Such a great record. I am surprised that I hadn't already posted The Reivers as they are one of my favorite 90's bands. I thought for sure I'd already posted this release. Thanks for the reminder to the requester.
The Reivers began their existence as Zeitgeist,
one of many melodic, jangly pop bands to emerge from the fertile
Austin, Texas music community during the 1980s. Led by
singers/guitarists John Croslin and Kim Longacre, Zeitgeist debuted in 1985 with the album Translate Slowly, which included their cover of Willie Nelson's
"Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain." Shortly after the record's release, the
group was slapped with a cease-and-desist order by another band called
Zeitgeist, a Minneapolis-based percussion ensemble which had held the
name longer; in honor of the William Faulkner novel, they became the
Reivers. With Don Dixon producing, the band recorded 1987's Saturday, followed two years later by the assured End of the Day. 1991's Pop Beloved was the Reivers' final record; after their break-up, Croslin went on to produce the band Spoon.
