Deluxe Edition Of The Classic 1981 Album On Double LP!
Digitally Remastered!
Includes Bonus LP: Unreleased Live From Club 88 in 1981!
Limited-Time Digital Download Card With 10 Bonus Tracks!

Classic 1981 Gun Club debut album with bonus material and a 2nd LP of a never-before-released 1981 live recording.

This Deluxe Edition not only features a remastered version of the original classic album, but the 2LP set will include a download card for the digital versions of the 10 bonus tracks of alternate versions and the original 4 track demos. The 2nd LP will feature the never-before-released Live At Club 88 - March 6, 1981.

This classic 1981 debut album has been digitally remastered and comes in beautiful gatefold packaging, featuring extensive liner notes written by Gun Club drummer Terry Graham, as well as archival photos and other collectible images. The Gun Club recorded a few albums after Fire Of Love, but this debut album with the original band is the one that will always be considered their masterpiece!

The Gun Club's debut is the watermark for all post-punk roots music. This features the late Jeffrey Lee Pierce's swamped-out brand of roiling rock, swaggerific hell-bound blues, and gothic country. With Pierce's wailing high lonesome slide guitar twinned with Ward Dotson's spine-shaking riffs and the solid yet off-the-rails rhythm section of bassist Rob Ritter and drummer Terry Graham, the Gun Club burst out of L.A. in the early '80s with a bone to pick and a mountain to move - and they accomplished both on their debut album.
-Thom Jurek, AllMusic.com, 5/5 stars
