Merge to Release Live Dinosaur Jr. LP from 1987

Jagjaguwar recently released Dinosaur Jr.’s third album since reforming in 2005, I Bet on Sky, and now the band’s old label, Merge, has announced that on Nov. 19 they’ll release Chocomel Daze (Live 1987), a recording of a rare 1987 live performance in the Netherlands.

Chocomel Daze (Live 1987) is being released to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the band’s classic album You’re Living All Over Me; the show in the Netherlands featured on the live LP was played in support of the iconic sophomore album.

“We were young on our first Euro tour,” J Mascis said. “It was amazing to get hotels and food. We were treated a million times better than we were used to in the states. And only driving like 45 minutes a day to the next Dutch town. Good times.”

Below, you can listen to the 1987 live version of the You’re Living All Over Me track “The Lung” that will be featured on Chocomel Daze.
