Green Day were kids from working-class backgrounds who came of age in the underground punk scene in Berkeley. Though they had already released two albums (1039/Smoothed Out Slappy Hours and Kerplunk), the band truly announced its arrival with 1994's Dookie, a dynamic blast of exuberant punk-pop that sold 15 million copies and earned the band its first Grammy® Award for Best Alternative ...

Editorial Reviews

Green Day's first album "39/Smooth" is back in a brand new deluxe edition. Originally released in 1990 and selling over 900,000 copies to date, this album was the world's first glimpse of Green Day's unique blend of punk rock energy, melodic riffs and self depreciating charm. Green Day is the most popular punk band in the world today with millions of fans all over the world. Every track has been re-mastered from the original tapes by Bernie Grundman in 2003. This historic album sounds better than ever, and is available at a new low price. More for Less, how can that be wrong? Special Features * Enhanced CD! * Over 20 minutes of live video performances from 1990-1991 * Vintage photos, handwritten lyrics by Billie Joe and flyer art * Live radio performance and interview from 1991 * Included are the band's first two 7 inch EPs "1000 Hours" from 1989, "Slappy" from 1990 plus a compilation track from 1991 * The CD package has been redesigned by the original artist into a deluxe embossed digipack with a twelve page booklet including more art and photos from the original vinyl releases.

4.0 out of 5 stars Green Day in the raw (sorta) January 2, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Even in their early days, Green Day didn't have a particularly aggressive or uncommercial sound- they were their some jumpy, poppy selves, a virtual assembly line of pop-punk crunchiness, with crunch three-chord melodies and nasal vocals. Back then, Billie Joe and company still wrote songs about girls and laziness and boredom, with shades of humor and angst shimmering through the mix. The only thing that was particularly different (aside from the somewhat muddy sound quality) was that Tre Cool had yet to become the band's drummer- his predecessor, a fellow by the name of John Kiffmeyer, isn't bad by any means. He doesn't have Cool's explosive approach, but he knows how to keep a rhythm just fine, and he's got more than enough punky energy.

This disc offers plenty of proof of that. It's a compilation that includes their entire first album (39/Smooth, which makes up the first 10 tracks), as well as two E.P.s (1000 Hours and Slappy, which, respectively, make up tracks 15-18 and 11-14 of this record), and the compilation track "I Want To Be Alone." All of it was released on Lookout! records, and all in all it comprises about half of their pre-major label output. It's all fine stuff for a fan of the band. If you hate Green Day based on records like Dookie and Insomniac, this probably won't change your mind very much. If you've never listened to them before, this isn't really the best place to start: the aforementioned two records are a better bet. Or you could go for the wonderful International Superhits compilation.

As far as highlights go, I really like the rollicking "Don't Leave Me," as well as the exuberant "Going To Pasalacqua." There's also a wonderfully emotional four chord romp called "Only Of You," and a deathlessly catchy song by the name of "1000 Hours.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid October 29, 2005
By Hermie
Format:Audio CD
The very first glimpse of Green rocks. This is solid punk...loud, fast, and awesome. Anyone who remotely likes punk should dig this. The price is great and well worth it, because it comes with all of that cool extra stuff. If you enjoyed this album, then try Kerplunk also, because it has the same great punk sound. I like Insomniac a lot, but after hearing this I had to consider, because 1039/Smoothed Out Slappy Hours rocks too.

I don't really have any favorites on here because I like them all, but At the Library, I was There, and Green Day are some good ones. The song Green Day will tell you all you need to know about how they came up with the band's name...... So if you've found yourself becoming more and more disappointed with Green Day as the years go on, I suggest that you look backward, not forward. So, have you bought it yet? If not, then stop reading this and do yourself a favor by buying it!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Guess you had to be there! July 18, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I suppose it's strange for some people who were first introduced to Green Day with 'Dookie' and thereafter to come back in time to listen to this album. Not only that, but I am willing to bet that many of those people are not accustomed to listening to underground bands. This is what most bands sound like when they are not on major labels, folks... and if you're not used to that, then you probably aren't even aware of most of the best that punk music has to offer. And if that's the case, then you have no basis for comparison and shouldn't be reviewing this album, because you have zero credibility.
I hope that helps to explain some of the bad reviews this album has received... because as a fan of Green Day since around 1990 when I first saw them live, I've watched them progress. I introduced them to most of my friends before the radio did. And I've seen them open shows for many many bands that never made it as big as them, or anywhere for that matter. So take it from me, this is their best work.
THe album is similar to others they've made in terms of the songwriting, etc. Some are good, some are just OK, some are out-of-this-world fantastic. This album has the largest concentration of the latter category.
"At The Library" is a total classic. The lyrics are simple and innocent, but that is the case for many classic songs. The music behind it all is the catchiest I've heard... and it has a certain something about it that makes me reminisce. Reminds me a little of the Cure.
"Don't Leave Me" is one of the better songs, and is extremely typical of their early style of music.
"Disappearing Boy" used to be a crowd favorite. Now of course it's "Longview" or something else, whatever that graduation song is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible September 7, 2005
Format:Audio CD
1,039/Smoothed Out Slappy Hours (damn, that's a mouthful) is an awesome album. Especially for being their first album (compiled of old EPs) it's catchy, entertaining and consistent (except for the song Knowledge). You won't be dissapointed, and it will hold your attention from "At the Library" on down (by the way, it's my favorite song).

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing album February 13, 2007
By whats86
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It's rare that a young band's first album is extremely good but with Green Day, anything is possible. I wasn't expecting much from this album when I was first getting into Green Day's music, but it completely blew me away. I definitely recommend this album to anyone and if you're a Green Day fan this is a must-have.
