Bitchin Bajas - Rebajas 7 x CD box set (due to weight, this price for the USA only. Outside of the USA, the price will be adjusted as needed)

SKU 16-DC 718 CD
Chicago’s Bitchin Bajas have released a bunch of great, vinyl-only, cosmic, deep space, electronic / krautrock albums.
Think Cluster + Terry Riley + 1975-era T Dream sequences and you get the idea.
This totally wonderful set takes all of their USA vinyl-only releases for Drag City and reissues them on CD for the first time in a nice and very reasonably priced package; you want this! “It wasn’t so long ago....”

“The CD box set called Rebajas is a 7-disc, 6 hour and 42 minute second time around—for some of you, anyway—through the BITCHIN BAJAS catalog to date, including all 11 of their solo releases: eight albums and the Bajas sides of three split records! It’s a musical second time around—but on this format, it’s a first. None of these records have previously been released on CD. The music on the Rebajas box represents the dawn and early pleastoric period of Bitchin Bajas—all of it recorded during the years of the Obama administration, before the world came down with the bad kind of ill, the sad kind of sick, the fucked-up kind of fucked-up. Does anybody remember Eden? It wasn’t so long ago. . . listen!
In the time of their conception, none of these releases were issued on anything other than vinyl. Maybe a cassette too, for some of them. It made sense... analog synth music recorded on analog tape—why wander from the warmth of the original signal path? It sounded great. So why now? Well, there’s finally enough material to make a really DEEP listening experience, all put together! The limitless vast that Bitchin Bajas music implies even in its smallest sampling is well-served by a multi-disc set: put all of it in your CD changer and let it rotate endlessly! Go with the music, away from the world for an interminable amount of time. It will still be here when you get back—and your mind will be quieter when you return.
From the beginning, Bitchin Bajas have made music to enhance the moment they and you are sharing, and details above and beyond that have been relatively unimportant. In the time since then, they’ve gone from a one person band to a duo, then a trio. That information, plus the recording and original release details, the additional personnel and the original jacket, label and insert artwork for all the releases is included here, along with a few schematic details, to provide a true overview into the parameters of their world. What’s more, additional information can be heard in the material in its transferred-for-CD form, which has corrected inadequacies in several of the original pressings.”
