Hellcat 80405-1 LP, released 2019 (U.S.)

In 1997, The Pietasters answered the call of the Hellcat, and jumped ship from Moon Ska. Willis was their first effort for the new label. It was also, believe it or not, their first album that appeared on vinyl. Willis was the most commercially successful album for The Pietasters. One ould hear "Out All Night" on the radio in 1997-98. It was a strange time. The original black vinyl is still easy to find and mostly inexpensive. Despite that, it was re-pressed in 2019 on orange vinyl in conjuntion with Record Store Day. The re-press was limited to 1,300.
