We’re pleased as punch to finally release the new, expanded Hitchhike to Rhome today!

Courtesy of Omnivore Recordings, the 2-CD version of Hitchhike To Rhome contains the original album, coupled with a second disc of those 12 rare and unreleased tracks, many mixed from the original multi-tracks for the first time by longtime Old 97’s engineer Rip Rowan. The double LP (limited edition first pressing on translucent orange vinyl) features the LP on three sides with six of the recently unearthed tracks on Side 4. The download card included gives the buyer the complete 2-CD program. Both formats include rare photos, memorabilia and notes from Ken Bethea.

The entire album has been remixed from original session tapes by Rip Rowan. Check out his blog post about the experience.
