Guided By Voices Bee Thousand Limited Edition Vinyl LP + Download Card

20th Anniversary Reissue Newly Remastered by John Golden

Little introduction should be required here. Let it suffice to say that Guided By Voices' 1994 breakthrough Bee Thousand is arguably the best, or at least among the top GBV albums in a copious discography. Accordingly, the album has stacked up many accolades over the years from tastemakers far and wide.

This new LP pressing, the first since the late ’90s, honors the album’s 20th anniversary and features new (and definitely improved) mastering from John Golden. Issued on high-quality virgin vinyl courtesy of RTI, the reissue comes complete with a substantial gatefold jacket boasting a previously unpublished Robert Pollard collage and a free download card.

"Guided By Voices made many albums before Bee Thousand, and they would go on to make many, many more. They passed through several lineups and even took a crack at professional recording at one point, and eventually their prolific output became more overwhelming than anything else, much more than any casual fan could juggle. And although every GBV record contains a few absolute knockouts, they’ve rarely been so consistently awesome as they were on Bee Thousand.

"From the swaggering groove of “Hot Freaks” to the chiming pogo-pop of “Echos Myron” to the barren-hearted balladry of “Peep-Hole,” this album is a master class in glorious absurdity. Whether it’s your gateway into a new obsession or the only Guided By Voices record on your shelf, it deserves a place in your life." - Chris DeVille, Stereogum / Bee Thousand Turns 20
