To say I’m excited about Matador Record’s Ace of Hearts era Mission of Burma reissues, The Definitive Editions I, II, and III, would be ignoring words like stoked and adverbs like incredibly. Signals Calls and Marchers, Vs, and The Horrible Truth About Burma have all been expanded, repackaged, and remastered with bonus cuts and live DVDs. Hell, I’m not even sure incredibly stoked is an accurate enough description. Maybe I could add a couple F bombs in there for more emphasis. Or, better yet, why don’t I just let the stereo do the talking.
The Definitive Mission of Burma reissues will all be available March 18th, and if you’re like me and you plan on picking up all three, Matador’s website is promising a sweet preorder deal.
Note: Both of the tracks featured here are also available as uncompressed WAV files via Matador.
