Album artwork for Native Sons - Expanded by The Long Ryders

Expanded edition of The Long Ryders’ debut album from 1984. Featuring demos and live recordings from the era.

Released in October 1984 Native Sons was the debut album by American band the Long Ryders. Musically, the album fuses 1960s style garage rock and folk rock with country rock. Rolling Stone’s David Fricke described ‘Native Sons’ as an album“where Nashville, ’77 London and the mid-60s Sunset Strip converge in songs of pioneer aspiration and outlaw bonding.”

This new 3CD edition compiled in conjunction with founding member Sid Griffin contains the original album alongside a raft of demos and a live recording from 1985.

Described at the time by Melody Maker as a “Modern American Classic” this version brings together all the tracks that defined the start of Alt Country with a new package containing sleeve notes by Anthony DeCurtis and design by Phil Smee.
