Feelies to re-release first two albums


Bar/None Records has announced the re-release of two classic albums by Haledon, New Jersey cult heroes the Feelies. The re-releases include their debut Crazy Rhythms, which Rolling Stone deemed one of the “100 Best Albums of the 1980s,” and the follow-up, The Good Earth, co-produced by Feelies’ Glenn Mercer and Bill Million with REM’s Peter Buck. The Good Earth was an early release on Coyote Records, the label founded and run by Steve Fallon, original owner of famed Hoboken indie roc mecca, Maxwell’s. This album introduced the line-up that continues to this day.

Both albums feature deluxe packaging (CD and vinyl LP) with liner notes by Jim Deragotis and Jim Sullivan respectively. Bonus material including demos, b-sides, EP tracks and some new live recordings from the re-united group to be included on digital download cards.

Crazy Rhythms and The Good Earth will be released to coincide with the Feelies’ September performance at the All Tomorrow’s Parties festival where they will perform the classic Crazy Rhythms in its entirety.

There will also be an acoustic performance at the Whitney Museum in New York City on June 26 as part of the Dan Graham Retrospective. In addition, there is a free show at the Pritzke Pavillion in Chicago’s Millennium Park on June 29, and a series of shows at Maxwells in Hoboken over the 4th of July weekend.
