The quality control on these 4 LP sets is really poor. Ive had 3 copies of this...the issue is mainly with warping and dishing. With the last set, one of the records were shaped like a bowl! Giving up and waiting for the forthcoming reissues...

Sonic Youth take back the inspiration that they donated to American alternative rock, being fascinated by introspective, melancholic, acid and vaguely psychedelic atmospheres of grunge. The path is the one traced by Goo, with their attention focused on songs. But punk roots are further and further away, and the intertwining of guitar melodies is transformed in compact riffs with noisy explosions, functional in amplifying the alternation of anger and weary disillusion that is exploding in the music of the early 90s. Powerful and clear production of this album (Butch Vig and Andy Wallace collaborate with Sonic Youth) is the demonstration that Dirty isn’t, and doesn’t want to be, an independent album, yet an alternative way to play rock. The result, thanks to experimental background of the band, is perfectly achieved.

Which of the two US presses is considered the first. Geffen or DCG?

It doesnt get better than this edition!
The whole(great) album plus a lot of b-sides,rarities and stuff.
A crucial album for artistic reasons,and as individuals i'm guessing.They were leaving behind the whole no wave- post hardcore sound which made them who they were and going deeper into noise and experimentalism.Offcourse these changes would make themselves more obvious in the years to come.Cause DIRTY has a lot of feedback and noise.A product of the early 90's,maybe the last era that rock 'n roll still meant something.This box is crucial not only for the fetishism of it,but it also captures their art aesthetic,perfectly balanced between pop and underground,black and white and light.Now that SONIC YOUTH are history every(ok,allmost) album they made has a significant position in the history of counter-culture.

As far as I recall this release doesn't NECESSARILY have the poster... when the limited edition was released, record shops supplied it with EITHER a poster or a promo pack which consisted of a couple of promo photos of the band and a five page spiel by Thurston on multicoloured A4 paper. I opted for the promo pack, and it's still with the vinyl and canvas bag in my copy.

I just added the image of the cloth bag that came with my copy and its different to every other one i've seen, it has different colors.
Any ideas? Thank you.
