Formed in 1990 in Liverpool by singer and bassist Edgar 'Summertyme' Jones, guitarist Ged Lynn and drummer Paul Maguire, THE STAIRS quickly attracted a huge cult following with their classic fusion of mid-1960s US garage rock and British R'n'B. Having nearly signed to Imaginary Records, THE STAIRS inked a deal with Go! Discs for three memorable EPs and the album MEXICAN R'n'B (1992). Despite critical acclaim and a loyal following, the album's sales were disappointing and The Stairs' second LP was abandoned after demos were recorded, only to later be exhumed by local label Viper Records. Edgar Jones subsequently carved a niche in making albums that continued to evoke the best of music's past while also remaining contemporary, attracting many heavy fans and admirers (Noel Gallagher and Paul Weller among them - Edgar played in Weller's band for a while). Now properly collectable, with impressive price tags for all of the band's original vinyl editions, MEXICAN R'n'B is treated to it's first-ever reissue, remastered with an array of bonus material across two additional CDs. The project is supported by Edgar Jones and overseen by Mojo magazine's Lois Wilson, who is closely involved with Edgar's career to this day... Includes the singles 'Weed Bus', 'Woman Gone And Say Goodbye' and 'Mary Joanna'. Disc 1 of this 3-CD Digipak is expanded with the non-album tracks from the EP editions. Discs 2 and 3 revisit the material on the Viper compilations Right In The Back Of Your Mind, Who Is This and The Great Lemonade Machine In The Sky 1987-1994.
