Editors’ Notes

After the moderate success of Hollywood Town Hall, Tomorrow the Green Grass extended that album’s feel for classic rock and country-rock with a touch of orchestration, especially noted on the remarkable single “Blue.” New keyboardist Karen Grotberg gave the band an extra musical foil, but once again it's the harmonies of Gary Louris and Mark Olson that turn solid compositions into heartfelt elegies and campfire-worthy modern folk songs. Even Grand Funk Railroad's "Bad Time" is transformed into a joyous Jayhawks celebration, despite the tenor of the lyrics. Olson would leave the group following this release, but here he’s a main player, cowriting the original material and contributing “Miss Williams’ Guitar,” a tribute to his girlfriend-then-wife, singer/songwriter Victoria Williams; she contributes backing vocals on two cuts. (They divorced in 2006.) Bassist Marc Perlman cowrote "Red's Song" and "Ten Little Kids," while Gary Louris wrote or cowrote 13 of the tracks. Session drummer Don Heffington kept time here, as the band had yet to hire Tim O'Reagan for the drum seat.

The group sprang up in 1985 out of the fertile musical community of Minneapolis, Minnesota, where Olson had been playing standup bass in a rockabilly band called Stagger Lee. His desire to write and perform his own...
