Johann Johannsson - IBM 1401, A User's Manual (2017 Vinyl Reissue)

Never before pressed on vinyl, IBM 1401, A User's Manual, is one of Jóhann Jóhannsson’s most loved works.  Released in 2006, the decade since its release has seen Jóhann establish himself as one of the most important composers in the World today, most notably scoring movies such as Arrival, Sicario and The Theory of Everything.

The first ever pressing of IBM 1401, A User's Manual comes in a deluxe gatefold sleeve, having been reworked by Chris Bigg (v23) from his original design.  Pressed on clear vinyl, two live tracks recorded with the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra have also been added and are exclusive to the LP version of this release.
