Matt Gray have finished a successful Kickstarter campaign for his fourth Reformation album titled “ReFourmation” with a vinyl option.
The release will be a 3LP limited to 250 copies. There are currently no further details of the packaging.
The campaign finished successfully on July 20, 2020 and vinyl copies were scheduled to release in March, 2022 and later pushed to Q4 2022. However, as of January, 2023 they have still not started shipping.
Matt Gray launched a Kickstarter for his Reformation 2 project, which included a vinyl option. The album features covers of other C64 composers’ music performed by Matt Gray.
The campaign was launched on April 8, 2017 and was succesfully funded and ended on April 30, 2017.
In late 2018 Matt Gray finished a Reformation 3 campaign that was intended to collect funds for the finishing of physical goods for Reformation/LN2 and Reformation 2.
The release is a 3LP on black vinyl. It is housed in a triple gatefold jacket with design by Sam Dyer and Ian Flory as well as game screenshots.
Vinyl rewards were scheduled for a September 2018 release, but were delayed multiple times before finally shipping in early July, 2022.
2LP released in 2001 by Enduro and L’Age D’Or. It comes with a 24-page booklet. The sound on this wasn’t recorded from a real C64 but from a PC emulating the SID sound chip from the C64. It contains 19 tracks from the games Turbo Outrun, BMX Kidz, Alloy Run, Kinetix, Boulder Dash, The Last Ninja, Crazy Comets, Yie Ar Kung-Fu, Bubble Bobble, Arkanoid, One Man And His Droid, Insects In Space, Boulder Dash II: Rockford’s Revenge, Starball, and Monty On The Run.
It should be noted that the songs on this release were not captured from a real Commodore 64, but from a PC emulator.
During a succesful Kickstarter campaign, for a Commodore 64 music compilation done in the style of Jean-Michel Jarre and Vangelis and created by C64Audio, backers could opt for a double vinyl option.
The release is a 2LP housed in a gatefold jacket with new artwork by Trevor Storey. It is limited to 250 numbered copies.
It was originally intended to release in February, 2016, but the entire campaign underwent some pretty hefty manufacturing delays, meaning it didn’t release until March, 2019.
