Steve Wynn first gained fame as lead singer and songwriter for the legendary Paisley Underground outfit The Dream Syndicate. But his post-Dream Syndicate solo career is the equal of any indie-rock singer-songwriter you'd care to name. Now, Real Gone Music and Steve Wynn have joined forces to release Decade (yup, the Neil Young reference is deliberate), an 11-CD set that chronicles, with lavish deluxe editions, the guitar-driven albums Wynn recorded between 1995 and 2005, most of which have been long out-of-print. The statistics on this box set are mind-blowing: 166 tracks, 57 of them totally unreleased, plus 31 other rarities and a 48-page book featuring unreleased photos is also included. The tracks hail from the following albums: the American releases Melting In The Dark, Sweetness and Light, My Midnight, Here Come The Miracles, Static Transmission, and... Tick... Tick... Tick, and the German-only compilation The Emusic Singles Collection that includes rare tracks from the European-only release Pick of the Litter.
