Sleep - Dopesmoker reissue

Quote:
Southern Lord has announced a deluxe reissue of one of the towering achievements in metal history, "Dopesmoker" by SLEEP.

For the 2012 reissue, there are some very notable changes. The original studio tapes have been remastered, presenting the album as the band had originally intended. The audio is clearer, louder, and at last brings a true representation of SLEEP's hour-plus Weedian chronicle. Exclusive to this Southern Lord edition is brand new artwork by longtime SLEEP artist Arik Roper, to be unveiled in the coming weeks. Additionally, this reborn version of "Dopesmoker" boasts an unreleased live recording of one of the band's best all-time performances: "Holy Mountain" from San Francisco's I-Beam in 1994.

This edition ensures that this mesmerizing, incredibly complex document remains unrivaled in the annals of stoner metal.

"Dopesmoker" track listing:

01. Dopesmoker (1:03:31)
02. Holy Mountain (Live @ the I-Beam SF, CA. 1994) (11:54)
From Blabbermouth

Does that mean I have an original press then?

If so, swag.

CD or vinyl? The "original press" is technically Jerusalem, I guess.

Well I guess the 2003 release of Dopesmoker was a decent mix, I'd rather hear a remaster of Holy Mountain. And some new studio versions of the songs they never recorded.

Agreed, I really don't see much of a point in this reissue other than to bring the album back in print. And no Sonic Titan on this reissue means that the 2003 version is still valuable.

I actually had no idea that Dopesmoker was released on CD. I got my copy on vinyl
