Besides being probably one of the best and most underestimated indie-rock bands from the United States, Seattle's The Walkabouts always delivered remarkable and outstanding cover versions. In 1993 they released "Satisfied Mind" the 1st cover album in the band’s history and truly an alternative country masterpiece. 20 years after the release MOJO Magazine elected it as one of the “best 5 Americana Albums of all times”! In 2001 the highly anticipated "Train Leaves At Eight" was released - the counterpart to "Satisfied Mind" - covering only European music from Norway to Greece.

"Satisfied Mind" was released as a single LP in 1993, maybe not the best decision for sound reasons, whereas "Train Leaves At Eight" never was released on vinyl. Both albums are now available for the first time ever remastered and on double vinyl.

As a bonus and a special gift to the fans this box includes a third double LP, the live album "Gone To Hell, Back By Eight". This album includes two recordings of two concerts from the time of creation of both "Satisfied Mind" and "Train Leaves At Eight". Remastered from the original tapes by Grammy nominee Hans-Jörg Maucksch (Pauler Acoustics Studio).

The Walkabouts - "Feel Like Going Home: Cover Albums" comes as a Deluxe box set with 3 double LPs (180 gram vinyl) plus 4 CDs. It will be released on December 2nd on Glitterhouse Records.
