Product Notes

In the X Vinyl Bundle you get the first four albums on vinyl by the Los Angeles Punk band, X. You get Los Angeles, Wild Gift, Under the Big Black Sun, and More Fun In The New World by X, ON Vinyl.

LOS ANGELES

Vinyl LP pressing. Four decades after their inception, one thing is clear: X was not only one of the most influential bands to crash out of the punk movement of the late '70s, but the group's music continues to be sonically groundbreaking today. Songs written during the group's inception are as relevant and inventive today as they were in 1977. The band's early albums, Los Angeles, produced by Ray Manzarek of the Doors, Wild Gift, and Under the Big Black Sun explored dark love and an even darker L.A. with the unflinching eye of a Raymond Chandler novel. Subsequent efforts like More Fun in the New World found the band continuing to grow musically and politically, fearlessly mixing genres without ever losing it's center. "The quintessential L.A. punk band made the first great West Coast punk album with it's debut. Los Angeles is best known for it's city-defining anthem and the torrid "Johnny Hit and Run Paulene"; produced by Ray Manzarek of the Doors, it also shows that punk and classic rock can be friends" - No. 287 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

WILD GIFT

Wild Gift by X Vinyl LP pressing. Fat Possum Records and punk icons X team up to reissue newly remastered versions - courtesy of Jason Ward and Chicago Mastering - of four of the band's classic albums including Los Angeles (1980), Wild Gift (1981), Under The Big Black Sun (1982), and More Fun In The New World (1983).

UNDER THE BIG BLACK SUN

Under the Big Black Sun is the third studio album by American rock band X, and their major-label debut. It was released on Elektra Records in July 1982. The cover art illustration was drawn by Alfred Harris. Lyrically, the band broadened their perspective. No longer the punk scene’s Raymond Chandler, writing of the squalor and chaos of Los Angeles, where their house was often a center of activity, the band instead looked inward. The lyrics focus on break-ups, death, and the nagging truth that all of the critical fawning had yet to add up to more tangible success (the wry “The Have Nots,” which incorporates a slew of bars and one night stands the band had noted on their endless criss-crossing tours of the states).

MORE FUN IN THE NEW WORLD

More Fun In The New World by X - More Fun in the New World is the fourth studio album by American rock band X, released in September 1983 by Elektra Records. It was reissued with four bonus tracks by Rhino Records in 2002. It was the last X album produced by Ray Manzarek. VINYL LP - FAT POSSUM Records.
