Formed in 1984, Dinosaur Jr carved a singular path through the latter half of the 1980s, issuing three highly influential albums in the process before finding a home with Sire Records, who issued "Green Mind" in 1991 as the alternative American rock scene the band had long been part of exploded globally.
Produced by a stripped down line-up of the group (in fact, J Mascis himself plays almost everything), the album and Sire's international reach took Dinosaur Jr's reputation to a new level, aided by the singles 'The Wagon' and 'Whatever's Cool With Me', a non-album EP of new material and live recordings, all of which are included here alongside a previously unreleased live recording capturing the group at the Hollywood Palladium in June 1991.
Critically lauded on release, "Green Mind" remains one of the band's strongest collections, and a firm fan favourite.
Collected together with related singles, B-sides and a complete live recording, and accompanied by in-depth sleevenotes from Mojo's Keith Cameron (based on recent and exclusive interviews with J Mascis), this 2CD edition provides a thorough snapshot of the band at a period when all eyes were on American guitar groups, many of whom owed their existence to Dinosaur Jr.

Deluxe Expanded Edition

  • Remastered and expanded edition of the classic 4th album and major label debut
  • Includes related singles, B-sides, and a previously unreleased live show
  • Liner notes by Mojo Magazines' Keith Cameron, based on exclusive new interviews with J Mascis

Review

...when Mascis pulls out all the stops - as he does on just about every song - the sound of overdubbed six-strings in overdrive will bowl over even confirmed louder-is-better zealots. Anyone who still believes in the power of the electric guitar to communicate in codes both wacky and wonderful should think twice before passing up Green Mind.. - 4/5
