Auf Lager!

Steve Wynn wurde zunächst bekannt als Kopf und Songwriter von The Dream Syndicate, doch auch seine Karriere nach Auflösung der Band ist zweifellos sehr beeindruckend. Real Gone Music und Steve Wynn haben nun zusammen eine Werkschau unter dem Titel "Decade" zusammengestellt, die 11 CDs umfasst, die Wynn in den Jahren 1995 bis 2005 veröffentlicht hat, zum großen Teil mit vielen Outtakes und Demos versehen.
Die Zahlen sind beeindruckend: 166 Songs, 57 davon bisher unveröffentlicht, sowie 31 weitere Raritäten! Über die Hälfte des 11-CD-Sets besteht aus entweder unbekannten Aufnahmen oder solchen, die fast unmöglich waren zu bekommen. Die anderen Stücke stammen aus folgenden Alben: Die US-Releases von "Melting In The Dark", "Sweetness And Light", "My Midnight", "Here Come The Miracles", "Static Transmission" und "…Tick…Tick…Tick", des weiteren die nur in Deutschland erschienene Compilation "The Emusic Singles Collection" sowie einer weiteren nur in Europa erschienenen Zusammenstellung, "Pick Of The Litter".

Wo kommen all die unveröffentlichten Stücke her? Nun, während dieser 10-jährigen Periode nahm Steve Wynn dutzende von Songs zuhause oder in Studios auf. Viele dieser Stücke wurden neu aufgenommen und zu unvergesslichen Stücken seines Kataloges. Andere Songs wurde beiseite gelegt und vergessen. Für "Decade" hörten sich der langjährige Steve Wynn- und Dream Syndicate-Archivar Pat Thomas zusammen mit Steve in wohl hundert Stunden durch unveröffentlichte Aufnahmen und stellten diese großartige Box zusammen, die nicht nur remasterte Versionen von einigen der besten Alben Wynns enthält, sondern auch erstmals in den USA erhältliche zwei rare nur in Europa erschienene Titel. Einige dieser Alben wurden mit Steves langjähriger Band aufgenommen - Linda Pitmon am Schlagzeug, Jason Victor (Gitarre) und Dave DeCastro am Bass. Hin und wieder waren auch Studiogäste wie Chris Cacavas, Howe Gelb von Giant Sand, Barbara Manning, Chris Brokaw und Thalia Zedek von der Band Come, Tony Maimone von Pere Ubu, John Convertino von Calexico, Rich Gilbert sowie viele andere bei den Aufnahmen dabei.
Bei so viel Material muss das detailliert beschrieben werden, und so hat Steve Wynn das Alles selbst notiert und Geschichten hinter den Songs verfasst. Dazu kommen Anmerkungen von Pat Thomas und langjährigen Weggefährten Wynns - zusammengefasst in einem farbigen 48-Seiten-Buch!

In stock!

Steve Wynn first gained fame as lead singer and songwriter for the legendary Paisley Underground outfit The Dream Syndicate. But his post-Dream Syndicate solo career is the equal of any indie-rock singer-songwriter you'd care to name. Now, Real Gone Music and Steve Wynn have joined forces to release Decade (yup, the Neil Young reference is deliberate), an 11-CD set that chronicles, with lavish deluxe editions, the guitar-driven albums Wynn recorded between 1995 and 2005, most of which have been long out-of-print.
The statistics on this box set are mind-blowing: 166 tracks, 57 of them totally unreleased, plus 31 other rarities! That's right'over half of this 11-CD set consists of either hitherto unknown recordings or tracks that have been almost impossible to find! As for the other tracks, they hail from the following albums: the American releases Melting In The Dark, Sweetness and Light, My Midnight, Here Come The Miracles, Static Transmission, and 'Tick'Tick'Tick, and the German-only compilation entitled The Emusic Singles Collection (rare tracks from another European-only release, a collection of rarities entitled Pick of the Litter, appear here as well).

So where do all the unreleased tracks come from? Well, during this 10-year period, Steve Wynn recorded dozens of songs ' sometimes at home and occasionally in a proper studio. Many of those songs got re-recorded and revamped and became key memorable parts of his catalog. Other songs got tossed away and forgotten. For Decade, long-time Steve Wynn (and Dream Syndicate) archivist Pat Thomas in cooperation with Steve Wynn listened to about a hundred hours of unreleased tapes and compiled this amazing box set that not only includes remastered (by Mike Milchner of SonicVision) versions of some of Steve Wynn's best albums but also the first American release of the two rare European only titles. And ' it bears saying again ' 57 previously unreleased recordings that not even hardcore tape traders have heard! Several of these albums were recorded with Steve Wynn's core band of Linda Pitmon on drums, Dream Syndicate guitarist Jason Victor, and long-time Miracle 3 bass player Dave DeCastro. Along the way, there are appearances from Green On Red keyboardist Chris Cacavas, Giant Sand's Howe Gelb, indie chanteuse Barbara Manning, Chris Brokaw & Thalia Zedek of Come, Tony Maimone of Pere Ubu, John Convertino of Calexico, Rich Gilbert and many others. With so much material, you need a program'and so Steve Wynn himself has penned very detailed notes that tell the stories behind the origins of all 57y previously unreleased songs! Plus essays from box set producer Pat Thomas and several of Wynn's long time bandmates. And a pile of previously unseen photos...all inside a mammoth, full-color 48-page book!
