Double 180 gram vinyl LP pressing. El Oso (Spanish for The Bear), released in 1998, was the third and final album by the New York City band Soul Coughing. The album is marked by a deep drum and bass influence. Before starting work on the album, the band toured with Full Cycle DJs Krust and Die and by a scattershot approach to production: Tchad Blake (Soul C's Ruby Vroom, Latin Playboys, Sheryl Crow), Pat Dillett (They Might Be Giants, Doveman, Mary J. Blige), and British drum and bass DJ Optical (Goldie, Grooverider, Ed Rush). Artist Jim Woodring (Frank) drew the cartoon "monkey-bear" on the disc's cover.
