ANALOG–a collection of alternatives–is the first compilation solo album by Sinner Songwriter Jean Koning associated with Record Store Day. It was released on 20 April 2013 by Record Store Day Exclusive, under licence of Eden Records and Coffee And Cheesecake Records. It was produced by Jean Koning and Haruomi Hosono and compiled for sales in Japan only.
The Japanese album ANALOG–which consists of songs from Man Enough To Be A Woman, Wake Up In L.A., the Japanese multi-artist compilation Bathtub Full Of Murder, the two BC exclusives Miniatures, and two non-album tracks "Language", and "When Doves Cry".
“I was extremely excited about the whole Japanese ANALOG project, since the Japanese brought to me what both my record-companies could not: sound! Sound the way the songs were meant to be. The streaming services were still in their infancy; and they didn’t care about the sound-quality–they still don’t, mind you. So, what the Japanese did was provide a blue-print of sound-engineering, which I in return studied and built upon for the albums that came after…
And you know the Japanese are sound-aficionados. I'm extremely thrilled they asked me to do something as exciting as this. So, what you're getting is the most possible perfect sound for the vinyl format. Thanks to the Japanese company who ignited and engineered this all. Also a big hug to my favourite photographer and, as we happen to mention him, best friend S.T. Vacirca for the pre-facelift photo, which decorates the sleeve. I'm grateful for just about everything here. Arigatōgozaimashita; or: ありがとうございました!”
