To mark the 25th anniversary of the original release, Edsel present this special Digipak reissue of Bob Mould’s classic album ‘Black Sheets Of Rain’ – long unavailable on CD. The great alternative rock band Hüsker Dü split up in 1987, and in 1989 Bob Mould’s first solo album appeared to great acclaim. ‘Workbook’ is also now released by Demon (EDSK 7096). ‘Black Sheets Of Rain’, Bob Mould’s second solo set followed a year later, once again completely written and produced by Mould himself. Bass and drums are provided by Tony Maimone and Anton Fier, both previously of Pere Ubu. Heavier, denser and more bleak than ‘Workbook’, the album is perhaps more similar to the Hüsker Dü.
