Following the recent discovery of these tracks in a box lurking in Andrew Innes’ basement, the original studio recordings from Memphis of the tracks that eventually would become their 1994 album ‘Give Out But Don’t Give Up’, finally see the broad light of day.

In 1993, Primal Scream went to Memphis to make an album with Tom Dowd and the Muscle Shoals rhythm section. the resulting recordings from those classic sessions showcase the more country soul, rock’n’roll side to a band who continue to surprise. Dowd’s deft production, coupled with the merging of this sublime rhythm section and one of the UK’s best ever bands, led to the creation of nine glorious tracks that run the gamut between blues, gospel and brilliant songwriting, available for the first time. “indie-rocker’s journey into southern soul ‘redeemed” 4/5 – mojo.
