The Long Ryders were formed in Los Angeles in 1982 by young American musicians influenced by Gram Parsons and the Byrds, with country and punk rock influences wedded together to create the Alt-country of today. Stephen McCarthy went on to the Jayhawks while Sid Griffin moved to London and became a writer and a broadcaster.

Listen to the The Long Ryders’ acoustic rendering of Black Girl (from May-June 1984) included on Disc One of this four-disc set, and it’s hard not to hear Kurt Cobain’s unplugged version of the same song, though he called it Where Did You Sleep Last Night?. They weren’t thanked for it at the time, as is clear from Encore From Hell which closes Disc Two. It’s not a song as such. The Ryders weren’t without their supporters at the time, of course. That scene was real, and got much press attention, especially in the UK and Europe, though it never went overground. The box contains all three of the albums The Long Ryders released during their lifespan, and their debut EP, 10/5/60, which is still a career highpoint.
In 1987, the Long Ryders dropped their third album, Two-Fisted Tales, produced by Ed Stasium. The LP's first single, a cover of NRBQ's "I Want You Bad," earned plenty of radio play, and U2 invited the band to open a string of American dates on their tour in support of The Joshua Tree. However, the Long Ryders' relentless touring schedule was wearing away at the group, and by the end of 1987, both Tom Stevens and Stephen McCarthy had left the band to pursue other interests. Larry Chatman was part of the Long Ryders' road crew in the '80s and had remained close with the former members of the band. In the 2010s, Chatman was working as a personal assistant to West Coast rap icon Dr. Dre, and he was able to arrange for the Ryders to use Dre's state-of-the-art recording studio, Record One, for a week on the house.
