Phil Elv(e)rum
(who are you, voice in headphones?) ---------------------------------------------------------------------

Green (redundant releases, album versions in different places, samplers etc…)
Blue (unknown release info, as in, no one is sure if this release ever happened or will)
Orange (random, unofficial, not exactly “discography” stuff, promos, etc. that I've come across)

*Redundant reissues and formats of releases may not be scattered chronologically, they are sometimes grouped with the first appearance of a release (i.e. the 1st and 2nd pressing of “It Was Hot…”, for example, are listed next to each other even though they clearly came out at different times in the actual chronological order). This is done for clarity’s sake and ease of seeing a release's particular history when I do not have a clear idea when a later release was put out. Most especially with the PW digital albums, which were all clearly put out at some later date than the actual releases of the albums, though I have no way of determining when.

*One should also note a new button in the top right hand corner of the blog, the "Discography" link, which will, theoretically, provide easy access to this page, which I will attempt to be constantly vigilant of updating. For some reason at the moment it insists on pulling up the entire front page of the blog rather than just the discography, a bug which I hope to fix soon. If anyone reading this sees that I have something wrong, erroneous, in the wrong place in the time-line or otherwise has any further info about any of these releases please let me know. It's a work-in-progress...

*Also, regarding the very first releases, ff anyone can confirm or deny how I have this set up let me know. Not sure if Tugboat or Mostly Clouds... came first. Not sure the years these were released. Not even sure if the band was called Tugboat or The Tugboat Fiasco.

Known live recordings
(most formerly downloadable at the, now defunct, Mt. Eerie Preservation Society website)--------------------

*Because of the sometimes confusing labeling accompanying these live downloads all recordings will be listed chronologically without attempting to differentiate between “Mount Eerie” shows and “Microphones shows”

**I will eventually, hopefully, be providing links to download ZIP files all of these recordings sometime in the near future.

***I would also love, eventually to add Youtube postings of live recordings etc... to this section. But. at the moment, the prospect of doing that feels overwhelming. Check back.

One is a tiny round picture of the moon, one is a sunburst of the PW label information, one is an earlier version of the PW info with what appears to be a similar flourish as the "Wind" packing tape, one is a sunburst which informs you that the LP you are holding includes a CD version of the same)

  1. This comment has been removed by the author.

  2. I have a copy of the glow pt 2 with the insert and recently got an unopened copy as well. Upon opening i was surprised to see it had a poster instead. Are there any differences besides insert vs poster? The vinyl and cover look identical, minus the previously unopened one being a bit more vivid in color. Strange.

  3. yeah i'm perplexed about this as well. It seems to me there is a version with the poster and no insert, and one with the insert and no poster. My guess was that these are 1st and 2nd prints though I have no info to back that up and would love some. I've also seen things that suggest there was a European release of this vinyl as well and i so far have no info on that...

  4. I have an LP copy of 'No Flashlight' that was sold to the record store I was working for a few years ago. The guy who sold it said he bought it at a show. It's the record from No Flashlight but the sleeve is a screenprinted inside-out Singers LP cover. Apparently Phil had some extras of each or something?
    Are you familiar with this? Any back story?

  5. Hey, late reply on this. Yeah, I forget the exact number at this point, it's like 144 or something. He just had this random number of extra copies of that LP but without the sleeve so he made those "limited edition" ones with the inside out singers covers and photocopied version of all the info from the foldout. It's pretty badass in it's own way.
