Info for Up To Here (Remastered)
Throughout the fall of 1988 we hoped our contract situation would be resolved and we could get into a studio to record our first full length album. By the end of the year we were signed and introduced to Don Smith who had been given some of our pre-production tracks and was ready and willing to produce. At first we did not know who Don was but his recent credits impressed us [Tom Petty, Keith Richards, Roy Orbison and The Travelling Wilburys]. We ended up at Ardent Studios in Memphis as Don liked Ardent Believe In You throughout 1988 so we had a fairly good idea how we wanted them to sound on record. We had plenty of time to get to know to know Don, the studio and Memphis. We had five and a half weeks of studio time booked. Unlike our EP sessions when there was no time to get the sound just right we had plenty of to time refine the music when necessary for the songs on Up To Here. Don and Bruce Barris, the old pros in the studio, with the rookies made invaluable suggestions that made Up To Here better. Don Smith continues to be a positive influence on our recording projects. He has also assisted us in various capacities with Road Apples , Live Between Us , and Phantom Power.
"Canada's favorite boys the Tragically Hip push the sounds of heartland and down-home country-rock on their second album, Up to Here. This album also marks the band's first stateside release, and basically it's a record of burgeoning talent, suggesting what is yet to come from the Tragically Hip. Frontman Gordon Downie is raw and rugged, twisting American trad rock into gritty rock & roll. There's a lot of heartfelt emotion woven into pure musical swagger on songs like "New Orleans Is Sinking" and "When the Weight Comes Down." "Blow at High Dough" follows the lead of its foot-stompin', hand-clappin' rock tracks." (MacKenzie Wilson, AMG)

The Tragically Hip
Critically acclaimed for more than three decades, The Tragically Hip has been at the heart of the Canadian musical zeitgeist, evoking a strong emotional connection between their music and their fans that remains unrivalled in this country. A five-piece group of friends including Rob Baker (guitar), Gord Downie (vocals, guitar), Johnny Fay (drums), Paul Langlois (guitar) and Gord Sinclair (bass), who grew up in Kingston, Ontario, The Hip has achieved the enviable status of a band that enjoys both mass popularity with more than 8 million albums sold worldwide, as well as peer recognition through 16 Juno Awards - and the fourth-most ever for an artist – picking up their last two in for Group of the Year and Rock Album of the Year for Man Machine Poem. Their studio catalogue includes their self-titled debut album The Tragically Hip (1987), Up To Here (1989), Road Apples (1991), Fully Completely (1992), Day For Night (1994), Trouble At The Henhouse (1996), Phantom Power (1998), Music @ Work (2000), In Violet Light (2002), In Between Evolution (2004), World Container (2006), We Are The Same (2009), Now For Plan A (2012) and Man Machine Poem (2016). Through their career the band became a cultural touchstone in Canada; receiving the distinguished Order of Canada and even being featured on a set of postage stamps. The band’s final concert in their hometown of Kingston, Ontario took place on August 20th, 2016 and was broadcast nationally on CBC to a record breaking audience of 11.7 million, the second highest audience ever in Canada.
