Daniel Johnston Fun Limited Edition Vinyl LP

Remastered for the First Time Since the Album’s 1994 Release

Daniel Johnston has spent the last 30 or so years exposing his heartrending tales of unrequited love, cosmic mishaps, and existential torment to an ever-growing international cult audience. Initiates, including a healthy number of discerning musicians and critics, have hailed him as an American original in the style of bluesman Robert Johnson and country legend Hank Williams.

A number of artists like M. Ward, Beach House, The Flaming Lips, Wilco, Death Cab For Cutie, Yo La Tengo and Bright Eyes have covered his songs and he has collaborated with the likes of Jad Fair (Half Japanese), the Butthole Surfers and members of Sonic Youth among others. Daniel gained his widest public exposure to date when, at the 1992 MTV Music Awards, Nirvana's Kurt Cobain (who constantly touted Daniel in interviews) wore a Daniel Johnston T-shirt.

Daniel Johnston's major label debut Fun was originally released in 1994 on Atlantic Records while he was housed in a mental institution. Featuring some of Daniel's finest songwriting and boasting the most "accessible" sound of his eccentric and deep catalog, producer Paul Leary (Butthole Surfers) eloquently preserves the singer/songwriter's earnest appeal and wraps it in sympathetic musical support. The aspiring cartoonist's playful, symbol-heavy sketches have graced many of his album covers including Fun.
