Fifty years after the last vinyl copy of “With Love & Squalor” was purchased by the luckiest kid on Earth, one of the most coveted pieces of circle-shaped music in music history is back. Obtaining the rights to reprint this album was an epic, almost fantastical struggle. Lawyers were involved. Pipe-wielding thugs. Unreadably long handwritten beseechments. We interrupted cocktail parties. We spray-painted limousines. We got the hashtag "#freeWL&S" trending for eight months. Finally, after what is destined to be one of the most frequently-told tales of music industry maneuvering, we have succeeded.
As befits a 50th anniversary edition, we’ve created a beautiful multi-page color insert (the original vinyl included none!), a refined packaging, and a kitten’s-nose-pink colored record that’s exclusively available here on our web store as a limited edition. Standard black vinyl is also available
