Yes, Virginia: another Generation-X musical touchstone gets reissued with the deluxe treatment. This time it's Liz Phair's 1993 indie rock classic, Exile in Guyville, on the occasion of its fifteenth anniversary. The reissue includes 4 bonus tracks from the album's original recording sessions plus a documentary DVD on the making of Guyville featuring John Cusack, Steve Albini, producer Brad Wood, and Matador Records founders Gerard Cosloy and Chris Lombardi, among others.

Phair who was once signed to and originally released the album on Matador, is now on Dave Matthews' ATO imprint--along with Radiohead--who is releasing the expanded Guyville on June 24th and has signed Phair for an upcoming album.
