Details

In 1997 Grinspoon released their debut album GUIDE TO BETTER LIVING.

 

Going on to boast double-platinum sales of more than 140,000 copies on the back of five singles; ‘Pedestrian’, ‘DC×3’, ‘Repeat’, ‘Just Ace’ and ‘Don't Go Away’ – the album spent 36 weeks in the ARIA Top 50.

 

20 years later – with the album chalking up a double decade of acclaim – the band are emerging from hiatus to celebrate their debut album with the ‘Guide To Better Living’ tour.

 

To correspond with the tour comes the 20th Anniversary Edition of Guide To Better Living, expanding the original 16-track album to a mammoth 49 track feast of rarities, live tracks and unreleased recordings.

 

The physical 2CD edition is packaged in a deluxe longbox slipcase, alongside a 36 page book featuring unseen images, scans of memorabilia, full lyrics and essays from each of the band members, producer Phil McKellar and A&R executive at the time Peter Billing. The original 16 track album is augmented with the Live At CBGB’s recording – an incendiary 10-track live recording of the band taken from the fabled CBGB’s venue in New York. The recording was found in a scour of the vaults late in 2016.

 

The set also includes rare B-Sides from the singles/EP’s of the time and a wholly unreleased track ‘Green Grass Meadow’ recorded at the time of Guide To Better Living – but unheard until now! The set is finished off with a previously unreleased 13 track performance from the Falls Festival of 1997. 49 tracks in all!
