Snake Charmer: 35 Years Later.
« on: December 31, 2018, 10:50:44 AM »
35 years ago The Edge participated on the "Snake Charmer" EP with Jah Wobble and others.  We finally had a chance to sit down and pick apart that EP and the related releases for an article on the album:

Fun fact!! The EP was just issued on CD for the first time ever in late October. The CD issue uses the UK version of the EP.  We've also updated the discography entries for the various songs found on "Snake Charmer". It is still fresh in my mind so if anyone has any questions now would be a good time :)

Whenever I check back in with this, it's clear in my mind for five minutes, then disappears back into the ether. Great release & the new CD is a welcome addition.

Haha. Well hopefully that article clears it up and keeps it clear for years to come.  Even noted what versions I was listening to and accessing so if there are questions later in life we know that those particular versions are clear.  I will admit it lead me to buying one additional version that I'm waiting to peel back the mystery of...but I expect that the release was identical everywhere but the USA...
