Mercury Rev All Is Dream - Deluxe Edition CD

 

 

 

Formed in Buffalo, New York, in 1989, Mercury Rev quickly grew to become leading figures in left field alternative rock. The band had developed their own brand of serene, piano-based Americana with the acclaimed, best-selling LP Deserter's Songs (1998). All Is Dream, the sequel to Deserter's Songs, was originally released on V2 in 2001 and boasted a more expansive, cinematic production than it's predecessor.

Cherry Red Records are proud to announce the release of a deluxe edition of this classic album, compiled and coordinated in conjunction with Mercury Rev's twin lynchpins, Jonathan Donaghue (vocals, guitar) and Sean 'Grasshopper' Mackowiak (guitar, keyboards, clarinet, tettix wave accumulator). Joining the original ten-track album are a disc of B-sides, outtakes and demos (many of them previously unissued), a whole disc of hitherto unheard in-concert recordings from the accompanying tour and a French radio session. Highlights include the band's unique interpretations of 'Streets Of Laredo' (Marty Robbins), 'Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds' (The Beatles) and 'I Keep A Close Watch' (John Cale) as well as newly heard compositions such as 'Mascara Tears' and 'Silver And Gold'. This expanded edition of All Is Dream is presented as a plush, hardback book containing original album lyrics, lots of visuals and new sleeve-notes by Mojo's Keith Cameron with fresh quotes from Jonathan and Grasshopper.
