  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    The black vinyl is ‘new old stock’ pressed in 1986. The covers are handmade in 2016, with color photos glued to a one-color printed black LP jacket. I hand-wrote the album title and signed.

    Please note this important disclaimer: Due to the age of the unplayed vinyl, there is some warping. If you are opposed to any warpage on your LPs, please do not purchase this item. I asked the most exacting Blacktape vinyl customer to review a copy. He writes: “True, I like to have a ‘perfect’ record, but still this plays out and the warping issue is not audible. The only way to know it’s warped is to look at it. The warp on mine is not a bother to me. Others might have issues with it, of course. When I replayed my copy with a record weight it was flat warp free.”

    Also keep in mind the vinyl has been in storage for 30 years, so the album will need a wet cleaning to remove dust and such.

lyrics

( Farsi: my room is black. i was blue. i went for a walk by the ocean. the ocean was black. i went into the water and i was no more. )
from the black house, we return. clutching secrets we must learn.
i felt always, so alone. never noticed how you hurt.
darkness fell over us, we had lost. but with this answer, we now see.
never feel alone again, never feel so cold. never feel it’s all on me but never lose the pain.
see the black over me, know it won’t go. know you all feel this way, know we will survive.
seeing you cheers me up, knowing you feel the same. seeing you helps me to live, i hope i help you too.
on your way back, you can live. from the black house, we’ve returned.
