Run Out Groove Vinyl has announced that their deluxe reissue of Gary Louris’ solo album Vagabonds will be shipping for a September 21, 2018 street date. Originally released in 2008, this reissue of Louris’ only solo album will be a limited, numbered, 180g 2LP edition expanded to include a bonus disc with the entire Luftpolster Ballerina Avena Beige 4 Damen Samtweich Gr 5 Acoustic Vagabonds EP, demos (including a previously unreleased song) and outtakes, many making their first appearance in a physical format. The vinyl pressing and packaging are of the highest quality.
If you missed the pre-order, there is still an opportunity to obtain a copy. Use this store locator feature to find independent record stores in your area that might be carrying it on 9/21:
Note: this was a one time pressing and the supply of unsold copies is strictly limited to what various retailers have in stock. When they’re gone, they’re gone for good.
My vision for Vagabonds was to make my own mini-All Things Must Pass, one of my favorite albums of all time. I wanted to find that special place between pop, rock and traditional music. I’ve always loved music that exists in the seams, between genres. And there was a real synergy between everyone involved that made it a very happy record to make.
