Old Time Relijun

Songbook, Volume One, an early release by Arrington de Dionyso’s Old Time Relijun, has been long out of print. Too long, according to new label Northern-Spy, who are reissuing a mastered version of the album on November 16. The album was recorded before de Dionyso’s stint at K, which means it was before Calvin Johnson and co. re-recorded his parts and demanded he put choruses and three-part harmonies in every song.
