MRG236 | Release Date October 7, 2003

Autumn Was A Lark emerged from some post-tour recording sessions in the spring of 2003 at Pox Studios in Durham, NC, and what was initially meant to be an EP quickly morphed into a full-length. Things kick off with a brand new song, "Autumn Got Dark," perhaps one of the most rocking Portastatic tracks ever recorded. Three covers that were featured prominently in the live show this past spring follow: Badfinger's "Baby Blue"; Bruce Springsteen's "Growin' Up" and Ronnie Lane's "One For The Road." Up next is a full band version of "In The Lines," which appeared in acoustic form on The Summer Of The Shark. The release is rounded out by a slew of Portastatic material, old and new, that was recorded at various live, on-air radio sessions during the spring tour. These feature Mac McCaughan solo on guitar and piano.

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.
