At long last for the first time on CD comes the complete recorded output of the Individuals, one of the bands that pioneered the Hoboken N.J. music scene of the early ‘80s along with the dBs, Bongos, Feelies and Yo La Tengo. Their album Fields was named as one of the ten best albums of the year by Robert Palmer in the NY Times in 1982. Their single “Dancing With My Eighty Wives” was played often on WLIR on Long Island while “Walk By Your House” was a hit at WHFS in DC. Produced by Gene Holder of the dBs, Fields was the first album to be recorded at Mitch Easter’s Drive In Studio. The re-issue also includes their first EP Aquamarine as well as B-sides, extended single mixes and alternate takes. Extensive liner notes and rarely seen photos. 21 tracks in all!
"Fields yields it’s rewards with familiarity, springing its surprises like carefully timed bombs. Accepting this album into your home is, as one song title here puts it, a ‘Leap of Faith.’ Take it and be amazed.” - David Fricke/Rolling Stone
“This is the most impressive rock debut so far this year” - Robert Palmer/NY Times (1982)
