It's hard to believe it's been twelve years since Dan Snaith released his first album as Manitoba back in the spring of 2001. In fact, April 2013 marks the tenth anniversary of his breakthrough album Up in Flames, still the biggest selling album in The Leaf Label's history. To celebrate, Leaf is re-releasing his first three albums, making them available on vinyl for the first time in years. Not only that, but they're pressing 600 copies of each LP on colored vinyl, exclusively for Record Store Day 2013. All copies will also include a CD of the album. Subject to a well-documented lawsuit, Snaith was obliged to change his artist name to Caribou, which was first used for the release of 2005's The Milk of Human Kindness. Start Breaking My Heart and Up in Flames will be available for the first time under the Caribou name, with fully restored album artwork, while The Milk of Human Kindness will be an exact reproduction of the original vinyl release.
