Although this was reportedly a campaign that Parr himself tried to discourage Chaperone Records from donating to at one point, he came around. This live album, titled I Dreamed I Met Paul Bunyan Last Night by Parr, has been assembled on a 42-minute LP in a package with a DVD of the fillm, and an MP3 download card featuring the "complete soundtrack" of 13 songs. Chaperone is putting it out on September 24, and preorders are available here.
