Title: Dreamin Wild
Format: LP
Label: Light In The Attic
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
Deluxe gatefold LP version with detailed liner notes, unseen photos, and a download card. "Pacific Northwest isolation mixed with wide-eyed ambition, a strong sense of family and the gift of music proved to be quite the combination for teenage brothers Donnie and Joe Emerson. Originally released in 1979, Dreamin Wild is the sonic vision of the talented Emerson boys, recorded in a family built home studio in rural Washington State. Situated in the unlikely blink-and-you-missed-it town of Fruitland and far removed from the late 1970s punk movement and the larger disco boom, Donnie and Joe tilled their own musical soil, channeling bedroom pop jams, raw funk, and yacht rock. Spurred on their high schools music program, Donnie and Joe received a further push from their lifelong farmer father, who drew up a contract stating that hed support his sons lofty ambitions with their very own recording studio as long as they focused on original material, sage advice for a man with zero experience in the music business. After taking out a second mortgage to help cover costs, Don Sr. also built his children a 300-capacity concert hall (dubbed Camp Jammin) replete with ticket booth, stage, and fully functioning snack bar. The only problem was that the projected audience never quite materialized, despite a prime time TV profile entitled "The Rock And Roll Farmers" from nearby Spokane, Washington. Even the Emerson brothers school pals were nonplussed at their privately pressed long player; hand distributed to local music stores, but not as far as Seattle, five hours away from their rural home. Somewhat rejected by the muted response, but never surrendering, both Donnie and Joe continued down a musical path and are still active as performers today. This rare slice of bedroom-funk gets the usual Light In The Attic treatment with newly remastered audio, detailed liner notes, and expanded original album art with loads of photos from the Emersons collection." - Light In The Attic.

Title: Still Dreamin Wild: The Lost Recordings 1979-81
Format: CD
Label: Light In The Attic
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Released for the first time ever. All tracks newly re-mastered from original tapes. Includes liner notes by Jack D. Fleischer interviewing Donnie and Joe, plus a download card. As teenagers in Fruitland, Washington in the late 70s, the farming Emerson brothers dreamed of being heard. The synthesizers were sometimes crude and the 8-track recorder had its limitations, but they aimed at nothing short of perfection in their home studio, on the farm. They titled their 1979 debut Dreamin Wild, and, as multi-instrumentalist Donnie later admitted, Joe and I basically lived the dream of the title of the album. ButDreamin Wild does not tell the full story. In a relatively short span of time -- just two and half years -- the boys put close to 70 songs down on tape, all recorded at that magical home studio on the farm. A dozen of them are included here on Still Dreamin Wild: The Lost Recordings 1979-81 and ready to be enjoyed for the first time ever. With a familiar blend of FM rock, power pop, and new wave, these 12 tracks cover the entirety of that fruitful period, stretching from the second song Donnie ever recorded (Everybody Knows It) -- to tracks documenting his temporary move to L.A. in 1981." - Light In The Attic.
