Intervention Records and Matthew Sweet are proud to introduce an amazing
Artist-Approved reissue series, Matthew Sweet 1991-1995!
In 2018 Intervention releases Double-LP Artist-Approved Expanded Editions of
Sweet’s Trilogy of 90's Power-Pop classics, Girlfriend, Altered Beast and 100%
Fun, plus the Son of Altered Beast 7-song EP, which appears on vinyl for the
very first time!
Each Expanded Edition Double-LP set of the three classic studio albums is loaded
with extra tracks not included on the original LPs- 3 extra tracks on Girlfriend, 6 on Altered Beast, and 7 on 100% Fun. So many of these songs are
either appearing on vinyl for the very first time or seeing official release for
the very first time. And for Sweet completists, these LPs are the most extensive
collection of extra tracks compiled and packaged with the studio albums the
songs were recorded for!
All four LPs are 100% analog mastered from the ORIGINAL ANALOG MASTER TAPES by
Ryan K. Smith at Sterling Sound. The original 15-song repertoires for Girlfriend
and Altered Beast are for the first time spread across three LPs sides for
maximum sound quality and the ability to PLAY LOUD!
The ultra-quiet 180-gram LPs are pressed at boutique press, RTI in Camarillo,
The jacket art for Matthew Sweet 1991-1995 has been faithfully restored by IR’s
art director Tom Vadakan. The three Expanded Editions feature beautiful "Old
Style" gatefolds printed onto heavy blanks and film laminated by the wizards at
Stoughton Printing. Son of Altered Beast features a single-pocket "Old Style"
gatefold by Stoughton as well.
1995's 100% Fun is the third leg of Matthew Sweet's Holy Trinity of Power Pop!
Produced by Brendan O'Brien, it's a densely-layered production full of grinding
guitars, heavy bass lines and BIG drum sounds.
Intervention's 19-track Expanded Edition 2x LP set is the defining presentation
of this great album! While the original repertoire's 12 tracks are bigger and
better than ever, the 7 Bonus Tracks are on their own 12" 45 RPM 180-gram LP!
Intervention's cut is big, punchy and dynamic with plenty of producer Brendan
O'Brien signature crunch completely intact. Matthew's amazing vocals really
shine here amid the layered densities of O'Brien's mix. A big, bold improvement
over the 1990s original LP, and so much better than the CD as to make that
comparison a total farce.
100% Fun's album art was lovingly restored by Intervention's Art Director Tom
Vadakan, and printed as a gorgeous "Old Style" gatefold by Stoughton printing in
LA. It's printed on heavy stock and film-laminated for superior color depth,
beauty and durability. The center labels are printed by Dorado.
"... an album that rocks its worries away without ever getting rid of them."
-Stephen Thomas Erlewine, All Music
"...a classic power-pop record full of chiming guitar, powerful hooks and
sing-a-long choruses ... a record I keep coming back to year after year ..." -DS
