More Info:

Celebrating 25 years since the release of Giant Sand's legendary 'Chore Of Enchantment', the panoramic masterpiece that was the turning point for the classic line-up featuring seasoned songwriter Howe Gelb and latter-day Calexico members Joey Burns and John Convertino from 1999. Filled with mind-bending one-liners, customary offbeat instrumentation, echo fields and hazy horizons; 'The Chore Of Enchantment' is a songbook of Howe Gelb's greatest songs. The high level production by the legendary Jim Dickinson, PJ Harvey foil John Parish and acclaimed singer/songwriter/producer Kevin Salem, a tour-de-force of Gelb's unique oeuvre. Highlighting their eclectic and esoteric career, this reissue celebrates the band's magnificent, long and winding career. This 2xLP deluxe reissue features restored artwork and newly penned liner notes from MOJO's Dave Henderson.
