30th anniversary reissue of Game Theory’s classic second full-length!
Omnivore Recordings’ re-introduction of the Game Theory catalog continues with the 30th Anniversary reissue of Real Nighttime.
Their first in a long line of albums produced by Mitch Easter (R.E.M., Let’s Active), this version adds an astonishing 13 bonus tracks (10 previously unissued) to the original album’s lauded twelve. From hard-to-find compilation tracks to live and unheard material (including covers of songs by Gerry Rafferty and Queen), Real Nighttime now not only stands as the band’s breakthrough, but as a true document of their emergence into the annals of music history.
Available on CD and Digital, as well as a translucent red LP (with download card for entire CD program), Real Nighttime stands as a fan favorite, and as a truly classic release. Packaging includes rare photos and an interview with Mitch Easter and series co-producer Pat Thomas, as well as notes from Byron Coley (Spin, Forced Exposure) and a remembrance from Carl Newman of The New Pornographers.
The sun has risen once again on the Game Theory catalog. Now it’s time to prepare for the Real Nighttime.
The initial 300 orders for the LP purchased from the link above come with a 1983 never-issued flexi of “Dead Center” first-come, first-served.
