The Smithereens

The Smithereens will celebrate the 25th anniversary of Green Thoughts next month with a new digital compilation that collects live versions of songs from that album, song demos and radio recordings, much of which was recorded around 1988 — although some of the material comes from the ’90s and there’s even one performance from 2004.

The band will release the 25-track Green Thoughts Live Compilation – 25th Anniversary 1988-2013 digitally on Sept. 15, and it’s now available for pre-order via iTunes.

Check out the full tracklist:
