Animals And Me

by Spare Snare

  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    Ok, we know these are expensive, and we don't expect to sell or make many, but with feedback from yourselves, and because we quite like the idea of seeing this on vinyl, we thought we should do them.

    This is the complete Animals And Me album on two hand lathe cut discs with two additional tracks.

    The album, as you know it, is on Sides 1, 2 and 3, while on side 4, there are two unreleased mixes by Andy Rogers of I'll Get By and If I had A Hi-Fi which were mixed done at the time of recording.
    These two versions were actually only found recently on a 'lost' CDR.
    Please note the two additional tracks will not be available on the download.

    Disc 1 (sides 1 and 2) shall be on clear vinyl, while Disc 2 (sides 3 and 4) shall be on black vinyl.

    The discs shall come in plain white card sleeves, rubber stamped and numbered by Jan.
    A A4 card insert shall be included featuring the album credits.

    The sleeves and discs shall be presented in a gatefold PVC cover.
    As this exclusive lathe cut is more expensive, the pre order shall be open until mid June to allow anyone who may want it to budget for it.

    An limited edition of 15.

    These will be heavy, and postage rates reflect this. Due to the value they shall also be sent as to be 'signed for'.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Animals And Me via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
