Dinosaur Jr.‘s You’re Living All Over Me, the groundbreaking album from the masters of alt-guitar rock, turns 25 this fall. To celebrate, Merge will release Chocomel Daze (Live 1987), a rare live show (featuring the classic, original line-up of J, Lou, and Murph) recorded in 1987 at Doornroosje, Nijmegen, Netherlands on November 19. Limited edition and on 150-gram vinyl for the first time, Chocomel Daze (Live 1987) follows the release of their acclaimed new album I Bet on Sky.
When asked to share his memories of this particular show, J responded, “We were young on our first Euro tour. It was amazing to get hotels and food. We were treated a million times better than we were used to in the states. And only driving like 45 minutes a day to the next Dutch town. Good times.”
Pre-order Chocomel Daze (Live 1987) on limited-edition 150 gm LP now in the Merge store. Find You’re Living All Over Me, Dinosaur & Bug on CD and digital in the Merge store plus a specially priced bundle of all three.
