The Feelies Time For A Witness on LP + Download w/ Bonus Tracks
Formed in Haledon, NJ in 1976, The Feelies have released five albums to date including their critically acclaimed and influential 1990 debut Crazy Rhythms. The twin-guitar attack of songwriters and founders Glenn Mercer and Bill Million is the infectious sound of the group. Paired with driving drums and percussion, it has left an indelible mark on the landscape of rock and roll.
With their fourth album, On Time For A Witness (1991) The Feelies continued to hone their sound, getting a bit heavier and anticipating the grunge-era that Nirvana heralded in soon after this release. A cover of the Stooges "Real Cool Time" and their own excellent alt-radio hit "Doin' It Again" are just a few of the highlights.
The Feelies' third and fourth albums Only Life (1988) and Time for a Witness (1991) are being reissued on vinyl by Bar/None Records after being unavailable on the format for 25 years. Both albums feature a bonus download card with new acoustic recordings and live takes from their final shows at Maxwells in Hoboken. Liner notes for this re-issue by Michael Azerrad (This Band Could Be Your Life) tell the tale that led to a 15 year hiatus for the band.
