The Black Album/Come On Feel The Dandy Warhols is a 2004 double album released by American alternative band, The Dandy Warhols. The two disc set was released on their own Beat the World Records label. Initially, the album was only available to purchase through the band's website.[1] It is now available to own via other sources.

Overview[edit]

Disc one marks the first, official release of the band's 1996 demo album (The Black Album) which was described as "lost".[2] The album, recorded before ...The Dandy Warhols Come Down, was rejected by Capitol Records and dismissed by the band themselves.[2] Three songs that were included on the original recording of the album are not included on this release: "Traci Lords", "Alien" and "You Get High".[1]

The second disc (Come On Feel The Dandy Warhols) is the first compilation album released by the band. It contains B-sides, covers and previously unreleased material.[3]
