Description

George Best is the debut album by The Wedding Present; originally released in 1987.

Hugely anticipated, George Best saw indie heroes The Wedding Present refine the blitzkrieg pop brilliance of the band’s early singles into a nuanced styled that was distinctively theirs; heartbreak at the bus stop, set to the soundtrack of a million jangling guitars.

This 3CD + DVD Expanded Edition includes the original album [remastered], non-album single tracks, recordings for BBC Radio 1’s John Peel and other radio stations and concert recordings plus promotional videos, a TV appearance, live footage and a specially filmed acoustic song and interview with David Gedge discussing the album.

All the content is housed in a hardback book which includes lyrics, photos, memorabilia scans and extended notes.

TOMMY – Expanded Edition

Tommy was originally released in 1988, collecting songs from the band’s first four singles plus four tracks recorded for BBC Radio 1 sessions.

Bringing together material written in their first two years of existence, Tommy proved that The Wedding Present’s essence was in place from the start. These kinetic blasts of homespun high-velocity bedsit drama presaged the more finessed George Best but represented the band’s definitive portrayal.

This 3CD + DVD Expanded Edition includes the original album [remastered], alternate versions, recordings for BBC Radio 1’s John Peel, Andy Kershaw and Evening Show programs and concert recordings plus promotional videos, Super-8 footage, TV appearances and a specially filmed acoustic song and interview with David Gedge discussing the album.

All the content is housed in a hardback book which includes lyrics, photos, memorabilia scans and extended notes.
