mlb-oeaiiMother Love Bone – On Earth As It Is: The Complete Works

Release: November 4, 2016

Thanks to The Second Disc for a heads-up on this beautiful, newly remastered boxed set of Mother Love Bone. It looks pretty damn sweet. 23 unreleased tracks (including demoes and vinyl-only tracks), and the first-ever DVD release of their old VHS.

Follow that link for Second Disc (above) to get details on the LP versions with randomly tipped-in autographs and such.

If you need some Mother Love Bone in your life, this would be a great place to get a whole bunch of it!

Mother Love Bone – This Is Shangri La

The Taranna Was Hot Series: Part 1/25

Alright, you knew I wasn’t gonna leave you hanging for long, as regards my Taranna scores yesterday…

This one’s an easy post, as it only contains one song, but it does have some cool things about it.

Of course, we all know who Mother Love Bone was, and this find is a bit timely as Temple Of The Dog is back in the mix these days, with a tour and all.

This is a 1990 promo single from Polydor (CDP348), for the single from their release, Apple. My copy here is in great shape, and has the 6-panel mini poster intact. The CD media looks brand new.

And the tune itself is, of course, a classic for everyone who was into this scene at the time. Bouncy, bluesy, rockin’, and tight as hell. It’s so great to hear Andrew’s voice any time, and the band is smokin’. This was as no-brainer track as a single, for sure.

Looking it up on Discogs, prices (in CAD) go from $12 – $65 for a copy. I paid $2.99 at Sonic Boom. So yes, I paid $3 for one song, but this is a collectible, and I’m happy that it’s here!
