The Jayhawks – Music from the North Country: The Jayhawks Anthology [Deluxe Edition] (2009)

“Formed in Minneapolis in 1985 around the songwriting duo of Mark Olson and Gary Louris – along with bassist Marc Perlman – the Jayhawks brought together the best elements of country, folk, and rock. After four studio albums (including Hollywood Town Hall and Tomorrow The Green Grass) and numerous U.S. tours, Olson parted company in 1995, leaving Louris to carry on with a revolving lineup of bandmates, releasing the critically acclaimed albums Sound Of Lies, Smile and Rainy Day Music.

But that wasn’t to signal the end of Olson and Louris’ partnership. The duo reunited for three songs on Olson’s 2007 solo album The Salvation Blues, and they decided to continue working together under their own names. An album, Ready For The Flood, was released by New West this past January.

With Olson and Louris currently on the road performing both new songs and classic Jayhawks tracks, the time is right to release the Jayhawks’ first-ever compilation. Music From The North Country: The Jayhawks Anthology spans six Jayhawks albums, including their debut on Twin-Tone (Blue Earth) and the five albums cut for American Recordings. This double-CD-plus-DVD set gathers together b-sides, rarities, and previously unreleased material. The package was put together under the guidance of Gary Louris.”
