Mastered by Doug Sax and pressed at Quality Record Pressings!

The first three sides of this double LP are cut at 33 1/3. As a comparison bonus, the fourth side is a 45-RPM cut of two of the songs from the album, "The Girl With The Holiday Smile" and "Night's Lullaby", both written by Lyle Lovett.

Deluxe gatefold packaging.

Co-produced with Nathaniel Kunkel, Release Me marks the end of an era as it's Lyle Lovett's last record for Curb/Universal Music Group after being on the label for his entire career. Release Me is quintessential Lyle, mixing a smart collection of originals and covers that show not only the breadth of this Texas legend's deep talents, but also the diversity of his influences. The 14-song set includes guest appearances from K.D. Lang, Kat Edmonson and Sara & Sean Watkins. Covers include Lyle's take on classic songs like "Release Me," "White Freightliner Blues," "Brown Eyed Handsome Man" and "Isn't That So".

Excellent Pressing & Great Music

One of Lyles best musical efforts. 5 Stars for music content. The pressing was flat & quiet. Can't quite go 5 stars on sonics but an easy 4 stars. Recommended.


A new standard

Wow, was I blown away with this record. Yes, I love Lovett's music, but the pressing and sound quality of this record are simply amazing. Other artists please take note! 30$ for a 2 LP pressing done by QRP that sounds simply amazing. I might have to purchase another just in case... Thanks to all involved with this project. Now can someone please convince Lyle to have Joshua Judges Ruth done up in a similar fashion?

I thought this was simply an excellent pressing of a great record - then I played side 4 - wow, now I think this is an incredible pressing of a terrific album!


This is so real

I read a few 3 star reviews of the CD, but the LP is definitely 5 stars.The production is awesome. The band could be playing in your listening room. The real highlight is side 4 done at 45rpm. The fiddle playing on "night's lullaby" is simply sublime


Amazing!!!

I co-produced and mixed this record and I could not be more blown away with this Vinyl pressing. This record, when I play it at home, is closer to what I heard in the studio that any other medium I can transport. It is dead quiet, punchy, totally musical and staggeringly accurate. How do they do that?

QRP has fundamentally changed what I expect to hear from a major release medium.
