Portugal. The Man – In The Mountain In The Cloud (1st Press)

Posted: August 2, 2011 in Vinyl

In The Mountain In The Cloud is Portugal. The Man’s major label debut on Atlantic Records. I will have to go back through their albums for a final say, but I feel this is their best album to date. Keeping in tradition of Portugal. The Man releases, the artwork is great and was done by John Gourley and Austin Sellers.

All copies of the first pressing were pressed on white vinyl and will be kept in print for the present time. If however, they give the album a true second pressing, it will be pressed on black vinyl according to the band’s manager. Given that the record is being kept in print and not limited at all there is no pressing info to be had.

In March 2018 a second pressing was announced, which will be on 180 gram black vinyl. So it turns out the band’s manager was correct with what he said almost seven years ago. I’m not entirely sure if this record actually went OOP because I wasn’t actively looking to buy a copy since I already have one, but no doubt the timing of this re-press was intentional in order to ride the coattails of the band’s Grammy win and mainstream popularity that came with their latest album; Woodstock.
