MRG203 | Release Date 2002

A compelling reissue of F.M. Cornog's debut full length release; compiling a series of 7' singles', EPs, cassette-only releases, and new material, the album was originally released Ajax Records in the U.S. in 1994. Cornog wrote, performed and recorded all of the material on Shining Hours In A Can directly to a Tascam mini-388 studio which he set up in a corner of his apartment in Astoria, NY. His gift for melody and emotional lyricisim are readily apparent from the get-go; and these pop-gems quickly established him as the crown-prince of lo-fi home-recorded indie-pop. As an extra special bonus, we have included 3 tracks on this reissue - Woody's Car, Hide My Life Away From You, and Miracleland - that were not available on the original album.

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.
