Shopping For Records #56: Dinosaur Jr. is Reissued Vinyl(ly)...

Not sure what words of wisdom I can apply to such self-explanatory news, but just know that Dinosaur Jr.’s first three albums are being reissued by Jagjaguwar on vinyl. Keep the music pure for the purists, right?

I guess I can keep my Bug cassette in its wrapping after all.

Dinosaur Jr.'s First Three Albums Back on Vinyl This October 

Dinosaur Jr. at the Anti-Club, Hollywood, CA, 1987 by Joseph Henderson

By now, you know the story: J Mascis, Lou Barlow, & Patrick “Murph” Murphy, meet in Amherst, MA. J, Lou & Murph start a band. Said band goes on to rip through the musical landscape and prove to be the genesis of the “alternative rock” archetype.

Over the last 25+ years, Dinosaur Jr. have influenced a countless number of bands, both peers and protégés, by wailing their classic union of melodic bass, seething drums, virtuosic guitar shredding and listless vocal delivery through the iconic Marshall stacks.


Jagjaguwar is honored to reissue the band's first three albums on vinyl,
Dinosaur, You’re Living All Over Me and Bug, on October 4th, 2011. Originally released on the venerable Homestead and SST labels in the 1980’s, the reissues stay true to form and include the cardinal track lists.

Dinosaur Jr. recently completed a sold-out tour playing
Bug in its entirety, and the acclaimed 33 1/3 book series by Continuum released Nick Attfield's book about You're Living All Over Me this summer.
