Released in 1998, Deserter’s Songs by Buffalo, New York’s Mercury Rev was an unexpected hit with critics and fans. Scoring 3 UK Top 40 singles and being praised for its cosmic/psychedelic vision, the band’s 4th album is widely regarded as one of the most influential works of the ‘90s. Jazz, folk, “sweeping orchestration,” and a bit of ‘60s rock define the 11-tracker that includes “Holes,” “Endlessly,” “Delta Sun Bottleneck Stomp, “Pick Up If You’re There,” “Tonite It Shows,” and “Opus 40,” and big ups to Modern Classics Recordings, a new off-shoot of Light In the Attic, for making this landmark LP its inaugural release. This is the first vinyl reissue since the 1998 original pressing. It has been remastered by co-producer David Fridmann and features a 4-page insert.
