Chicago’s Triple Fast Action will be reissuing their acclaimed album Cattlemen Don’t on a limited-edition double vinyl set and digitally via Forge Again Records. The reissue, which will be released on January 22nd, includes bonus material which, until now, has never been heard. Today, we’re premiering one of those unreleased tracks, “Wes’s Song.”
Band member Brian St. Clair had this to say about the reissue:
“Cattlemen Don’t got a really great push when it was originally released in 1997 via Deep Elm Records. Had we stayed together we probably would have moved onto things like a vinyl issue and another record. While we missed the 20-year anniversary of the album, our desire to get it out on vinyl only increased with each passing year. Finally, after rediscovering all of the lost tapes, we set out to make this a reality. Justin from Forge Again Records connected with me about his interest in the band and wanted to do the vinyl release.
And here we are today with a double album collection which covers not only the 1997 release, but also the three outtakes from those sessions. The diehard fans will also be psyched to know that it also includes six unreleased songs, two from a November 1994 session and four more from a sixteen-track recording session we did at our practice space around the same time we recorded Cattlemen Don’t. We hope all the fans out there enjoy the heart and soul we put into this music.”

Vinyl nerds: Forge Again Records will be offering up 200 exclusive retail only releases on a “natural clear” vinyl variant. This means that the copies available in stores will be different from the ones available by mail order. So plan accordingly!
