The Wedding Present George Best [National Album Day 2019] A reissue of a classic record from The Wedding Present to celebrate National Album Day 2019. Reflecting on the impact of their debut album frontman David Gedge explains; “George Best will obviously always hold a special place in my heart because it’s the first album I recorded. All those years of playing my parents’ LPs and then creating my own record collection - all the time dreaming about being in a band myself - were essentially building to the moment when George Best was released. And, although I think The Wedding Present have made better albums since, there’s no denying that there’s spirit and passion and ambition running through these tracks. It wasn’t particularly planned, but I think the efforts of the four people in the group combined to create a unique and original sound. And it was always going to be a ‘Peel’ album because we were such passionate followers of that programme... even though the ardent Liverpool F.C. supporter could hardly bring himself to announce the title on his show - If you’re going to name your record after old footballers, why not Steve Heighway?” he complained.

The Wedding Present Tommy 30 The 30th Anniversary edition of Tommy from The Wedding Present. Tommy 30 – a brand new re-recording of Tommy – did not come about simply as a ‘follow on’ to George Best 30. The band felt – during a Tommy 30th anniversary concert tour – that the songs had grown and evolved. Enter a more confident vocalist… an altogether growlier guitar. A bigger sound. The urgency of a 25 year old Gedge is replaced with a charming vocalist with years of experience. Everything’s warmer and, maybe, gentler… but in a satisfying way. It’s like your old friends have come home to see you. You’ve all changed, you’ve all had broken hearts… but you’re all still friends and you still enjoy each other’s company after all these years.

The Wedding Present Davni Chasy [RSD19] This is an exclusive release for Record Store Day 2019. Any remaining stock will be available online from Saturday 20th April, strictly one per customer. This single was due to be released in 1988/9 when the band signed to RCA and is ‘The single that never was.’ Test pressings exist but the band pulled the release feeling that it was not appropriate to be the band’s first single on a major label. It has been re-mastered and is now finally getting that release ahead of the 30 year anniversary re-release of ‘The Complete Ukrainian John Peel Sessions’ with artwork re-designed by Jonathan Hitchen, designer of the original 1989 Ukrainski Vistupi LP artwork!
