MRG337 | Release Date January 27, 2009

Originally released in 1986, the Volcano Suns' sophomore effort, All-Night Lotus Party is noisier and more rambunctious than their debut The Bright Orange Years. Released here on CD for the first time, All-Night Lotus Party sees principal songwriter Peter Prescott (Mission of Burma) in a more collaborative effort with bandmates Jon Williams and Jeff Weigand. The trio meld "hardcore punk and heartland rock" (AMG) into a heavier, darker sound with more distortion on the guitars and more bass-heavy production. This reissue, crisply remastered by legendary engineer Bob Weston, features 11 bonus tracks (many unreleased previously).

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.
