Giant Sand’s debut album,Valley Of Rain was originally released in 1985, although it was recorded some two years earlier. The band had started to play the songs on tour again, which made them think re-recording the album would be a good idea. They got the original line-up back together, augmented by two newer members and some proper equipment.

Giant Sand overlord Howe Gelb presents a follow-up to his loungey-jazzy piano-centric Future Standards record with Lona Kelly. Further Standards combines a pair of brand new songs with live elaborations on that album’s material. It's a cool listen for cool cats, and offers enough variation on the original recordings to be essential listening. Further Standards is released by Fire
