The high watermark of their early years, "Up on the Sun" remains as most Meat Puppets fans' all-time favorite. Recorded in just three days back in early 1985, the album recieved universal praise. In the Los Angeles Herald Examiner, Mikal Gilmore described it as the "most articulate version yet of what is proving to be one of the more intriguing private musical languages in American pop." Richard Grabel effused thusly in New Musical Express: "Uplifting, delicate, inspiring, intricate, personal, important -- 'Up on the Sun' is all these things."
For this edition, the album has been expanded to include five additional tracks, including very different demo versions of "Hot Pink," "Up on the Sun," and "Maiden's Milk," plus the previously unreleased "Embodiment of Evil." Also included is the original extended instrumental of "Hot Pink."
As an added bonus, the albums in this series include an "Enhanced CD" partition for play on home computers. "Up on the Sun" offers a lucky find, a complete live video of the Meat Puppets performing "Swimming Ground" at Hollywood's Music Machine club in January of 1986. Originally produced for French television by I/O Productions, this video offers a rare glimpse of the band at the peak of their early career.
This album is the essence of the Meat Puppets. Hard to believe this followed the classic MP II. They just seemed to go for a way more relaxed vibe and nailed it. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Ray K
