The last of the 'all-home-recordings albums' by THE MOUNTAIN GOATS and the only one about which that claim is true, All Hail West Texas was originally released as a free-standing compact disc on the late, lamented Emperor Jones. That was about a decade ago. The songs were originally transferred from the cassettes onto which they were recorded to 1/2" reels at Tiny Telephone by ALEX NEWPORT. Remastered from those reels, along with 7 unearthed songs from the two surviving contemporaneous cassettes, All Hail West Texas stands as the peak of the Mountain Goats' home recording era, a time people like to refer to as 'when JOHN DARNIELLE had his four-track,' except John did not actually use a four-track.
