2009 Remastered Version. Death Valley '69 was originally released on a 1984 7" backed with Brave Men Run. Both songs were demo versions recorded in July '84. Death Valley is slightly slower than the Bad Moon Rising version released later. There also isn't as much lyrical interplay between Lydia and Thurston. This download is an ALAC file.
