The Verve’s stunning debut album from 1993 gets a thorough overhaul with this wonderful 4-disc boxed Super Deluxe Edition. Remastered by Chris Potter (co-producer of the band’s ‘Urban Hymns’) the original album comes amply augmented by all of the legendary pre-album EP tracks, associated acoustic versions, as well as two previously unreleased BBC radio sessions and two excellent previously unreleased studio albums – ‘South Pacific’ and ‘Shoeshine Girl’.
The DVD presents a 1992 Camden Town Hall concert, the US promo video for ‘Blue’ plus unseen footage of the band in New York in October 1992. There’s also a new video for the unreleased ‘South Pacific’, made from the album’s recording sessions, as captured by producer John Leckie. The package, which comes in a lift-off-lid box, also includes four post cards, a poster and a 48-page book featuring new interviews and previously unseen photos
