Green Day Reissued

(PR) Reprise Records will release re-mastered versions of two classic Green Day albums, the Grammy Award winning band's 1991 debut 1,039/Smoothed Out Slappy Hour, and its second full-length, 1992's Kerplunk, on January 9, 2007.

The reissues capture the best-selling Berkeley, California, trio at the start of its long career, displaying singer Billie Joe Armstrong and bassist Mike Dirnt's relentless three-chord power-punk formula that eventually became a blueprint for countless imitators and led to a revival of interest in American punk.

Originally released on Berkeley indie label Lookout! Records, 1,039/Smoothed Out Slappy Hour was a compilation of Green Day's early no-frills EP's 39/Smooth, Slappy, and 1,000 Hours. In 1992, Lookout! released the more melody-minded Kerplunk, which marked the debut of drummer Tré Cool, who brought an impressive blend of energy, speed, and technique to the mix. The album included the stand-out tracks "Welcome to Paradise" (re-recorded for Green Day's 1994 Reprise debut Dookie), and the rampaging opener "2,000 Light Years Away."
