Collectable 2002 EP Back in Print for First Time in Years!
Mastered from the Original Master Tapes: Feel the Loose Onstage Presence of
Rivers Cuomo and Co.
Released exactly six years after the band’s Pinkerton album, The Lion and the
Witch was designed as a collector’s item. Limited to 25,000 copies on CD, the EP
captured Weezer performances from Japan in Spring 2002. In addition to spirited
takes of six favorite tunes, the mini-album contains a number of unique
characteristics long-prized by fans. And it’s never been on LP. Until now!
Mastered from the original master tapes and pressed at RTI, Mobile Fidelity’s
180g LP presents the music in the best fidelity it’s ever enjoyed and puts music
lovers feet away from Weezer’s onstage position. Moreover, the celebrated
artwork—designed by Los Angeles-based duo kozyndan—can finally be appreciated in
large-scale format. In every way, this reissue brings to fans everywhere the
EP’s myriad simple pleasures for the very first time. It’s an ideal and integral
part of the ongoing mainstream vinyl resurrection.
Originally expressly intended for indie record stores, The Lion and the Witch
lasts just over 25 minutes yet makes up for brevity in terms of fun, looseness,
and uniqueness. The band plays the rare instrumental “Polynesia” before lighting
into “Dope Nose” and commits a few lovable gaffes throughout.
Specifically, leader Rivers Cuomo begins the third verse of “El Scorcho” too
soon and bassist Scott Shriner forgets the words to “Holiday,” causing his
fellow band members to break out in laughter. Warts and all, this hook-ridden
affair is a souvenir-worthy snapshot of an excellent pop-rock band relishing in
its identity as geeks and goofballs.
Don’t pass up the chance to grab this piece of memorabilia. Whether you own this
on CD or were never fortunate enough to snag a copy, it’s never sounded better.
