Northern Spy reissues the first three records by Cleveland, Ohio, post-hardcore band Craw in a limited edition vinyl box set, 1993-1997. All out of print for two decades or more, these full-lengths-1993's self-titled debut, 1994's Lost Nation Road and 1997's Map, Monitor, Surge-complete a story that concluded on Bodies for Strontium 90, released in 2002 by Hydra Head Records. The new box set lovingly reintroduces these records in a deluxe package including three remastered double LPs and an exhaustive 200-page book. The book, designed by the team behind one-of-a-kind visually driven label Aqualamb-who have also overseen visuals for the entire release-includes a wealth of unpublished photos and ephemera, an exhaustive oral history of Craw drawn from newly conducted interviews, and a detailed timeline of band activities, shows and releases, stretching from Craw's 1988 formation to their 2002 break-up.
Each record is protected within its record sleeve by a white vellum anti-dust sleeve.
All items are shipped brand-new and unopened in original packaging. Every record is shipped in original factory-applied shrink wrap and has never been touched by human hands.
