VINYL LPs on MT Undertainment

DWM members always loved vinyl, so for as long as it was technically and financially possible, DWM went ahead and recorded and released as many vinyl albums as possible, many of which were released by MT Undertainment, owned by Joseph B. Raimond. At first, many of the albums were released on the Musical Tragedies label. Later, Marginal Talent was formed for experimental music, and DWM switched to that label. . Benefitting from good distribution, these early DWM vinyl LPs have since become collector’s items, as well as having played a big part in spreading the obscurity of DWM. Also be sure to check out our other pages featuring vinyl LPs: DWM limited editions as well as our releases on RRRecords. For vinyl singles, check our our page of singles released by MT Undertainment as well as singles on other labels. Finally, DWM has also released a few 10" vinyl albums as well as a few shaped vinyl records.
