F♯ A♯ ∞ (which you may pronounce as F-sharp, A-sharp, Infinity ) is the first actual album released by Godspeed You Black Emperor!, back when their exclamation mark was still in the end of the band’s name. The album is a collage of many instrumental pieces, spoken word monologues, field recordings, tape loops and other experimentations, most of it recorded at the Hotel2Tango in the Mile End of Montreal. Some of those recordings date back as far as 1993, four years before the LP was released by Constellation Records.

F A ∞ by Godspeed You! Black Emperor, released 08 June 1998 1. The Dead Flag Blues 2. East Hastings 3. Providence. Simply the best album ever. Merging realism and dystopian dreams of the future into one mezmerizing wall of sound, one experience that unfolds further and further the longer you listen to it. In the end, there is no hope, but no sadness either. It just takes me to a peaceful place time and time again.

This album is to music for me what the Iliad and the Odyssey are to me for reading, an absolutely radical experience to say the least. The outro on Providence literally scared the absolute shit out of me. 2-3 minutes of deafening silence and then BOOM!! What a finish. This album didn't let me down. GY!BE is a band that pretty much uses the real Post-Rock meaning. If you listen to their music with attention, you'll see things, imagine things, FEEL things. That's why people say their music is cinematic. It's almost like watching a film.

Godspeed You Black Emperor! would more than likely agree with this. However mysterious they want their personas to be, their music still carries the weight of the human essence to an extent that no other band has or will probably again. However, it still remains as a vital component of the album, with sparkling melodies and same type of ferver and enthusiasm that is spread throughout the rest of the album, making it blissful and inspiring in the process, something that few, if any bands, will every accomplish in our lifetime. We can all learn something from listening to Godspeed You Black Emperor!, especially in the sort of delusional times that we live in. Our own fate as humans is beyond our grasp, but there is hope.

This one doesn't come with John Train insert?

Mine did.

Thanks for the source!

LP jacket made from 80lb. burgundy textured uncoated cardstock with blind embossed front cover text. Three different front cover images (train, water tower, highway lights) are hand-glued on the front cover (original first run of 500 featured black and white darkroom prints; subsequent editions are offset printed). Back covers are individually hand-drawn with illuminated cross icon and catalogue number and are hand-stamped with Constellation logo; all in silver ink. Inserts include a penny crushed on Montreal railroad tracks, blueprint album graphic and notes, credit sheet and reproduction of an early GY!BE show handbill - all placed inside a plain manila envelope (original first run of 500 featured acetone transfers hand-printed on each envelope). Additional 8"x8" insert card of train locomotive image silkscreened in various colours on various recycled papers over the years.

Yadon
That all sounds right, could you provide a source for that info?
Fordrellador
And is this a limited edition? Anyone knows the number of copies?
Boraston
can someone tell me EXCATLY what's the difference between this and the first 500 ltd ones?
Doath
Look at the pages, the differences are there - aside from the obvious one you stated yourself: they're different pressings, and should be regarded as such. One is very rare, one is not.
Kitaxe
The print glued on the front is not a actual photographic print, but a regular offset print.
Gavinrage
read the description for the first release on this website
Sardleem
I'm late to this reply, but there are a few good giveaways. If it came in a plastic bag that said "original 1997 lp" then it's a reprint. If the photo on the cover is a print and NOT glossy, then its a reprint, and if the back is NOT numbered, then it's the reprint.
Thundershaper
The original has a real photo, the reissue has a print..
Cezel
Man thanks for this, by the looks of it I THINK I have an original. I have a photo glued onto the front as opposed to being printed on the sleeve, the 'Faulty Schematics' print has blotchy patches around the white border and the gig flyer is from 1997. However, my manilla envelope doesn't have a transfer on it. Hmmmm :S
Purestone
The photo on the front and the "faulty schematics of ruined machine" insert.The photo has to be a photo, not a print.The insert has to be made with ink and not on a printer.There is two images here on discogs of this particular insert; the original one, has ink scuffs in the white perimeter, the other one is clear cut, clearly made digitally on a printer, instead of in a ink press...best regardsSoren
Still In Mind
Exactly? : "original first run of 500 featured black and white darkroom prints; subsequent editions are offset printed"
Winenama
The main differences in the first 500 are that the pictures on the cover are of much higher quality (glossy, actual dark room photos) and the jacket cover is a darker purple. The back left corner has the edition number hand-written in silver ink (in my case, I have 297/500). The manila envelope that holds the inserts has an ink transfer on it—I believe they're different for each. Most of the same inserts are included (different concert bill, additional insert info from Constellation), as is the penny. The "Reverend Gary Davis" illustration and "Faulty Schematics" are there too. That's really about it.
Rolorel
That's not quite right. The reissue does have a picture glued on the front, but it is a digital print not a proper photograph as in the first 500 copies.
bass
The Exact difference (Should) be the photograph on the cover, which on the original is a photograph glued onto the cover paper, where on the reissue, it is a print - this means not a picture glued onto a cover, but a cover with a printed image in the middle, ieg. one piece of paper...some people say, that you are able to see, on the original, which number of the 500 copies, it is.I haven't been able to find this, the small amount of time, i was holding an original - otherwise that would also be a difference...
Nanecele
I found that the handbill in my copy was from 1999 therefore making it a repress. But it might be different for you. I hope this was helpful.
