MRG173 | Release Date February 8, 2000

A-side from the title track (taken from "Come Pick Me Up"), there are three bonus tracks: "White Noise," recorded with the album and produced by the lovely and talented Jim O'Rourke, "Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps)" - yes, a cover of the atonally rocking David Bowie tune from his great 1980 album of the same name, and a pretty, acoustic "1,000 Pounds" that's way different from the album version and features vibes and some appealingly amateurish banjo picking. These last two songs were recorded at the famed Duck-Kee Studios of Mebane, NC.

What is the difference between MP3 and FLAC files?

Merge offers the highest quality MP3s possible. They are encoded without DRM using the LAME version 3.97 encoder at non-variable rate of 320 kbps. At this quality level, the sound is essentially indistinguishable from a CD.

We also offer FLAC digital music files. FLAC stands for Free Lossless Audio Codec, an uncompressed audio format. As such, FLAC files provide a perfect digital copy of a given piece of music.

MP3s eliminate audio data in order to reduce file size. FLAC files are by definition 'lossless' and are a perfect digital copy of the original source material. Because of this, a FLAC audio file is much larger in size than an MP3 file. While FLAC audio is ideal if you listen to your music on a higher-end home stereo, or enjoy close-listening on headphones, it does not have as widespread playback support as the MP3 format.

*Note: FLAC files do not work in iTunes.
