least heard artists of our time.
The outsider masterpiece "Chair Beside A Window" (1982),
the haunting and lonely "Six and Six" (1981),
and the murky and delicate debut "Ready For The House" (1978).
Jandek’s past three decades of intense productivity have created 72 releases, yielded a depth of discussion amongst critics and fans, a feature length documentary, and only a smattering of live performances. Tribute CDs featuring Bright Eyes, Low and Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, Mountain Goats help to illustrate Jandek’s influence on today’s artists. No amount of time or experience can prepare a listener for the experience of Jandek.
Working in direct collaboration with Corwood Industries, Jackpot Records is thrilled to offer this heavyweight vinyl edition box set for Record Store Day 2013. Limited to 500 hand numbered copies. Includes three exclusive posters and insert.
