Steve Wynn went from the lower reaches of the Los Angeles underground music scene to major critical acclaim practically overnight with the release of the Dream Syndicate's debut album, The Days of Wine and Roses, in 1982.

Being part of the Paisley Underground (the neo-'60s Southern California scene that included next to Dream Syndicate also The Bangles, Green on Red, Rain Parade) proved to be the first act in a long and fascinating career in which Wynn matured into one of the canniest songwriters in rock, penning smart, flinty lyrics that told perceptive tales of human behavior both noble and otherwise, married to tough, engaging melodies full of muscular guitar work.

Wynn launched his solo career with 1990's Kerosene Man and 1991's Dazzling Display, both of which found him working with an impressive variety of collaborators.

From the '90s onward, Wynn would follow his muse through a number of creative paths, and while his early work often revealed the influence of Lou Reed and Bob Dylan, his more mature material (as evidenced by 2001's Here Come the Miracles and 2010's Northern Aggression) showed he had grown into an unsung heir to their place in rock songwriting.

Inspired by the way artists in the 60s recording a single one evening to be broadcast the next day, Steve records these songs.

He tries to preserve spontaneity and thus emits in 2001 a new single every month online.

Originally available on CD, these 12 songs have been compiled for this release, never before been available on vinyl, but now! For fans of Dream Syndicate, Green On Red, Rain Parade Sealed vinyl, with padded inner and inner with info on the songs, 500 black units on 140g pressed at Optimal.
