- 180 gram vinyl
- 2 vinyl-only hidden tracks hidden beneath the center labels
- 1 hidden track plays at 78 RPM, one plays at 45 RPM, making this a 3-speed record
- Side A plays from the inside out
- Dual-groove technology: plays an electric or acoustic intro for “Just One Drink” depending on where needle is dropped. The grooves meet for the body of the song.
- Matte finish on Side B, giving the appearance of an un-played 78 RPM record
- Both sides end with locked grooves
- Vinyl pressed in seldom-used flat-edged format
- Dead wax area on Side A contains a hand-etched hologram by Tristan Duke of Infinity Light Science, the first of its kind on a vinyl record
- Absolutely zero compression used during recording, mixing and mastering
- Different running order from the CD/digital version
- LP utilizes some mixes different from those used on CD and digital version

Dude is a wizard.

Edit: It only costs $20 too. There's not a single thing wrong with this.

What exactly does a "locked groove" on vinyl mean? This sounds super awesome a treat for the fans.

Insanely cool records. Don't listen to his music, but this might be something cool just to have in the collection.

Most bands/artists his level charge upwards $30 simply for a 180gram record. This is much cooler and still remains cheaper. Really shows how dedicated the guy is to his fans and to the format.
