Speed The Plough The Plough And The Stars on LP + CD + Download Card

The Plough & The Stars is a retrospective of New Jersey band Speed the Plough’s 30 year career. It includes a 17-track “Best Of” CD culled from the band’s first 4 long out-of-print East Side Digital albums, a split 12" LP with six new songs and five live tracks from a 1993 radio appearance, a 16-page booklet, and a download card with access to all that and much more, including an interactive version of the booklet with more songs and videos.

A total of 38 songs. Past and present members of the band are represented, including Feelies members Brenda Sauter (bass/vocals), Stanley Demeski (drums), and Bill Millio (guitar/production), along with guest players like banjo master Tony Trishka, Mountain Stage guitarist Michael Lipton and former Blood Oranges mandolinist Jimmy Ryan, among many others. 

Employing a wide variety of instruments – from woodwinds to brass to a string trio – Speed the Plough’s unique brand of chamber pop pre-dated the collective approach of many contemporary bands and sounds as fresh today as it did in 1984.

“...this New Jersey sextet creates music that invites, persuades and ultimately seduces...Speed the Plough doesn’t really sound like anybody else on the current pop scene. What a blessing.” - The Chicago Tribune

Details:
• The 17-track “best of” includes tracks from the East Side Digital releases Speed the Plough (1989), Wonder Wheel (1991), Mason’s Box (1993) and Marina (1995), the first two produced by Bill Million (The Feelies)
• Live tracks included are culled from the band’s appearances on NPR’s Mountain Stage, WFMU’s Live Music Faucet, the Knitting Factory and legendary Hoboken club Maxwell’s
