In these times of experimentation in the digital realm, the Viennese platform Editions Mego seems to have found a new niche in the reissuing of vinyl albums. In a very near future, two emblematic albums by Christian Fennesz and Emeralds( “Endless Summer” and “What Happened”) will be released in a 2 LP format of high g/m2. The vinyl of “Endless Summer” (Mego, 2001), among Fennesz’s most significant and influential albums, has been out of print for a decade. The new reissue by Editions Mego will add to the album’s official tracklist the extended version of “Happy Audio” plus two additional tracks, “Ohne Sonne” and “47 Blues”. Until now these have only been available as a bonus with the Japanese version of the album. In the case of Emeralds, this is the first time their album “What Happened” (No Fun, 2009) will be released on vinyl. The official released date for both albums is 5th November. Pre-order a copy on Editions Mego’s online store.
