Vinyl LP pressing includes digital download with bonus content. Omnivore Recordings continues the re-examination and re-appreciation of Game Theory's stellar 1980s catalog with The Big Shot Chronicles. Passionate fans of the group all have a favorite GT album, and the band's drummer, Gil Ray, refers to The Big Shot Chronicles as his favorite in a revealing interview with set co-producer and Game Theory constant/confidant Dan Vallor in the new reissue's liner notes. Once again helmed by Mitch Easter (R.E.M., Let's Active), the 12-track album features an expansion of the band's sound, and contains the MTV 120 Minutes staple, "Erica's Word." For it's 30th anniversary, 13 tracks have been added-9 of which are previously unissued. From demos, outtakes, rough mixes, and live tracks, one can see the sonic trajectory the band was on-leading up to their arguable magnum opus, Lolita Nation. In addition to alternate versions of originals, this set includes a wealth of covers of songs by Todd Rundgren, Roxy Music, Big Star, The Velvet Underground, and more. Including some surprises.
