The Mountain Goats: All Hail West Texas 12"

Merge Records


The last of the "all-home-recordings albums" byí_the Mountain Goatsí_and the only one about which that claim is true,í_All Hail West Texasí_was originally released as a free-standing compact disc on the late, lamented Emperor Jones. That was about a decade ago. The songs were originally transferred from the cassettes onto which they were recorded to 1/4" reels at Tiny Telephone by Alex Newport, who also played in Fudge Tunnel. John got really excited when he realized his tapes were being EQ'd by the guy from Fudge Tunnel.í_
