It's 2011 and the Giant Sand/ Howe Gelb series of rolling reissues, which will see the re-release of roughly 30 albums, goes on.

"Swerve" was originally released in 1990 and is the sixth reissue from Fire Records. This edition includes 4 bonus tracks in comparison to earlier versions.

"Featuring a variety of guest performers throughout, including GREEN ON RED's Chris Cacavas, Juliana Hatfield, Steve Wynn, and a fair hunk of Poi Dog Pondering, "Swerve" features the then duo of Gelb and Convertino on a fine slew of songs.

Recorded at a number of different locations, from Boston to Los Angeles, "Swerve" found Gelb reaching the ten-year point with his band in fantastic style.

(.) Total standouts include the wry country'n'swing of "Some Kind Of," "Trickle Down System," as good an anthemic Band tribute as any, and a version of "Every Grain of Sand" that's simply inspiring, one of the best Bob Dylan covers recorded." - AMG
