MRG256 | Release Date 2004

Originally released in the UK in November 2001, Biggest Bluest Hi-Fi is the debut record from these Scottish dream pop wunderkinds. Peppered with sensitive, acoustic pop and perfect tunes like 'Eighties Fan' (produced by Stuart Murdoch of Belle & Sebastian), BBHF is now available for the first time in the US. The Merge version of this record includes two bonus tracks from Camera Obscura's "Eighties Fan" CD-single, as well as a video of that song.

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.
