NEW VERSION WITH ARTWORK BY TINA FRANK BASED ON THE ORIGINAL 2001 MEGO RELEASE! Endless Summer, originally released in 2001 by Mego, was a breakthrough album for Christian Fennesz. The album which brought his name and music towards the first steps of mainstream recognition. Following on from the more experimental Hotel Paral.lell and the Beach Boys homaged Plays single, Endless Summer brought the guitars more to the front, the electronics shimmered more, and the melodies shined more brightly. It went on to be a classic of its time, topping many end of year polls. In 2006 a new featuring new artwork (the sunset cover) edition was released, newly mixed by Fennesz resulting in a more open sounding version of the tracks, especially the marimba driven Caecilia, the hypnotic Before I Leave, and the towering Happy Audio. In addition to the original 8 tracks, it contained 2 extra titles: Badminton Girl, originally released in 2001 as part of the Split #15 12 with Main on Fat Cat Records (12FAT045), now out of print and Endless, previously unreleased. This new edition in 2010 features the same audio as the 2006 album, but with the original artwork from 2001. It is released to celebrate the forthcoming 10th Anniversary double gatefold vinyl and poster edition, which will contain all the bonus tracks which appear on the Japanese CD version.
