Screaming Trees

Last Words: The Final Recordings

Sunyata STLW001 LP/CD, released 2014 (U.S.)

After Dust, Screaming Trees mostly completed an album, but broke up before it was released. The demos from that album surfaced, though, and were shared liberally around the internet. They were high-quality recordings sound-wise - not what you would normally expect from demos. These were produced and almost finalized. In 2014, Sunyata Records (the imprint of Barrett Martin, the drummer for the last five years or so of Screaming Trees' run) released the demos as an album called Last Words: The Final Recordings. There were more tracks - ten on the album vs. seven on the demo (eight, really, but there were two versions of one track). One of the songs from the demo, "One Way Conversation", did not make the cut for the record, but the band released it seaprately, as a digital single, in 2000.

The record was pressed on red vinyl - 500 copies were made. The value of this one has been a bit odd: it spiked a little at the beginning, then dropped below retail for a couple of years, and now has shot upward.
