It was one of those life-changing conversations in music nerdery: My best friend, his mid-30s stepdad Matt, his mom and me all sitting around the living room of a rural Iowa dwelling listening to original pressings of Beatles records. “You guys are so lucky,” Matt said. “It’s so cool there are Beatles songs that you still get to discover -- I would give anything to be able to go back and listen to a Beatles song for the first time.” That sentiment has resonated with me ever since -- that with certain bands there can be a level of devotion that nears infallibility, where it doesn’t matter so much that the band is putting forth flawless music, but that the perception of the band as such warrants an attitude where their mere offerings are a gift. Even so much as a whisper of unheard or unreleased music by the band is like a precious stone or a Holy Grail depending on its availability. Somewhere in between is Operation Ivy’s Unity: The Complete Collection.
