When it comes to represses of Minus the Bear, I look nowhere else but to the guys at Suicide Squeeze. Minus the Bear’s, Highly Refined Pirates, on its fourth pressing since 2002 will be on white vinyl. This album is a must for any new or old fan of Minus the Bear. A true sense of feeling comes from the sounds produced on this album, which gave Minus the Bear the tone that we all know and love.

Whether it be cheering some beers with friends or just letting the body unwind and dancing to the distinct groove that Minus the Bear has developed over the years, this album is where it all began. So enjoy the groove and ride that wave of sound my friends.

The Details

Suicide Squeeze will issue the band's earliest recordings on vinyl. "Highly Refined Pirates," is Minus the Bear's first proper album. Originally released in 2002, this edition is being remastered from the original tapes, for vinyl, by the legendary Bernie Grundman, the Hollywood-based legend behind many of the industry's landmark recordings, such as Michael Jackson's, "Thriller," and Steely Dan's, "Aja." The fourth pressing will be limited to 1,000 copies: on white vinyl; each copy comes with a download coupon. A real chance to hear where this sound started...
