2023 repress. "Flow on, silver juice, flow on... into the vein-streams of the nu generation via 90s classics like American Water and Starlite Walker and thence to the new century. They say time has no meaning, but we know otherwise. The pages of history condense eons and epochs into the stuff of mere chapters -- sometimes as little as paragraphs -- but how many lifetimes have we lived since the salad days and nightz of the original Silver Jews, when they walked the back-alleys of the earth just a scant couple decades ago... Since we're asking pseudo-rhetorical questions, who knows how many fans of the arena-rock Silver Jews (circa Tanglewood Numbers and Lookout Mountain, Lookout Sea) even know of the humble-yet-powerful origins of the band captured in the hiss-laden boombox mics of 1990-91. The songs lodged here are the tracks from the original 7" EP Dime Map of the Reefand the 12"EP The Arizona Record, documenting the telepathic counter-intuition between these singers who went into such specific different directions later in life."
