The Pietasters



Moon Ska MR059 CD, released 1995

Asbestos/Underground Communique ASB/UCR072 LP, released 2012

Shattered World SW001 LP, released 2012

Classic Pietasters.  Solid album throughout.  This was the Pietasters' first release on Moon Ska.  For years, it has only available in CD form.  This is about to change.  In 2012, it was released on vinyl for the first time as a joint effort between Asbestos Records, Underground Communique, and others (including my new label, Shattered World Records).  There were 197 pressed on blue vinyl and 292 on black vinyl.  Of the 292 black copies, 50 comprise the Shattered World Edition of the record.  These are all stamped and hand-numbered.

If you buy the original disc, be forewarned - there is no division between the third and fourth tracks ("Tell You Why" and " Maggie Mae"), so the track numbering is off.  I heard this actually pissed off the band quite a bit.  The album was later included on the 1992-1996 anthology.
