"Released for the first time ever. All tracks newly re-mastered from original tapes. Includes liner notes by Jack D. Fleischer interviewing Donnie and Joe, plus a download card. As teenagers in Fruitland, Washington in the late '70s, the farming Emerson brothers dreamed of being heard. The synthesizers were sometimes crude and the 8-track recorder had its limitations, but they aimed at nothing short of perfection in their home studio, on the farm. They titled their 1979 debut Dreamin' Wild, and, as multi-instrumentalist Donnie later admitted, 'Joe and I basically lived the dream of the title of the album.' But Dreamin' Wild does not tell the full story. In a relatively short span of time -- just two and half years -- the boys put close to 70 songs down on tape, all recorded at that magical home studio on the farm. A dozen of them are included here on Still Dreamin' Wild: The Lost Recordings 1979-81 and ready to be enjoyed for the first time ever. With a familiar blend of FM rock, power pop, and new wave, these 12 tracks cover the entirety of that fruitful period, stretching from the second song Donnie ever recorded ('Everybody Knows It') -- to tracks documenting his temporary move to L.A. in 1981."
