Vinyl LPs are expensive and take a long time to turn around, thanks to the vinyl “boom” – 180 gram reissues of records you can find at your local Salvation Army tie up all the machines. That said, I wanted to be sure there was demand for Fish-n-Grits on vinyl and enough of you inquired about it. So, I’m proud to announce I’ve paired up with the good folks at ReDefinition Records (who I partnered with for my Lunch Breaks LP in 2014) to give Fish-n-Grits life on wax.
The original artwork (which features a four year old me entranced by my late, great uncle Fred doing stand up at one of our family BBQs) was given a CTI-esque remix and there will also be a small run of commercial test presses before the real thing drops. Tests should be available by July, commercial LP by Labor Day (vinyl street dates are as far from exact science as one can travel). Stay tuned!
