Rough Trade have revealed their selection of Best Reissue Of The Year and we’re pleased to see The Lemonheads’ acclaimed album ‘Come On Feel (30th Anniversary Edition)’, landing in the 3rd position, following last year’s Best Reissue Of The Year with ‘It’s A Shame About Ray’.
Read the complete list below.
#3 The Lemonheads – Come On Feel (30th Anniversary Edition)
Expanded 30th anniversary re-issue of The Lemonheads’ classic 1993 album. The breakthrough record that took American alt rock global and catapulted Evan Dando into the hearts of a generation. With a wealth of unreleased demos, alternative versions and rarities – including covers of Victoria Williams, Buddy Holly and The Flying Burrito Brothers plus The Lemonhead’s take on the Cole Porter standard ‘Miss Otis Regrets’.
Rough Trade: “Lemonheads take a deserved spot in our compilations and reissue list once again (following the 2022 reissue of It’s A Shame About Ray). Come On Feel The Lemonheads saw Lemonheads be more explorative with instrumentation and genres, still guided by frontman Evan Dando’s slacker rock style. At the same time, this album really established the power pop sensibilities which the Lemonheads were known for, and this time with a country tinge. A band that was impossible to box in and effortlessly more eclectic than any other rockers of their time. The world of Evan Dando is open once more, fully explored on this deluxe edition vinyl, with a second disc of demos and acoustic versions, plus a host of one-offs from sessions and compilations.”
