Cap'n Jazz's seminal discography Analphabetapolothology is now available on vinyl for the first time, over a decade since the original CD release! As Cap'n Jazz's legacy has grown in popularity, so has demand for a vinyl reissue. This is a package well worth the wait. The double LP, recut from the original high resolution masters and pressed at RTI on 120 gram vinyl, is packaged in a deluxe gatefold jacket with bonus materials including a full size, eight page booklet with unseen photos, fliers, and extensive liner notes by Tim Kinsella. The accompanying high quality digital download of the entire album also includes ten additional songs from the original CD release.
With only one full-length album to their name alongside a handful of singles and compilation tracks, Chicago's Cap'n Jazz left a longstanding impression and irrefutable influence on the region's bohemian punk scene and unwittingly spawned a breeding ground for future scene stars such as the Promise Ring, Joan Of Arc and Owls. Analphabetapolothology compiles twenty-four songs over two LPs and spans the band's entire history. Traces of their sonic fingerprint permeate hundreds of indie records released in their wake.
