Last year, Conor Oberst proved to fans worldwide that Bright Eyes, indeed, has returned. In light of this, Saddle Creek will ressue six of the project’s earlier albums on vinyl, starting on March 6th with 1998’s A Collection of Songs Written and Recorded 1995-1997 and 2001’s Oh Holy Fools: The Music of Son, Ambulance & Bright Eyes, as Exclaim points out. Then on April 3rd, the label reissue 1998’s Letting Off the Happiness and 1999’s Every Day and Every Night EP, and on May 1st, they’ll finish with 2000’s Fevers and Mirrors and 2002’s There Is No Beginning to the Story. By summer you can start smiling again.
Each record is accompanied with a CD of the album, though don’t expect new material. Having said that, if you’ve been aching to hear “Sunrise, Sunset” on your player, pick up your copy over at Saddle Creek. They even have bundle packages available.
In the meantime…
