Manic Street Preachers
The Holy Bible 20
20th Anniversary edition of the manic street preachers' classic 1994 album, Available on vinyl for the first time since 1994 (when it was only released as a limited edition picture disc).
On its release in 1994, in many eyes, ‘The Holy Bible’ elevated Manic Street Preachers from being a fascinating, yet flawed rock band with more mission statements than melodies, to an immense intellectual colossus with razor sharp, post-punk tunes that stood out from their contemporaries – it was their masterpiece. The 12” x 12” box contains the remastered album on 180g heavyweight vinyl plus 4 CDs & a 40 page book. The cds contain the full album, the remastered US version, b-sides, mixes live versions & a previously unreleased version of ‘Revol’. There is also a live CD of the band’s last performances with guitarist Richey Edwards from the Astoria on December 1994. It is rounded up with a few acoustic tracks from the album from a recent Radio 4 Mastertapes session the band did in Maida Vale in September 2014.
