Limited edition. Exclusive release for RECORD STORE DAY 2023
“A high point in his recorded output.” Goldmine. Double LP expanded re-issue of Pearls Before Swine's follow up to ‘One Nation Underground’, plus a second disc of unreleased extras including demos, rehearsals and alternative versions. With a faithfully recreated original sleeve and extensive notes, produced in collaboration with the Tom Rapp Estate. “The near-brilliant follow-up intended as a defiant condemnation of the Vietnam War, it doesn't offer anthemic, fist-pounding protest songs. Instead, Tom Rapp vented his anger through surrealist poetry, irony, and historical reference.” AllMusic. “A high of psychedelic delicacy and deceptive urgency, one of his masterpieces.” Rolling Stone.
