Braid has always kept meticulous track of all of our releases, editions, formats, etc.

Right now we are up to about 6000 or so combinations, give or take a thousand. And so it SHOCKS me that over the course of the past 22 years of our existence, a Braid song has never been officially released on cassette.

Sure, we did cassette demos in 1993 and 1994, but those ultra limited versions were destined for the garbage cans of record labels that decided not to sign us, and thus, unofficial.

Polyvinyl to the rescue, then, and Polyvinyl to the rescue, now!

And all 6 releases to boot in a beautiful wooden box, with art by Jay Ryan, coincidentally the original bass player of Braid, despite his quitting after our first practice because he "couldn't count to 5 1/2." True story. We're really psyched with how this turned out and we hope you enjoy it.
