This version features new 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.lel (EMEGO 016CD) 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 become a classic of its time, topping many end-of-year polls. This CD has the same audio content as EMEGO 035CD -- it is the 2007 released newly-mixed version by Fennesz, which resulted in a more open-sounding version of the tracks, especially the marimba-driven "Caecilia," the hypnotic "Before I Leave," and the towering "Happy Audio." It also contains the 2 extra titles from the updated 2007 version: "Badminton Girl," originally released in 2001 as part of the Split Series #15 12" with Main on Fat Cat Records, now out-of-print, and "Endless," which had been previously-unreleased.
