Info: Dixie, the classic 1994 album from Richmond, VA punk-rock legends AVAIL, is back in print and better than ever. The album's original 12 tracks of highly personal, Americana-punk have now been remastered and beefed up by the addition of 11 bonus tracks (compiled from the Attempt to Regress 7" and the 10" Live at the Kingshead Inn), new liner notes and loads of rare photographs. Dixie is the rallying cry that truly put AVAIL on the map, belted out in emotive tales of the struggle of everyday Southern life and backed by unfathomably huge hooks and an unbridled rage.
