LP - 180g Clear Vinyl. 2023 Remaster housed in a Gatefold Sleeve.
Originally released in 1994, Mighty Joe Moon is the second release from Grant Lee Buffalo.
Appearing in the midst of the grunge movement, the trio took raw emotion and embraced it with just as much abrasion but toned it down into a more singer/ songwriter tone, thanks to Grant Lee Phillips' mix of glaring guitars and hushed vocals, that was unlike anything else at the time. With a nod to its predecessor, it is a more complex affair drawing in the listener on a more personal level. The fire burning in him, Phillips blazes through the themes of politics, love, the human spirit, and ends the album with a very chilling take on his own version of the old hymn Rock of Ages.
This newly remastered version is pressed on 180 gram coloured vinyl and is presented in a gatefold sleeve.
