God Street Wine will release a 25th anniversary boxed set this December. The collection will include six audio CDs, as well as one DVD. Here’s a list of what you’ll be getting from the set, straight from the band’s website:
“DISC 1: BAG Our first indie CD, originally released in 1992, remixed in 2012 by original recording engineer Joe Rogers. Includes “Borderline,” “Hellfire,” “Waiting For the Tide,” and 9 other fan faves.”
“DISC 2: WHO’S DRIVING: LIVE FROM EAST WEST AND IN-BETWEEN The live album we recorded in 1993 in exchange for a new van. Contains the best of our earliest, wildest, most roadworthy material including “Driving West,” “Imogene” and “Feel The Pressure.” Remastered for this release.”
“DISCS 3 & 4: $1.99 ROMANCES: RECORDED LIVE AT TRI STUDIOS AUGUST 2012. When we were invited to do a live broadcast from Bob Weir’s Tamalpais Research Institute in the summer of 2012 we knew we had to do something special, so we re-created our fans’ favorite GSW album. $1.99 was originally recorded for Geffen in 1994, and included “Molly,” “Thirsty,” “Ballroom,” “Into The Sea,” and 11 other tracks. This double-disc performance also includes bonus tracks with Bob Weir and Shana Morrison.”
“DISCS 5 & 6: GOTS TO REWIND This double-CD compilation features a full 29 never before released studio tracks, from the band’s first demo, recorded in October 1988, to demos recorded in preparation for a 1998 album that was never released. Some of these cuts will be familiar to Winos, like “Epiphany,” “Electrocute,” and “Straight Line,” while others like “Don’t Say Goodbye” and “Where The Days Go” have never been heard before live or otherwise.”
“DISC 7: All The Way To HERE DVD – A 90-minute documentary directed by longtime Wino and TV Producer Lynn Kestenbaum. The DVD also includes a juicy selection of live HD video performances. Learn more here.”
“Along with these SEVEN discs there is a 32-page illustrated booklet with liner notes written by Jambase editor Scott Bernstein, and a moving essay about the early days of GSW by onetime manager Ed Looram.”
Fans will be able to pre-order the set on November 20, and it will be shipped to them the second week of December.
As previously reported, God Street Wine will also be playing two 25th anniversary shows at The Gramercy Theater on Friday, December 20 and Saturday, December 21. Tickets to those concerts are now on sale.
