Especially Turns 30

There was a post on The Smithereens Facebook page today promoting the January release of ESP3CIALLY F0R You, a 30th Anniversary celebration of the album that gave the world  classic power pop songs like “Blood And Roses,” “Behind The Wall Of Sleep,” and “Strangers When We Meet.” The 47 tracks will be avaialble as a two-CD set or as a download, and will include demos, acoustic versions, and live performances.

It seems odd that The Smithereens wouldn’t have released this in time for the holiday, when it surely would have wound up on every power pop fan’s wishlist. In the meantime, fans will have to settle for having visions of this collection dance in their heads. They can also dream of a 2016 tour when The Smithereens will perform the original Especially For You in its entirety, plus a brand new album of originals tunes that’s coming out next Halloween.
