Junta to Be Released on Vinyl for Record Store Day

For this year’s Record Store Day, Phish has announced that their debut album, Junta, will finally make it to vinyl format for the first time. Originally released by the band on cassette in 1989, the album will now become available as a Limited Edition 180 gram Deluxe 3-LP vinyl set, available exclusively at independently owned record stores participating in Record Store Day. The release will be limited to 5,000 individually numbered copies and will only be available on April 21 for Record Store day. Check out the full tracklisting below.

Junta was recorded at Euphoria Sound Studios in Revere, Massachusetts in 1987 and 1988 on 16-track 2” tape and was mixed to 1/4” stereo reels. All production duties on the album are the work of the band members themselves. The vinyl release is culled from the original stereo master reels with lacquers cut by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering. Each LP is pressed onto 180g audiophile grade vinyl and includes a free MP3 download of the entire album (transferred from the new vinyl master).

The LE Deluxe vinyl copy will also feature the original packaging created by the band for the 1989 cassette release. In addition, 2,500 of the Junta Deluxe 3-LP sets will also include brand new exclusive Limited Edition hand-carved, hand-printed linolium block posters by Jim Pollock. Those editions will be distributed randomly at participating independently owned record stores across the country, but will be clearly marked.
