Original French release. "Days Of Wine And Roses" only written on spine, not on front or back of album, and not on record labels except as last song on LP.

Sometimes, you just have to do what you have to do and hope that it comes out okay. I'd been after a copy of this for a long time and while I didn't want to purchase this particular edition based on the reputation of 4 Men With Beards, I pulled the trigger anyway. And honestly, I'm glad I did.

I haven't been able to compare any other pressings to the 4 Men With Beards copy beyond listening to some tracks from the bands Greatest Hits album on CD, so while it is certainly possible that a pressing from another company will sound better, I can't find any fault with this particular release. The music sounds good, the highs and lows are there, I did hear a couple of pops but not during the music, and I may just need to give it a better cleaning.

4 Men With Beards doesn't have a great reputation among any of the music message boards I frequent, however most of the people who post about them seem to indicate that earlier stuff they released was better than later material. This could be the case here. I took a chance because in 2017 I found a mint 4 Men With Beards copy for sale here for much less than a mint original or even a later repress (which at this point was more than triple what I paid), and for me at least, it paid off. If I find a mint original at a "it's a steal" price, I may pick it up to compare, but if that never happens I won't be sweating it.

I have a slightly different version, which seems identically in every way, other than the front of the rear inlay does not have the cover of the EP as per this version, but is rather plain silver with the words 'Digitally Remastered' running down the left-hand side.

The label on my copy does not look like the one on the Discogs photo.

I have no idea if my copy is from Belgium...no indications on the label on where it's made... Rough Trade, ROUGH 53.

At the core of every musical, at the center of what becomes mainstream, is the element of inspiration, of genius and vision ... such was the talent of The Dream Syndicate, fronted by Steve Wynn [on vocals and guitar], and Karl Precoda [on guitar] Dennis Duck [on drums] and Kendra Smith [vocals and bass] ... though through changes, for a variety of personal reasons, the group eventually formed with Steve Wynn, Dennis Duck, and new members Paul Cutler [on guitar] and Mark Walton [on bass].

The core of their genius was first alluded to with the choice of the band’s name “The Dream Syndicate,” which was a reference to an early experimental New York band know as Theater Of Eternal Music, which included John Cale . So, with these lofty visions and aspirations, they set out to created a sound based on a solid structure rooted in the advent garde, which relied on extended feedback and floating improvisations ... all of which could be traced back to the footprints left by Quicksilver Messenger Service, Television and picked up right were The Velvet Underground had left off. But again, the public is strange sometimes, beyond all reason, and missed yet another chance to be in on the ground floor of this amazing talent, letting The Dream Syndicate slip through their fingers, just as they had done with The Velvet Underground more then fifteen years before. Make no mistake about it, this again was the future of rock n’ roll ... we are now left with a body of music to be pondered over, and fans wondering why this group had been so over looked. The “ponder” part will take years and will bring pleasure to all who have the insight to dive into these waters ... the “Why was this group so over looked?” is just too silly a question to ask, because the same people who ask it, are the same people who dismissed The Dream Syndicated from the beginning.

As with The Velvet Underground, The Dream Syndicate relied on fuzz, and feedback, along with driving melodies and rhythms that carry one so far away there is no hope of ever returning. The music so soaked and steeped in the personal experiences of the lives of its creators, who paint in more detail then imaginable ... yet overlaying all of this, is the sense of believability, simply because something this amazing must simply be true.

“Halloween” will haunt you for the rest of your life, “The Days Of Wine And Roses” is relentless, to the point of challenging even Neil Young, and “When You Smile” is so bitter sweet you will feel your heart beating in your chest ... going on all night regarding each song will do no good ... cueing up this album and being swept away will say it all.

The lyrics are sincere and powerful. The drums kick in right where they should, a bit to the left, then tone down to allow the imaginative guitar work to step back in. This album could very well be just one piece of music, it's that good. It's a dark record with tinges of X, and The Swans' “Burning World” Whenever I play this record I ask myself why it's been so long since I played it, then I realize it was only yesterday.

Don’t expect to come back from this the as same person. Period.

Avoid this pressing (and anything on this CD mastered to vinyl reissue label), an original is easily found for the same price.
