|Primal Scream Screamadelica Limited 180gram Audiophile LP
There is no denying the impact of Primal Scream's seminal album Screamadelica when it came out in 1991.
'Madchester' producer Andrew Weatherall had transformed the somewhat insignificant indie band into era-defining chroniclers of their time.
He had taken the song 'I'm Losing More Than I'll Ever Have', chopped it, mashed it, remixed it, added a sample from Peter Fonda's B-movie The Wild Angels, and turned it into 'Loaded'; The anthem that pushed Acid House and Rave Culture (and the excessive drug use that came with it) into the foreground.
Screamadelica was the winner of the first ever Mercury Music Prize in 1992, and since its release it has remained in a number of critics' lists of albums of the '90s.
And yet 20 years after its release this album has proven that it is as timeless as it is a classic. Royal Mail decided to include Screamadelica in its 'Classic Album Cover' set of stamps they issued in 2010, and now Music On Vinyl has given the award winning artwork a very special treatment for its 20th anniversary: this gatefold sleeve includes the entire album on 2 LPS, a 16 page booklet with artwork and liner notes and is embossed with spot UV on the Primal Scream logo.
Bobby Gillespie has compared Ecstacy to a religious conversion, and it is clear that this album could not have come to being without that drug. There is love in every groove, in every sample, in every drumbeat. This album is essential in anyone's record collection!
