Their classic second album for Elektra Records on vinyl for the very first time. The 180g deluxe 3LP set features the original 1999 album, a 2021 remix by Grammy winning producer, Vance Powell, and a bonus disc of unreleased 1998 demos all mastered from the original analog tapes.

Old 97’s "Fight Songs (Deluxe Edition)" is Run Out Groove's new featured title this month; voted in by fans. Pioneers of the 1990s alt-country movement, Old 97’s have been together with their original lineup for over 25 years and have released 12 studio albums. Run Out Groove is releasing their classic Elektra Records album FIGHT SONGS on vinyl for the very first time.

When asked about the album finally seeing a release on vinyl, guitarist Ken Bethea said, When Run Out Groove approached us with the idea of releasing “Fight Songs” for the first time on vinyl, not only were we excited, but also immediately thought of the idea of a remix. A chance to turn back time 23 years and we coaxed our current producer/mixer Vance Powell (Jack White, Chris Stapleton, Phish, Sturgill Simpson) onto the project and he agreed with one caveat: no slick, all rock…

Ken goes on to say, For the band, this 3LP set is a wild trip back in time. It includes our original recording of 1998’s “Fight Songs”, the Vance Powell remix that allows us to experience an alternative “what if” version of the album, and this little nugget of what the band sounded like back in those days as we rehearsed and sussed out our songs. We are blown away by these sounds. We know you will be blown away as well.”
