Long a popular bootleg among folks who enjoy that kind of thing, these demo sessions for They’s fifth album John Henry mark a fascinating moment in the evolution of that project and their evolution as a band. Recorded in Williamsburg in what was then the newly-opened Excello Studio, the new lineup of They Might Be Giants pulled together an entire album's worth of material over a few days with stellar performances along with a wide variety of local musical luminaries.
Finally available in a fully remixed and mastered format, this set of songs rivals and, for some, eclipses the final finished product.
The LP is a deluxe hand-numbered 2-record package featuring a 12-inch 180g orange disc and a 7-inch bonus disc. John Henry Demos is available exclusively from Idlewild Recordings and will not be posted to streaming sites.
