Soul Asylum's sophomore release, reissued
Produced by Bob Mould (Hüsker Dü)
New art, liner notes, plus rare ephemera from the collection of the band's Dave Pirner
Reissue co-produced by Twin/Tone co-founder Peter Jesperson and Grammy-winning producer Cheryl Pawelski
Soul Asylum first hit the Minneapolis music scene in early 1981. Core members Dave Pirner, Dan Murphy, and Karl Mueller met at local punk rock shows. Coming up in the shadow of formidable bands such as Hüsker Dü and The Replacements, who they were all big fans of, was daunting but, ultimately, it inspired them to make a name for themselves.
Soul Asylum stood out immediately because of their work ethic and smart, punky hard rock sound. They made four records for hometown label Twin/Tone Records before moving on to the majors; first A&M, then Columbia, where they scored two platinum albums and won a Best Rock Song Grammy for "Runaway Train." Reissue co-produced by Twin/Tone Records co-founder and Replacements manager, Peter Jesperson and Grammy-winner Cheryl Pawelsk.
