With both Frank Black and Teenager of the Year having been out of print on vinyl since their release in the early-90s, it's with great excitement that 4AD puts them both back in the racks in 2019. Both reissues are faithful represses of the original releases. Issued in 1994, Frank Black was in rich songwriting vein when making Teenager of the Year, releasing it one year after his self-titled debut solo album. A double album of 22 songs in just over hours, and again co-produced with Eric Drew Feldman (Captain Beefheart / Pere Ubu), Teenager of the Year is widely regarded as a high point of his solo career. Among the plaudits thrown its way was Pitchfork ranking it in their Top 100 Albums of the 90s, saying "beneath its veneer lie moments brilliant enough to rival any of the Pixies' 1990s work, and Black's greatest lyrical achievements."
