Yung Wu

Shore Leave


The Feelies percussionist, Dave Weckerman, takes center stage as the primary singer / songwriter for Yung Wu, a 1987 Feelies side project that includes all of the Good Earth era members plus John Baumgartner, keyboardist for The Trypes and Speed the Plough. Produced by Glenn Mercer and Bill Million and originally released on Coyote Records, it was largely overlooked at the time but is considered among Feelies enthusiasts to be an important part of their discography. Shore Leave is a minor classic of 80s jangle pop ripe for rediscovery. Key release among Feelies discography. Record Store Day LP Includes Limited edition Flexi Disc with 1980 Dave Weckerman single available in initial pressing only. Includes the original version of the title track along with a rare B side - Out of Baby's Reach, previously un-published photos and new liner notes by Dave.
