Dinosaur Jr to reissue ‘Dinosaur,’ ‘You’re Living All Over Me,’ ‘Bug’ on vinyl

Following this summer’s cassette-only reissue of Bug, the reunited Dinosaur Jr this fall will re-release that 1988 album along with the band’s first two records — 1985’s Dinosaur and 1987’s You’re Living All Over Me — on vinyl this fall, the trio’s current label, Jagjaguwar Records, announced this week.

Originally released on the Homestead and SST labels and reissued on CD by Merge Records in 2005, the new vinyl pressings of the first three Dinosaur Jr albums will arrive Oct. 4. But expect a no-frills reissue: The albums are not being pressed on 180-gram audiophile vinyl, as increasingly is the norm these days, and there are no bonus tracks.

Dinosaur’s first three albums feature the band’s original lineup of J Mascis, Lou Barlow and Murph. Following Bug, Barlow left to focus on Sebadoh, while Murph stayed in the band through 1993’s Where You Been. The original trio reunited in 2005 and has since released two albums.

    these 3 titles were re-issued on vinyl in 2005, on Baked Goods label; I have all 3 and last time I checked, these were pretty easy to find on a record fair or something. So why these new re-issues???, and why the fuzz….
