New West Records is proud to present Vic Chesnutt's second studio album West of Rome. Meticulously remastered and pressed on vinyl for the very first time, West of Rome is widely regarded by fans and hailed by critics as Chesnutt's best record. Originally produced by R.E.M.'s Michael Stipe, this vinyl pressing features an alternate tracklisting curated by Vic and Stipe in which "Latent/Blatant" no longer kicks off the album and is moved to the bonus tracks. In addition, the closing instrumental which was "hidden" in the original release is now titled "Little Fugue" and has been resequenced as the fourteenth track. West of Rome's two studio outtakes, "Nathan" and "Where's The Clock" appear in the bonus tracks. Also included are four-track demos and live versions of songs from the same time period. This pressing is West of Rome as it was meant to be.
