Omnivore Recordings Re-Issues Soul Asylum's "While You Were Out" & "Clap Dip & Other Delights"

On January 18th, Omnivore Recordings will release the final two indie-releases from the Minneapolis rock band, Soul Asylum. Just prior to singing with A&M records in 1988, Soul Asylum released "While You Were Out" in late 1986 followed by the EP "Clam Dip & Other Delights." Both of these releases have been remastered for this brand new release on CD, which includes both original releases and seven bonus tracks on one disc.

You begin to notice a change in Soul Asylum's sound to a more modern, alternative rock approach, which would turn them into mega stars in 1992. Their "While You Were Out" album included the addictive, high energy feel of "No Man's Land," "Crashing Down" and "The Judge." The "Clam Dip & Other Delights" compilation still contains elements of the band's early days, like the reckless two-minute musical collage "Take It To The Root," along with their covers of Janis Joplin's "Move Over" and Foreigner's "Juke Box Hero."
