LCD Soundsystem Releasing Complete Farewell Concert As Hefty Five-Record Set

Remember the big deal LCD Soundsystem made a few years ago when they played their massive farewell concert at Madison Square Garden? It was even made into a movie, ‘Shut Up and Play the Hits.’

Now the entirety of that four-hour show from April 2, 2011, is coming to a massive five-record set just in time for Record Store Day on April 19. ‘The Long Goodbye: LCD Soundsystem Live at Madison Square Garden’ will at first be available on vinyl only.

So, if you couldn’t make it to that final show, and you didn’t see that movie about the final show, you can now hit your local record store on the same day everyone else will be there to pick up a hefty collection of vinyl records that document the entire final show.

The track list is huge, covering everything from LCD Soundsystem classics like ‘Daft Punk Is Playing at My House’ and ‘Losing My Edge’ along with a cover of Nilsson‘s ‘Jump Into the Fire’ and a sprawling version of ’45:33′ with Reggie Watts.

If you don’t feel like heading out on Record Store Day or don’t even own a turntable, you can wait a month and beat both the crowds and the vinyl freaks. ‘The Long Goodbye’ will be released digitally on May 20; it will also be available in the five-LP vinyl set that day at the usual places you buy records (if you’re not buying them at record stores on Record Store Day, that is).

So will this ‘Long Goodbye’ be the final goodbye? Your guess is as good as ours at this point.
