MCALMONT & BUTLER THE SOUND OF McALMONT & BUTLER: 20 YEAR Limited Deluxe Box Set

Overview:
• Featuring the duo’s much-loved classic album 'The Sound of McAlmont & Butler' (remastered by Bernard Butler himself from the original tapes), a 15 track bonus CD with singles, demos, instrumentals, BBC radio sessions and a new 2015 mix of ‘What’s The Excuse This Time?’ by Bernard Butler, and a DVD. The album is also presented on 180 gram vinyl LP, along with an exclusive four track 12” single, all presented in a 12” x 12” 36-page book which includes archive photos and notes by David, Bernard, Nigel Godrich and other musicians and engineers.
• The DVD contains the promo videos for ‘Yes’ and ‘You Do’, as well as the duo’s three appearances on Top Of The Pops, and their appearance on Later… with Jools Holland. Also included is an exclusive hour-long film featuring David McAlmont and Bernard Butler in conversation in June 2015 discussing the writing and recording of the album, and performing three songs acoustically in a friend’s living room.
• On its initial release in 1995 ‘The Sound of McAlmont & Butler’ offered something completely different and refreshing to a country caught up in the mid-Nineties world of Brit Pop, McAlmont's falsetto vocals melding with Butler's intricate arrangements. Eleven superbly arranged and thrillingly executed songs boasted big guitars, seismic strings and startling vocals, and include the instant classic ‘Yes’, a number 8 hit, and
the Top 20 follow-up ‘You Do’.
• To coincide with the release of ‘The Sound of McAlmont & Butler: 20 Year Deluxe Remaster’, the duo have announced a full UK and Ireland tour for November 2015 and will be joined by a very special backing band including members of The Magic Numbers and a string section.
