Weather Alert

Deep Dive: Rhett Miller and Old 97’s Re-issues

When a band thrives for 25 years, they amass a treasure trove of unreleased songs.  Ultra fans dig the outtakes and demos and previously unreleased live tracks.  Omnivore Records re-issued Too Far To Care in 2012.

The double-CD version and vinyl editions include special treats for fans.  They even issued a limited edition of translucent yellow vinyl (which I have!).
