Green Day Re-Issues Past Albums

Published: 2006-11-13
Back in the early nineties a pop punk band called Green Day released a couple of albums on the indie record label Lookout! Now, the band's major label, Reprise, is re-issuing their first two records for release on December 19.

In 1990 Green Day released the album 39/Smooth on vinyl and in 1991 it would be combined with their previous Slappy and 1000 EPs for the CD 1039/Smoothed Out Slappy Hours. The next year the band released their sophomore disc Kerplunk! to moderate commercial success.

But the first time you probably heard of Green Day was with their 1994 major label debut Dookie that went on to sell millions of copies, win a Grammy and be named one of Rolling Stone's top 500 Greatest Albums of All time.

Though Lookout! re-issued their first two albums last year, Reprise is getting set to re-release 1039/Smoothed Out Slappy Hours and Kerplunk! just in time for Christmas. According to Reuters, the first album will include some special features:

"The extras include 20 minutes of live performances from 1990-91, frontman Billie Joe Armstrong's handwritten lyrics, show flyers and a 1991 radio interview."
