1995´s 100% Fun is the third leg of Matthew Sweet´s Holy Trinity of Power Pop! Produced by Brendan O´Brien, it´s a densely-layered production full of grinding guitars, heavy bass lines and BIG drum sounds.
Intervention´s 19-track Expanded Edition 2x LP set is the defining presentation of this great album! While the original repertoire´s 12 tracks are bigger and better than ever, the 7 Bonus Tracks are on their own 12" 45 RPM 180-gram LP!
100% Fun´s album art was lovingly restored by Intervention´s Art Director Tom Vadakan, and printed as a gorgeous "Old Style" gatefold by Stoughton printing in LA. It´s printed on heavy stock and film-laminated for superior color depth, beauty and durability. The center labels are printed by Dorado.
100% Fun is 100% Analog Mastered from the Original Master Tapes by Ryan K. Smith at Sterling Sound. The Master Tapes are 30ips 1/2" analog reels, and the seven bonus tracks are on their own reel. Intervention´s cut is big, punchy and dynamic with plenty of producer Brendan O´Brien signature crunch completely intact. Matthew´s amazing vocals really shine here amid the layered densities of O´Brien´s mix. A big, bold improvement over the 1990s original LP, and so much better than the CD as to make that comparison a total farce.
