Mystery Road, the acclaimed 1989 Southern rock classic from Atlanta's Drivin' N' Cryin', is being offered in an expanded reissue. With its hard-charging mix of driving rock, country twang and punk rock sneer, Southern rock, Mystery Road quickly became one of the band's most beloved records when released in 1989. Called a "classic of the genre" by the Washington Post, the album contains two of the Atlanta band's best known songs - the anthemic "Honeysuckle Blue" and the galvanizing sing-along "Straight To Hell" - which nearly three decades later are still fan-favorite fixtures in the road warrior's live sets.

The new, expanded double vinyl edition of the long out-of-print Mystery Road features the remastered original album along with nine previously unreleased demos produced by Peter Buck of R.E.M. The reissue comes complete with essays from Buck and the band's former manager, veteran music industry executive James Barber.

"Mystery Road really exemplified the split personalities of Drivin' N' Cryin'," says singer, songwriter and guitarist Kevn Kinney. "I really felt that the crossroads of Americana were not limited to country and folk and there was more to it than just Townes and Hank Williams. Why not Aerosmith? Why not a little Quicksilver Messenger Service? What about The Seeds and The Trashmen and The Ramones? We have stuck to this thesis in rock n roll ever since. I continually ask the music listener to challenge and confront the label system of the musical industrial complex. Mystery Road was our first real chance to do that."
