Yep, Alligator Records is jumping into the vinyl fray. And they've included us as amongst the first to know! They've been working on it for a while, but they're planning on starting with a VINYL ONLY release for JJ Grey & Mofro.

This release called "The Choice Cuts" will hit the streets on November 3rd. (Yep, sorry you gotta wait that long!)

It’ll be 180g vinyl and feature 2 tracks from each of their four previous releases PLUS a solo, previously unavailable version* of Tupelo Honey "that’s absolutely brilliant" and carry a $19.98 list.

Side 1
Country Ghetto
Lochloosa
The Wrong Side
The Sun Is Shining Down

Side 2
Orange Blossoms
Jookhouse
Brighter Days
On Fire
Tupelo Honey *



Stay tuned for more. And thank Alligator for treating us so kindly by giving us the advanced heads up.

Wow, you 2 are FAST! Yes Sunny, 180g vinyl is indeed the old fashioned record. It's a bit thicker. Here's some info on another forum about 180g vinyl. Here's another explanation that's a little shorter. I'm sure we have some audiophiles (which I am not) on here that can give us more.

can they be played on old players? I thinks Gregg may still have one......

I love the artwork!

now are these songs recently recorded just for this project?

I wonder how he decided on the songs to play...

I'll assume that aside from the first question that the others are rhetorical. If not then keep asking questions and I'll keep answering with:

I don't know.

They are legit questions though!

the "Tupelo Honey" isn't from the original recordings, but knowing what we M Effers (Mofro Fanatics for the newer folk) know about when and why & he sings that song will just make it that much more special!

Now I have an excuse to replace the stylus on my turntable, there's just something rustic & raw about vinyl. I can not to get my hands on this album!!

FireFly you're showing that you haven't been on the planet for too many years. The 80s? THE 80s?? Uhhhh, we were listening to vinyl in the 60s and 70s because that was the only choice we had!!

Let's just hope nobody gets the brilliant idea to bring back 8-track tapes.

The thing I miss most about vinyl albums is the cover artwork and liner notes. I can remember being a wee lassie and rifling through my mom's collection and reverently inspecting the artwork; Sticky Fingers, Boston, Cheap Thrills, The Wall, Dark Side of the Moon, Breakfast in America, Peter Gabriel 3, Aoxomoxoa, Houses of the Holy, London Calling, Who's Next, Aladdin Sane, Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.....the list goes on and on. My mom would often find me asleep admist piles of discarded albums.

If you managed to get down this far in this thread then you've survived Sunshine's adrenaline attack and Giggles' walk down mammary lane above, and found your way to an update!

The vinyl record will become avail for sale starting with the show at the Fillmore in NYC on 10/22.

For those who may not have all the updated info on this, 8 of the songs are previously recorded--2 from each of their 4 CDs, plus Tupelo Honey. The Mofro newsletter describes it as "a solo, previously unavailable version of Tupelo Honey that's absolutely brilliant!"

I'm not sure what solo means. I read somewhere that JJ plays drums, guitar, bass, and I think keyboards on this Tupelo Honey. That would be awesome if it's the case. Unless I can remember where I saw that or any of y'all have seen more about it, I guess we'll have to wait a couple more weeks to find out!

I found where I read about JJ playing all the instruments on Tupelo Honey. Delerious Tyme had scoped out an article with the info in it. Here it is

Giggles, no worries. I'll wait.

Sunny, deep breaths. In through your nose, out through your mouth. Cleansing breaths. Ahhhhh...better, right? No worries hun, they ain't gonna run out that fast. I don't think Adam can take mail orders or hold merch or anything. It'd be pretty tough for him to do that.

Best bet would be to go to Alligator and pre-order it. Then you'll get one for sure, delivered right to your door with free shipping. OR wait until they come to the Peel. I really don't think he'll run out by then. But ask him this wknd at Greenville. Considering the quantity they're doing though, they should have enuf to last for people to get for Xmas presents.

Here's a link straight to the Alligator shopping cart for "Choice Cuts"

I got an email from JJ today regarding the discussion on "Choice Cuts" as the name for the record. He knows that's a title that's been used by many bands over the years, just like "best of" and "greatest hits." He said he doesn't research or worry about what others are doing. He came up with the title "The Choice Cuts" for a "best of" vinyl years ago.

And a farplace to go wif it. (Where'd you growed up? It's: 'chimley'). Shit, a large number of homes built here after 1980 have farplaces. We know people that use 'em a total of maybe 30 to 45 days over a 3-4 month period. We use ours a total of 0 times a year.

It's the carpetbaggers and yankees fault. Come invading down here and wanting shit in there houses like they had back home. Lucky we ain't got outdoor plumbing and a snow shovel in every garage.

You growed up in the frozen tundra and ain't never heard 'chimley'? That's how my ex-father in law used to say it and he was from Ohio.

Hmmmmm...quick poll: who grew up somewhere where it was pronounced chimley? Or for that matter, who pronounces it chimley now? We'll get down to the origin of this pronunciation if it kills me. (And at my age, it might.)
