The Dream Syndicate: What Can I Say? No Regrets… Out Of The Grey + Live, Demos & Outtakes [Album Review]

What Can I Say? No Regrets… Out Of The Grey + Live, Demos & Outtakes. Ask someone if they know the band Dream Syndicate, and if they were around back in the early 80’s you’ll likely hear something about the Steve Wynn fronted group with the female bass player, Kendra Smith, and their debut album, The Days of Wine and Roses, or maybe, like me, they were introduced to that version of the band when the opened mid-western dates for U2 on the “War” tour in ’83. But that line-up dissolved shortly after that tour, and Wynn soldiered on until 1989 with original drummer Dennis Duck, Mark Walton on bass, and second guitarist Paul B. Cutler. Wynn continued as a singer/songwriter solo artist, and with numerous groups, and then reformed The Dream Syndicate in 2012, replacing Cutler with guitarist Jason Victor.
