Limited edition of 1000 on 180g gold colour vinyl with printed inner. Richmond Fontaine’s 8th album We Used to Think The Freeway Sounded Like A River, is Richmond Fontaine at their strongest with Willy Vlautin taking over a year to write, most of it autobiographical. The CD was originally released through El Cortez/Décor Records in 2009 and this is the first time Décor will release the vinyl. It was previously released in 2011 by Diverse in a limited pressing. This was the band’s last album recorded with JD Foster and is still seen as one of their strongest. “Raw, autobiographical brilliance” – 5/5 Uncut “A dreamy, reverb-laden masterpiece” – 5/5 Sunday Express “Beautiful slices of Americana”- 4/5 Q “Vlautin’s gift for observational storytelling helps make this their finest record” – Mail On Sunday.
