Blink-182 to repress Buddha on vinyl

Just two weeks after their reissue of Enema of the State Blink 182 will release their debut, Buddha, on vinyl on December 15, 2009.

Originally recorded in 1993, but not released until 1998, it was recorded over three rainy nights on a 24 track recording system at Double Time Studios in San Diego, California, according to the CD's liner notes. The album was one of the few Blink-182 albums released with the band name as Blink.

The album was first released on cassette, but was later re-released on Kung Fu Records featuring a remix and remaster of the original album with different cover art and a different track listing. The remastered version was also available on cassette and vinyl, but is now out of print. According to the CD's liner notes on the reissue, the demo was originally released on a limited cassette tape with no title and a picture of Maitreya Buddha on the front.
