Featuring Remastered Editions of Shine EP and Apple LP; 23 B-sides & Alt Versions; and Love Bone Earth Affair on DVD
Founded by future Pearl Jam and former Green River members Stone Gossard (guitar) and Jeff Ament (bass) and flamboyant singer Andrew Wood, the Seattle-based punk/glam band Mother Love Bone was only active for a few promising years before the premature death of Wood following their debut 1989 EP Shine and just before the release of the group's debut full-length Apple. Monkeywrench Records is pleased to release Mother Love Bone: On Earth As It Is, a 3CD/DVD-set that includes both their lone studio works Shine and Apple remastered plus B-sides, demos, and some unreleased songs. The CD edition also features the Love Bone Earth Affair on DVD.
Apple and Shine are gathered together on one disc - both remastered for the first time by Ed Brooks at RFI Mastering while an additional 23 recordings are featured on two more discs. The bonus material comprises rare B-sides, demos, alternative versions, and unreleased songs including Andrew Wood's demo recording of "Chloe Dancer" and a live version of "Stardog Champion" featuring Chris Cornell and Pearl Jam. Love Bone Earth Affair - available for the first time on DVD - includes bonus features of rare unseen live Mother Love Bone performances and more. The 3CD/DVD set comes complete with a 24 page booklet.
