The Posies
Frosting On The Beater

Frosting On The Beater is arguably the best album by Seattle power pop stalwarts The Posies. It’s full of blissful guitars, joyful melodies and perfect harmonies. It was the band’s third album and was originally released in 1993. The album has an edgier, rockier sound than its two predecessors due to Don Fleming (Gumball, Velvet Monkeys, Dim Stars) being handed the production reins and he did a marvellous job. It contains some of the band’s most well-known songs such as Dream All Day, Flavor Of The Month and epic brooding closer, Coming Right Along, which has been used to great effect on several TV shows. Reissue LP on Omnivore. Mastered from original analog tapes and cut at 45 rpm.

The Posies
Amazing Disgrace

The final album that The Posies made for Geffen subsidiary DGC Records gets a re-release. Originally put out in 1996, Amazing Grace channelled the group’s major label frustration into an LP of top-notch post-grunge. The guitars on tracks ‘Daily Mutation’ and ‘Ontario’ sound huge. This reissue sees the original tracklist given a nice old remastering job. The CD edition comes with a heap of bonus numbers.

Big Star
9Complete Third: Vol. 2: Roughs To Mixes

Big Star Complete Third is the result of a decade-long search to find all the recordings from the 1974 sessions that would become Big Star’s Third album. The album has been released with differing track listings and different titles, such as Sister/Lovers, since its original release in 1978. As well as all of the music there are extensive liner notes from those involved and artists who have been influenced by the band. Vol. 2 Roughs To Mixes, one of three vinyl editions, contains the rough mixes by producer Jim Dickinson and Ardent Studios engineer John Fry, and a version of Velvet Underground’s After Hours sung by Lesa Aldridge.

The Posies
Solid States

Solid States is the first record from The Posies since the death of their drummer last year, and as you’d expect, a clear melancholy is audible here. It isn’t a morose record (indeed, it’s a lovely set of pop songs), but there is a depth of emotion even stronger than on their previous seven albums. Released by the Lojinx label.

The Posies
Failure

Here is a nice re-issue of The Posies’ 1988 debut. It was originally released on cassette back in 1988, later to appear on vinyl and then CD. this vinyl re-issue contains 8 bonus tracks on a doanload card. There's also a booklet including press clippings and essays from the band. A nice package for what was a landmark album, the duo performed a very straight down the line brand of catchy power pop with nods towards The Hollies, Marshall Crenshaw and Elvis Costello. Yet they had really, really long hair. Later on they became integral members of the reformed Big Star but this is where it all started.
