Oxfordshire’s Ride, in October
1990, released their first full album Nowhere, coming on the heels of
three EPs and a growing reputation as a live attraction. Now, on Dec. 21 Rhino
Handmade will issue a two-disc set that includes the newly remastered U.S.
version of Nowhere, the ’91  EP Today
Forever
(Unfamiliar,” “Sennen,” “Beneath,” “Today” and an unreleased live
show. Adorned with a lenticular version of the album cover, the set’s 5″ x
5″ hardback book-style package includes a 40-page booklet with rare photos
and an essay by author Jim DeRogatis. 

 

The second disc in particular will
be of interest to fans; it was recorded April 10, 1991, at the Roxy in Los Angeles during the
group’s first American tour. The previously unreleased 12-song set draws mostly
from Nowhere, but does touch on Ride’s self-titled EP from 1990
(“Chelsea Girl” and “Drive Blind”) and the band’s follow-up EP later that year Play (“Perfect Time” and “Like A Daydream”). The live tracks are all newly mixed
with supervision by Alan Moulder.

The remastered version of Nowhere will also be released on 180-gram vinyl. This vinyl version mirrors the
original 8 song U.K.
release and marks the first time the album has ever been released on vinyl in
the States.
