More Info:

Hallowed Ground is the follow up to The Violent Femmes legendary self-titled 1983 debut album. Similar to the first album, all of the songs were written by lead singer, Gordon Gano, while still in high school. This second album, however, pushed the band in new directions and made sure they did not rest on their laurels – featuring singles “Country Death Song” and the Lou Reed inspired “Sweet Misery Blues, “as well as a guest appearance from saxophonist John Zorn. Limited to 2000 copies, this 35th anniversary reissue has been cut from the original stereo tapes by Kevin Bartley at Capitol Mastering, and pressed on dark green vinyl at Independent Record Pressing. Each jacket is individually numbered.
