Original mint copies now fetch in excess of £2,000 on the collectors market! But it’s not just the rarity that merits such value; it’s an album that exudes excellence in every possible way.
Led by the strong charismatic vocals of Clodagh Simonds and Alison Williams, their songs are memorable enough to have lasted this long, when they were, sadly, barely recognised at the time.
For those who can’t afford, let alone ‘find’ an original copy, this is definitely the next best thing and guaranteed to be a strong collectors piece in its own right.
This beautiful deluxe box set includes:
• 100% official release, fully authorized by the band.
• Re-mastered original tapes.
• Contains 12-page LP sized booklet with many unseen photos from band members personal archives.
• Includes replica’s of both Mellow Candle’s rare 7”s. Dan the Wing features the ultra rare promo sleeve, which was only recently known to exist.
• Contains a second disc of pre-Swaddling Songs demo recordings.
