Screaming Trees


Something About Today

4-track Version: Epic 49 73539 12" / 49K 73539 CD, released 1990 (U.S.)
3-track Version: Epic EAS 3092 12" / ESK 3092 CD, released 1991 (U.S.)

And just like that, Screaming Trees was a major label band...this EP was initially released as a promotional item for the soon-to-be-released Uncle Anesthesia album. The EP had a nice picture sleeve and contained one song that was unavailable elsewhere, along with an alternate version of the title track. After the album came out, Epic released a 3-song promotional 12" version with a completely different set of tracks. This one had two more tracks that were otherwise never released. It did not have a picture sleeve; instead, it came in a standard black cutout sleeve with a label on it. The 3-song version is much harder to find than the 4-song version. Both versions were also released on CD.
