Codeine - When I See The Sun

From Numero Group's press release:

From 1990-1994, New York City's Codeine were making somnambulant waves on a musical landscape reeling from Sub Pop's better known exports. 1991's Frigid Stars LP, 1992's Barely Real, and 1994's The White Birch received much critical praise upon release, but Codeine dissolved before any of that hype would carry Low, Bedhead, and the Red House Painters to international acclaim.

All three albums will have subjected to Numero's notoriously elaborate packaging and detailed liner notes, including essays by Sub Pop's Jonathan Poneman, Love Child's Alan Licht, and the Flaming Lips' Wayne Coyne and Steven Drozd. The albums have been faithfully restored from the original masters, and and are accompanied by a plethora of singles, demos, live recordings, and Peel sessions. Each album will be packaged as a double album with a CD of the same material. Additionally, an ultra deluxe box set of all three albums is available in a limited edition of 1000 copies. The box set features no additional tracks, but does come with a 5' x 1' fold out poster of the band's complete discography and a tidy box that holds all three albums National Geographic-style.

The first 500 copies pre-ordered of When I See The Sun will also receive a bonus 7", featuring two songs recorded live at TT the Bear's Place in Boston by Bob Weston. We've also made an ultra deluxe edition, limited to 100 copies, that comes with a limited Numero "Winner" t-shirt.

When I See The Sun is $80 (or $100 with a T-shirt). Preorders and samples are available at Numero Group's webstore.
