Mad Season, ‘River of Deceit': Stirring Live Performance Filmed in 1994 (PREMIERE)

Legacy Recordings

Earlier this week, the minds at Legacy Recordings issued an expanded Deluxe Edition of Above, the sole 1995 album from Seattle-based supergroup Mad Season. The group featured vocalist Layne Staley (Alice in Chains), guitarist Mike McCready (Pearl Jam), drummer/percussionist Barrett Martin (Screaming Trees) and bassist John Baker Saunders (The Walkabouts, Lamont Cranston Band).

The Deluxe Edition of Above is a three-disc set comprised of two CDs and one DVD. It includes the original studio album and a ton of extra goodies including previously unreleased tracks from the band’s unfinished second album with new lyrics and vocals by Mark Lanegan (Screaming Trees), full audio plus the first official DVD release of Mad Season’s last show ever performed – Live At the Moore, an unreleased full concert video of the band’s New Year’s Eve performance from now-defunct Seattle club RKCNDY, a full-color collector’s booklet and more (full details below).

A limited edition, double-LP, 12-inch version of Above will arrive in stores on April 20 as part of Record Store Day 2013.

Noisecreep got its hands on a stirring version of “River of Deceit” taken from the RKCNDY performance and you can check it out below.
