Press release from Rhino:

WARREN ZEVON REISSUED WITH UNRELEASED MUSIC

Rhino’s Double-Disc Collectors Edition of the Grammy-Winning
Singer-Songwriters Major-Label Debut Includes a Bonus Disc with
Previously Unissued Versions of Each Album Track and More

Available November 11 from Rhino Records

LOS ANGELES — Warren Zevon moved to Spain in the summer of 1975,
dropping out of the music business after nearly a decade. During his
self-imposed exile, he performed regularly at the Dubliner, a colorful
bar owned by a former mercenary who helped Zevon pen the classic “Roland
The Headless Thompson Gunner.” Zevon’s luck changed when his friend
Jackson Browne contacted him about a recording deal. He signed with
Asylum Records in 1975 and began recording his major-label debut, WARREN
ZEVON. Today, many consider his self-titled album a high water mark not
only for Zevon, but for the decade as well. Rhino will reissue a
Collector’s Edition of WARREN ZEVON that includes the original album
remastered, along with a bonus disc filled entirely with unreleased
demos and alternate versions of album tracks. The two-CD set will be
available November 11 from all retail outlets, including www.rhino.com,
for a suggested list price of $24.98 (CD) and $13.99 (digital).

Jackson Browne produced the album and also enlisted some of the West
Coast’s biggest names to help out, including members of the Eagles,
Fleetwood Mac, David Lindley and J.D. Souther. Providing Zevon with an
outlet for his pent-up creativity, he unleashed a barrage of sharply
observed songs that pulse with dark wit and sophisticated melodies. Many
of his best-known tracks are included here, such as “Hasten Down The
Wind,” “Poor Poor Pitiful Me,” “Carmelita” and “Mohammed’s Radio” — all
of which were later covered by Linda Ronstadt. The album also contains
“I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead,” “Frank And Jesse James” and “Desperados
Under The Eaves,” a song Zevon wrote about staying at the Hollywood
Hawaiian Motel with no way to pay his bill.

The bonus disc uncovers 15 unreleased tracks, including different
versions of every song on the album. Several demos capture Zevon alone
at the piano, including a poignant take on “Frank And Jesse James,” a
song he wrote while touring with The Everly Brothers. A demo Zevon
recorded for “Hasten Down The Wind” features a full band. In addition,
the collection presents alternate versions of “Poor Poor Pitiful Me” and
“Carmelita” along with different takes from the sessions for “Join Me In
L.A.” and “Desperados Under The Eaves.” The live bonus track of “Mama
Couldn’t Be Persuaded” was recorded in October 1976 during an appearance
on the Cleveland radio station WMMS.
