Ferris Wheel on Fire

Ferris Wheel on Fire is the second EP by American psych folk band Neutral Milk Hotel, released as part of their Walking Wall of Words compilation package. Though not released until December 12, 2011, all the songs were written between 1992 and 1995. Ferris Wheel on Fire includes five songs that up to that point had never been officially released (the title track, "Oh Sister", "Home", "I Will Bury You in Time", and "My Dreamgirl Don't Exist"), two songs originally released on the band's official debut album On Avery Island that had been reworked and re-recorded ("April 8th" and "A Baby For Pree/Glow Into You"), and one song that was released as the B-side of the "Holland, 1945" single ("Engine"), an outtake from the In the Aeroplane Over the Sea sessions.[1]
