The last of the 'all-home-recordings albums' by the Mountain Goats and the only one about which that claim is true, 'All hail West Texas' was originally released as a free-standing compact disc on the late, lamented Emperor Jones. That was about a decade ago. The songs were originally transferred from the cassettes onto which they were recorded to 1/2" reels at Tiny Telephone by Alex Newport. John got really excited when he realized his tapes were being EQ'd by the guy from Fudge Tunnel. Remastered from those reels, along with 7 unearthed songs from the two surviving contemporaneous cassettes, 'All Hail West Texas' stands as the peak of the Mountain Goats' home recording era.
