The history of the Screaming Trees goes back to 1985 when brothers Van Conner on bass and Gary Lee Conner on guitar teamed up singer Mark Lanegan in rural logging town Ellensburg, Washington State in 1985. After recording a handful of EPs and LPs for various US indie labels, including SST and Sub Pop, they signed to Sony imprint Epic Records for 1991's "Uncle Anaesthesia", co-produced with Soundgarden's Chris Cornell. This edition now features a number of non-album bonus tracks. 'Maybe (Van's New One)' was sung by bassist Van Conner, whilst 'E. S. K. ' is an outtake from the album sessions. Famed Seattle producer Jack Endino had previously worked with Screaming Trees on 1989's "Buzz Factory" for SST and the "Change Has Come" EP for Sub Pop before he came back on board to record an acoustic version of 'Winter Song', on which he guests on slide guitar. Prefiguring Americana, and to some degree a precursor to Mark Lanegan's solo album 'I'll Take Care Of You', their cover of Thomas A. Dorsey's '(There'll Be) Peace In the Valley (For Me)' was released a full two years before Johnny Cash's "American Recordings" comeback. Whilst their grunge-era peers hailed 70s punk and 70s metal as key influences, Screaming Trees' cover of Small Faces' 'Song of a Baker' ably demonstrates where the band's musical heart truly lay. Again produced by Jack Endino, their cover of Black Sabbath's 'Tomorrow's Dream', originally from the "Black Sabbath Vol 4" LP, rounds off this remastered 2CD collection in heavy style. As well as plenty of memorabilia and period artwork, the booklet of this 2CD edition features a 4,500 word essay based on new interviews with producer Jack Endino and Screaming Trees guitarist Gary Lee Conner, conducted for this set.
