The Decemberists — The Crane Wife (10th Anniversary Edition 5 LP + Blu-Ray)

Includes home demos, B-sides and concert Blu-ray

12" booklet includes essay by David Fricke and a forward written by "Hamilton" star Lin-Manuel Miranda

The Decemberists are reissuing their 2006 Capitol Records debut, The Crane Wife, in a deluxe, five-LP version housed in stylish packaging with home demos, B-sides and a bonus Blu-ray DVD of an NPR-aired concert. The latter Blu-ray is a complete live video performance at Washington, D.C.'s 9:30 Club from October 2006 on The Crane Wife tour. Housed in a lift-top box.

"It seemed fitting that this one should receive some sort of celebration. It was our first record for a major label, after all, and our first record working with Tucker Martine (alongside Chris Walla). It was our first record with a lineup that would remain constant for the next decade, and our first record to actually get a teensy bit of commercial airplay. We take what we can get.

"So, in honor of this auspicious occasion, we Decemberists, along with Capitol Records, are reissuing The Crane Wife on December 9th as a 5 LP + 1 Blu-ray Box Set. The original record has been remastered and neatly folded on to three sides of the first two LPs (why didn't we do that before?!), with the fourth side given over to b-sides and outtakes. A further LP of unreleased outtakes comprises the third disc, with the fourth and fifth LPs being all of the as-yet unreleased home demos for the record. A live show at D.C.'s storied 9:30 Club from October 2006 has been unearthed and remastered for the Blu-ray that is included with the set. A LP-size booklet has been lovingly constructed as well, including all the art and lyrics from the original CD booklet along with an essay from David Fricke. Lin-Manuel Miranda, he of "Hamilton fame," has been so generous as to provide a foreword for the book." — The Decemberists
