Classic edition of the Dinosaur Jr. book

Signature edition

Limited to 500 signed, numbered box sets

Each set contains two volumes and is signed by J, Lou and Murph. It also includes a limited run of new fine art prints unique to the set.

Each set is presented in a clamshell box.

The volumes

Volume 1 is a special, limited edition of the Classic edition book, each signed by J, Lou and Murph.

Volume 2 is a facsimile edition of tour diaries written in 1987 and 1988 by close friend and ‘worst roadie in the world’, Jon Fetler. He not only kept a brilliant, revealing and hugely entertaining diary while on tour with Dinosaur, but also took a lot of candid and unposed, behind the scenes photographs.

The diaries capture a crucial period in the band’s development, and had not been seen or read–even by the band–until the creation of this book.

The prints

The set contains fine art prints of original Dino artwork: one by Maura Jasper and one by J Mascis.

The prints are unique to the set, and printed on fine art paper using archival ink to guard against fading.

They are ready for mounting and display straight out of the box.

"Decades after being put in the vault and dribbled out a track at a time, David Bowie‘s unreleased The Gouster LP is finally out in one piece — as part of the new compilation box Who Can I Be Now? (1974-1976). As longtime fans are aware, The Gouster represents the musical seeds for what would eventually become Bowie’s R&B-influenced 1975 album Young Americans." http://snip.ly/1qzid

David Bowie's previously unreleased 'Gouster' LP streamed in September 2016.
