Gin Blossoms "Dusted" (1989)

Wait a sec... Gin Blossoms had a first album?? Wait.. hold the phone.. Both "Hey Jealousy" and "Found Out About You" were originally from a 1989 album called Dusted? Since when??? Well... I suppose that's fun. It's always nice to hear familiar songs from a fresh perspective. These 2 versions sound way more like The Replacements than the (apparent) re-recordings found on New Miserable Experience, especially "Found Out About You," which up until now I always assumed was trying to combine R.E.M. with The Byrds. Turns out they were lovin' the Westerberg all along.

I trying to find time to finish the 90's Jams list. It's happening soon.
