Label: Real Gone Music
Format: LP Vinyl
Blessed with a formidable front woman in Brett Anderson, a guitar heroine in Allison Robertson, and a pummeling rhythm section in bassist Maya Ford and drummer Torry Castellano, The Donnas were one of the greatest punk bands of the '90s, male or female, bringing a uniquely hedonistic yet feminist viewpoint to the genre. Now, at last, with the full cooperation of the band, Real Gone Music is releasing the first-ever vinyl retrospective of their early days recording for (mostly) the Lookout! label featuring 14 non-LP sides (Real Gone will subsequently be releasing the group's four Lookout! albums). Almost all of these songs, from their first single "High School Yum Yum," to their REO cover "Keep On Loving You," haven't been on vinyl since their original release if at all; rare photos and memorabilia plus track-by-track commentary and liner notes (on the enclosed insert) by all four band members make Early Singles 1995-1999 truly indispensable for Donnas fans. Remastered for LP by Mike Milchner of Sonic Vision, and pressed on metallic gold vinyl (cuz these trax should have been gold records!)...limited to 2000 copies, exclusive for Record Store Day!
