Posted: April 28, 2023 in MUSIC

The Dream Syndicate reveal two new tracks from the newly expanded 40th Anniversary Edition of ‘The Days Of Wine and Roses: History Kinda Pales When It and You Are Aligned’ (4xCD) out 23rd June. Collecting 54 songs from the original line-up, including 10 hard-to-find rarities and 31 never released recordings. Listen to ‘When You Smile (Down There EP Version)/Too Little, Too Late (Kendra Vocal, Live)’

This exciting Box Set News! “history kinda pales when it and you are aligned” is a 4-CD collection coming out this summer on Fire Records but we’ll be selling pre-release copies on our UK tour starting next Monday. The box is in the style of the “What Can I Say, No Regrets” reimagining of “Out of the Grey” set that came out last year and is comprised entirely of material from 1982–several dozen early live performances and demos that you haven’t heard before including cover songs by Johnny Cash, Janis Joplin and The Who (!)

One of the most celebrated bands to come out of the Los Angeles “Paisley Underground” scene of the ’80s, the Dream Syndicate adored the intricate wordplay and edgy energy of ‘Highway 61 Revisited’ era Bob Dylan, as well as the noisy guitars and bracing darkness of the Velvet Underground.

An exceptional early ‘80s guitar-powered gem, remastered in full and includes a wealth of unreleased material. This newly expanded 4 CD collection includes tracks from main protagonist Steve Wynn’s earlier combo 15 Minutes, the debut EP, astounding cover renditions (Johnny Cash, Janis Joplin, The Who), recordings of the band’s first ever rehearsal, along with several visceral live concerts from the pre-album era.

The deluxe box features liner notes by band historian Pat Thomas and recent interviews with Kendra Smith, engineer Paul Cutler and producer Chris D.
