Elvis Costello on Momofuku:
"...the real version is pressed on two pieces of black plastic with a hole in the middle. You may prefer other, more portable, less scratchable, editions that will soon become available for your convenience but this is how it sounds the best: with a needle in a groove, the way the Supreme Being intended it to be... "
"...we recorded exclusively to tape, completing and mixing each song before moving on to the next. The entire record took a week to record and mix. The music has been pressed on four sides of vinyl for volume and clarity although the album was originally sequenced with six tracks a-side. Every record has its own method. This was the one for these songs."
