Neutral Milk Hotel announce The Collected Works of Neutral Milk Hotel, a box set out February 24th on Merge, and which includes the first official release of the 2014 rendition of “Little Birds.” In 2011, bandleader Jeff Mangum collected nearly all of the band’s recorded output in a limited-edition box set, which he self-released under Neutral Milk Hotel Records, a small operation helmed by Mangum and his mother. The expanded edition of The Collected Works of Neutral Milk Hotel on Merge, the first & only edition widely available to record stores, includes both of their iconic full-length albums, In the Aeroplane Over the Sea (in gatefold sleeve) & an expanded double LP edition of On Avery Island. Also found in this set, a 12" picture disc of Jeff Mangum's famous Live at Jittery Joe's performance, as well as two 10-inch records (an extended version of the Everything Is EP w/ new art & a collection of acoustic demos from 1992-1995 titled Ferris Wheel on Fire). Then there are the 7"s for the previously mentioned Little Birds, an updated edition of the Holland, 1945” / “Engine” 7" & "You've Passed / Where You'll Find Me Now" single. As for the non-music collector goodies, the set also includes two 24" x 24" posters & a 2-sided postcard not available anywhere else. The whole set is assembled in a 12" two-piece telescoping casewrapped box (A slicker, larger box than the original 2011 version). Excluding both full-length albums, everything else included is exclusive to the box set & not available as a standalone item.
