The Long Ryders were formed by several American musicians influenced by Gram Parsons and the Byrds, with country and punk rock influences.
Final Wild Songs (4CD)
The band featured Sid Griffin on guitar, autoharp, and bugle, Stephen McCarthy, guitar, steel guitar, mandolin, and banjo, Des Brewer, as bassist, (later replaced by Tom Stevens) and Greg Sowders, playing drums and percussion. With a sound reminiscent of Gram Parsons, Buffalo Springfield and The Flying Burrito Brothers, but with a harder edge, they anticipated the alternative country music of the 1990s by a decade.
This 4-CD career overview has been compiled with both Sid Griffin and Tom Stevens from original tapes (where they exist) – Sid has contributed a track by track breakdown for the set. The set features all the original albums as well as demos, singles and rare live recordings.
Re-mastered by Andy Pearce the recordings and in Sid’s opinion have never sounded so good. A new booklet designed by Phil Smee contains many rare photos and memorabilia. The band is promising to do some selected UK dates to promote the record which will get a full service to press and radio.
