Release Date:06/09/2017;Notes:Limited orange colored vinyl LP pressing, includes digital download. Following up 1987's Lolita Nation (whose reissue appeared on numerous year-end "best of " lists for 2016) would be no easy task for Game Theory. But, Scott Miller and company were certainly up for the task. Re-teaming with producer Mitch Easter (R. E. M. , Marshall Crenshaw, Velvet Crush), 2 Steps From The Middle Ages was released in 1988, and showed the band had no shortage of energy, experimentation, and excellent material. This reissue contains the original 13 songs supplemented with a whopping 11 bonus tracks-demos, live performances and covers- all previously unissued. Packaging includes rare and previously unseen photos from the band's photographer, Robert Toren, as well as essays from Easter, Ken Stringfellow (The Posies, Big Star), and Franklin Bruno (The Village Voice, Salon. Com). The band's drummer, Gil Ray, who was involved in all aspects with the Game Theory reissue series including this title, sadly passed away earlier this year. This reissue is lovingly dedicated to him.;Track List:1. Room for One More Honey;2. What the Whole World Wants;3. The Picture of Agreeability;4. Amelia Have You Lost;5.
