LCD Soundsystem’s ‘The Long Goodbye’ Receives Tenth Anniversary Repress
The tenth anniversary of a milestone in the history of LCD Soundsystem will arrive on 6 August when DFA Records partners with Parlophone / Warner Music to repress the long out-of-print The Long Goodbye: LCD Soundsystem Live At Madison Square Garden, a 5-LP vinyl unabridged recording of LCD Soundsystem’s near four-hour 2 April 2011 show at New York’s Madison Square Garden. The colossal show is also celebrated on 3CD for the very first time.
Produced and mixed by LCD founder and frontman James Murphy, The Long Goodbye is the ultimate audio document of LCD Soundsystem’s legendary — if not quite final — sold-out Madison Square Garden performance.
Hailed by New York magazine as “a marvel of pure craft” and Rolling Stone as a “staggeringly great night,” The Long Goodbye show was the lengthiest, most career-spanning LCD Soundsystem has played to date. The album finds the LCD core live band of Murphy, Pat Mahoney, Nancy Whang, Al Doyle, Gavilán Rayna Russom and Tyler Pope joined by a choir, string and horn sections — plus special guest performances including Win Butler and Regine Chassagne of Arcade Fire, Reggie Watts, the Juan MacLean, Shit Robot, Planningtorock, and Shannon Funchess of Light Asylum.
The Long Goodbye: LCD Soundsystem Live At Madison Square Garden is an essential document of a singular moment in the history of LCD Soundsystem and New York City’s musical life.
The Long Goodbye can be pre-ordered here.
