1500 pressed on Creamy White vinyl & DL card.

First time on vinyl since 1998 for this magnificent patchwork collage of the Giant Sand main man’s eclectic muses; a cut and paste gem, meandering, melancholy and beautiful. Classic solo album from Giant Sand’s main man Howe Gelb circa 1998, re-issued with new liner notes and remastered on cream vinyl. A catch-all collection from the much-travelled troubadour that brings together a wealth of personal recordings edited into an intriguing ponder wander through the man’s thinking. A truly intoxicating set of songs buoyed by Howe Gelb’s prosaic prose and effortless use of the mind-bending one-liner. “’Hisser’ is the vision of a truly unique and engaging talent, and in its pure heart and soul lies a masterpiece.” College Music Journal // “Pure genius and usually chaotic, Howe Gelb is a cottage industry… often labelled the Godfather of alternative country.” BOMB magazine // “There are wonderful glimpses of what Gelb is capable of when he’s not rushing off to dabble with the next nugget in a seemingly inexhaustible flow of ideas.” The Line Of Best Fit // “One of those albums that could have a semi-permanent spot next to the hi-fi for late-night playing.”
