First vinyl edition of Andrew Pekler's Cue, originally released as a CD by Kranky in 2007. Reissued by the Kiev, Ukraine-based Muscut label (founded by Dmytro Nikolaienko) under exclusive license from Kranky, Ltd. Limited edition of 300. From Andrew Pekler: "Typically, library music albums were not available to the general public but were marketed directly to film, TV and commercial production companies. Judging by the information provided on the record sleeves, these consumers of library music were assumed to have little interest in the identities of the individuals who actually wrote and played the music, the musicians' names often being relegated to the very small print. Instead, it appears that the functional aspects of the product were of foremost importance; the persistently generic names of the tracks and their descriptions, durations and suggestions for their usage are the ubiquitous features of library album packaging. At the same time, the name of the production studio itself is given the kind of front cover top-billing usually reserved for a performer or composer (or to brand names on boxes of corn flakes)."
