Dry As a Bone is the second EP by the American rock band Green River. It was released in July 1987 through Sub Pop Records.



The EP features the band's first material with guitarist Bruce Fairweather, formerly of bassist Jeff Ament's previous band, Deranged Diction. In June 1986, the band began production on its second EP with local producer Jack Endino at Reciprocal Recording in Seattle, Washington. Green River chose to record Dry As a Bone for Bruce Pavitt's new label, Sub Pop Records. However, Pavitt couldn't afford to release it until the following year, and, as had happened with Come on Down, the record was delayed. Dry As a Bone was finally released through Sub Pop Records in July 1987, a full year after it was recorded. It was the new label's first non-compilation release. Dry As a Bone was promoted by Sub Pop as "ultra-loose GRUNGE that destroyed the morals of a generation."[2] The album's cover art was photographed by Charles Peterson. The song "Ozzie" was done originally by Tales of Terror. Steve Huey of Allmusic has called it Green River's "strongest individual release...perfecting their sleazy, raucous fusion of '70s hard rock and post-hardcore punk."[1] It was reissued in 1990 along with the album Rehab Doll (plus bonus tracks) as the Dry As a Bone/Rehab Doll compilation album. One of the bonus tracks from the reissue, "Searchin'" was recorded during the Dry As a Bone sessions.[3]
