News: The Long Ryders
The word is out, Cherry Red Records are indeed compiling the ultimate, as yet untitled, Long Ryders compilation.
Released in late September the first three CDs are a compilation of the best tracks (with a few unreleased gems thrown in) from every stage of the founders of alt-country’s career.
The fourth CD is a previously unreleased smokin’ live performance from a Benelux festival in March 1985. Originally a radio broadcast and only aired twice back in the day it has been unheard since, neither bootlegged or rumoured.
And the best thing about it, besides the Long Ryders audibly playing at the very top of their game, is it features many songs previously unreleased in live versions as well as a few surprises!
