Cherry Red Records are proud to announce the release of a deluxe 4-CD edition of this classic album, compiled and coordinated in conjunction with Mercury Rev’s twin lynchpins, Jonathan Donahue (vocals, guitar) and Sean ‘Grasshopper’ Mackowiak (guitar, keyboards, clarinet, tettix wave accumulator).

Joining the original ten-track album are a disc of B-sides, outtakes and demos (many of them previously unissued), a whole disc of hitherto unheard in-concert recordings from the accompanying tour and a French radio session (only available previously as a rare promotional CD). Highlights include the band’s unique interpretations of ‘Streets Of Laredo’ (Marty Robbins), ‘Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds’ (The Beatles) and ‘I Keep A Close Watch’ (John Cale) as well as newly heard compositions such as ‘Mascara Tears’ and ‘Silver And Gold’.

This expanded edition of ALL IS DREAM is presented as a plush, hardback book containing original album lyrics, lots of visuals and new sleeve-notes by Mojo’s Keith Cameron with fresh quotes from Jonathan and Grasshopper.
