Ben Blackwell Solo Album

Post by AJ123 » Sun Oct 21, 2012 4:25 am

Do any of you have Ben's solo album, I Remember When All This Was Trees, on vinyl? On some copies the title is handwritten by Blackwell himself and I was wondering if all copies were like that?

Is it in print forever or was it limited? I don't really follow Cass Records but want this as it is Ben Blackwell

I have a copy too, same handwritten title. I think Grim is correct as far as I can see.
I remember there originally being mention of 200 copies, only going by my memory though.

I like this album, it's not for everyone but it's the kind of stuff i like.

all this talk of trees... i think blackwell is the source of some fairly profound imagery when all is said and done ;)

I remembered to take mine along when they first came out. What would be funny is if all them he has signed said this...

Sure is.
