Our friends at Dischord Direct have prevailed upon us to remaster Jawbox's 1994 classic (ahem) For Your Own Special Sweetheart. Seems like it was high time to add some low end, and none other than Mr. Bob Weston at Chicago Mastering Service was enlisted for the challenge.
The result is a pretty meaty version of the record, with Zach's drums and Kim's bass getting a thorough re-write (sonically speaking), while the guitars enjoy a sprinkling of what ended up being somewhat shallow mid-range in the original. We've spiced up the re-release with the addition of 3 tracks formerly only available on the Savory+3 EP: "68," "L'il Shaver," and a cover of the Big Boys' classic, "Sound on Sound." I believe that barring any random pirated versions available online, this will be the only place you can get the original recordings of these tracks.
Both CD and vinyl are available as of November 23, 2009. The LP will include a coupon for a free digital download of the entire record plus bonus tracks.
