Once upon a time, NEUTRAL MILK HOTEL’s massive LP-only box-set “THE COLLECTED WORKS OF NEUTRAL MILK HOTEL” was only available in the band’s online store. Now it’s right here at Horizon Records and it’s a treasure trove of material.
The Merge edition of The Collected Works of Neutral Milk Hotel includes their debut album On Avery Island expanded to a double LP, an exclusive 12-inch picture disc of Live at Jittery Joe’s, a previously unreleased live recording of “Little Birds” as the A-side of the 7-inch, and the “Holland, 1945” / “Engine” 7-inch on black vinyl with brand-new art.
All jackets are printed on enhanced cardboard stock for more vibrant, consistent color. In addition, the depth of the outer box has been increased to accommodate the extra contents and the interior fitments redesigned for added strength.
