Limited edition. Exclusive release for RECORD STORE DAY 2023
Double LP expanded re-issue of Pearls Before Swine's classic debut, plus unreleased extras, including demos, rehearsals and alternative versions. With faithfully recreated original sleeve and extensive notes, all created in collaboration with the Tom Rapp Estate. The psychedelic-folk debut from “one of the most erudite, literate minds in rock… a stunning piece of work, from the nightmarish sleeve art - the "Hell Panel" from Hieronymus Bosch's 15th century painting "Garden Of Delights" - to the strange yet powerful songs.” AllMusic. “From moody, poetic gems to the anger and intensity of the bitter anti-war anthem, ‘Uncle John’. Fiercely unique and individual sounding.” Goldmine. “A high of psychedelic delicacy and deceptive urgency, one of his masterpieces.” Rolling Stone. Features bonus LP of unreleased material.
