Dinosaur Jr. Where You Been: Deluxe Import Colored Vinyl 2LP
Dinosaur Jr. carved a singular path through the latter half of the '80s and early-90s, issuing a number of highly influential albums in the process before finding a home with Sire Records.
Where You Been, their fifth record, emerged in 1993, at the height of enthusiasm for grunge and the alternative American rock scene the band had long been part of.
Produced by a new line-up of the group (longtime drummer Murph and new bassist Mike Johnson completing the three-piece), the album became the band's most successful up to that point, reaching No. 50 in the US (where it sold over a quarter of a million copies) and No. 10 in the UK album charts, and spawning the hit single "Start Choppin."
Released to unanimously positive reviews, and containing many tracks that would become staples and fan favorites, Where You Been continued Dinosaur Jr's global ascent, being issued simultaneously across the US, Europe, Australasia, Asia and South America.
Remastered and presented here on vinyl for the first time with related singles, B-sides and John Peel session recordings, and accompanied by in-depth sleevenotes from Mojo's Keith Cameron (based on recent and exclusive interviews with J Mascis), this deluxe edition colored vinyl 2LP-set provides a glimpse of a band in rampant form riding a hard-earned wave of popularity and credibility.
