Grunge greats Screaming Trees are releasing Live at Egg Studios for this year's Record Store Day Black Friday, November 24th. It was recorded in early 1991 at Conrad Uno's Egg Studios in Seattle, where the band went to record a few demos for then-new songs. Frontman Mark Lanegan suggested, while the gear was set up, why not just record a full session live? It's sat unreleased for 32 years, and includes "Bed of Roses," "Uncle Anesthesia," "Alice Said" and eight more.

Live at Egg Studios comes pressed on white vinyl with a yellow label, making it look just like a fried egg, pretty cool. It's limited to 2,500 copies, so keep an eye out for it when you visit your local record store on Record Store Day Black Friday.

Here's more on the album: "In early 1991 Screaming Trees were in a shambles. Mark Pickerel had left the band a year earlier and Van was off playing bass for Dinosaur Jr. Mark Lanegan and Gary Lee Conner were set to continue with Donna Dresch on bass and a friend of hers on drums. Uncle Anesthesia, the band's first major label album, on Epic, had just been released.

"While it seemed that working with the new band members might work, Gary Lee was despondent at the prospect of again playing in the band without his brother as Van had already quit and come back once in 1988. He came up with a plan to ask his brother to return to the Trees if he could get Van's good friend Dan Peters, who was on a partial hiatus from Mudhoney, to play drums with the band. It worked, Van flew home and the band started rehearsals and soon was touring for the new Epic album."
