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.

"Long Stem Rant" was originally released in 1989 and is the fifth reissue from Fire Records.

This edition includes 2 bonus tracks in comparison to earlier versions. "Long Stem Rant marks the beginning of the second phase of Howe Gelb and his Giant Sand.

Gelb and his drummer John Convertino had toured the U.S. and Europe as Giant Sand in early 1989, and the pair headed to a friend's barn in Rimrock, AZ, with producer/engineer Eric Westfall to set down new tracks.

The result, Long Stem Rant, sounded only marginally like its predecessors. (.) this record is certainly among Giant Sand's best." - All Music Guide
