REISSUE: Green River - Rehab Doll and Dry As A Bone

Forget the muddy banks of the Wishkah, at the banks of Green River was where the grunge era was birthed.  The Seattle band Green River, active from 84-88, featured Mark Arm, later of Mudhoney, Stone Gossard and Jeff Ament of Pearl Jam and Bruce Fairweather and Alex Shumway.  They were the original pioneers of the gritty glam-rock and punk inspired alternative rock sound that became the “grunge” movement of the late 80’s and early 90’s; later ushered into the mainstream by Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden and Alice In Chains.
In celebration, Sub Pop recently reissued Green River’s long-out-of-print lone full-length, Rehab Doll, originally released in 1988 and their 1987 mini-LP, Dry As A Bone.  Each album is pressed onto colored vinyl and expanded to include previously unreleased material such as the demos from the Dry As A Bone sessions that were recorded onto Betamax and the Rehab Doll demos, recorded to 8-track at the legendary Jack Endino’s Reciprocal Recording. 
These new deluxe reissues provide a history lesson for new listeners and pays tribute to the progenitors of a scene.
