Originally released in 1987 and long out of print, Dualtone Records reissued The Silos' definitive recording 'Cuba,' in 2015. Pressed on white vinyl, the reissue includes a free digital album download and an 11" x 17" print of the poster that came with the original release.
Formed in New York in 1985, The Silos are considered "one of the pioneering bands of the early alternative country scene" (All Music). The Silos' second album, 'Cuba' was a breakthrough for their conceptual country-rock sound, earning them the title of "Best New American Band" in Rolling Stone the year of its release, and is often cited as a major influence on the forthcoming alt-country movement of the early ‘90s.
"The Silos' best album, and one of the best albums ever." - PopMatters
"One of the great rock albums of the late ‘80’s." - Esquire
"'Cuba' is one of those albums that...has become a kind of talisman among true music fans. Its mention elicits nods of approval and agreement from like-minded souls, and kicks the next phase of the conversation into enthusiastic high gear. When you meet people of taste who are unfamiliar with it, the prospect of turning them onto it becomes a palpable pleasure. Because you know that 'Cuba' exists inside everyone, and this extraordinary album can take you there.” - Anthony DeCurtis, Rolling Stone
