GREEN RIVER 'Dry As A Bone' 2LP
Reissue! The story of Seattle's rise to global rock supremacy in the late '80s and early '90s begins with Green River. The mini-LP Dry As A Bone, which came out in 1987, was released as a single CD —but they've been unavailable on vinyl for years. Now, these slices of Seattle music history are not only back in print, they're accompanied by items from the vaults that had been forgotten about for decades. Dry As A Bone was recorded at Jack Endino's Reciprocal Recording in 1986, and it shows the band in furious form, with Arm's yowl battling Fairweather and Gossard's ferocious guitar playing on "This Town" and "Unwind" opening as a slow bluesy grind then jump-starting itself into a hyperactive chase.
