Early demos and rarities from New Jersey emo heroes Saves The Day. Originally released on CD in 2004, but unavailable on vinyl until now. Play it from start to finish and you really get a sense of how much ground the band covered between their 1997 demo and the 2003 re-recording of “Jessie & My Whetstone.” Contains all 19 tracks from the CD version, including Stay What You Are-era B-side “Ups & Downs,” covers of The Clash (“Clash City Rockers”) and Descendents (“Cheer”), 5 songs from the band’s demo tape, every song from the acoustic I’m Sorry I’m Leaving EP (except for their cover of Modern English’s “I Melt With You”), rare 7-inch B-side “The Way His Collar Feels” and more. 180g black vinyl pressing released in celebration of 20 years of Vagrant Records, includes printed insert.
