Shellac – Excellent Italian Greyhound (2007)(320 kb/s)

Excellent Italian Greyhound is the title of Shellac‘s fourth album. It was released on June 5, 2007. The album’s title is a reference to drummer Todd Trainer‘s Italian Greyhound, Uffizi. The album was recorded at Electrical Audio and mastered at Abbey Road by Steve Rooke. The drawings for Excellent Italian Greyhound were created by Jay Ryan from the band Dianogah. As well as a hand screened obi sleeve surrounding the jacket, there are several pictures taken by Joel Larson. As with 1000 Hurts, the vinyl pressing of the album includes an unmarked CD version at no extra charge (CD and LP+CD releases are similarly priced). The band encourages listeners to purchase the vinyl to hear the record as it was intended.

Voice-over king Ken Nordine appears uncredited on the song ‘Genuine Lulabelle’. The introduction to ‘Spoke’ includes a cover version of the ‘Rotosound Strings’ radio commercial from The Who‘s 1967 album The Who Sell Out.

In the run-out groove, there is a text etching. Side One – ‘Pronto Prova…’ Side Two – ‘A Isamu Sta Lapa!’
