    20th anniversary reissue of M. Ward's second album "End of Amnesia"  Remastered from the original mixes especially for vinyl 

    1st artist approved vinyl pressing ï Double LP gatefold jacket with expanded artwork from the original cover artist

    Limited to 2000 copies world wide pressed on clear vinyl M.Ward's second solo enterprise verifies the artist as one of those few songwriters who stand between the cracks of time, where he spins a hallucinatory, new universe out of old-world roots. Indeed, there's a real down-home, unpolished luster to End of Amnesia, both in execution and in songwriting, that gives it a timeless, old-fashioned pallor. And yet there's also something just slightly off in the songs, a strange, disembodied quality that seems to come at least partly from an ulterior place, be it real or imagined. 

    M. Ward

    Duet For Guitars

      Originally released on CD in 1999, M. Ward’s debut is a sparse, mostly live affair recorded with pal and engineer Adam Selzer of Norfolk & Western at Type Foundry Studio in Portland, OR.

      Listeners who are already accustomed to Ward’s breathy, conversational vocal delivery and soft-picked, West Coast Americana melodies will find much to love here. Duet for Guitars #2 is peppered with instrumentals in the John Fahey and Bad Timing-era Jim O’Rourke vein, and Ward’s lackadaisical picking sounds just as lazily precise here as it does on future recordings.

      There’s a real warmth to the sessions that transcends the often bare-bones production. For the most part, it sound like most takes were done live with two microphones, with the occasional overdub, and that style suits Ward’s dreamy tales of molasses-slow teenage summers (\Beautiful Car\”) and oddball parables like “”Fishing Boat Song.”” It’s also interesting to hear him shedding the inflections of some of his more obvious heroes like Neil Young (“”Who May Be Lazy””) and Bob Dylan (“”It Won’t Happen Twice””). This limited edition is an indie record store exclusive and pressed on clear vinyl!”
