Spiritualized Amazing Grace Limited 180gram Vinyl LP

Overview:
· ‘Amazing Grace’ is the fifth album by the British rock
band Spiritualized, so named to indicate its considerable gospel influence.
· After working with free-jazz collective Spring Heel Jack on one of their albums and tour, frontman Jason Pierce was inspired to make a record with the same
principles.
· This approach meant that the rest of Spiritualized were given the songs on the same day as they were
recorded, meaning the record (including orchestral
overdubs) was completed in 3 weeks.
· This is a huge difference compared to its predecessor, ’Let It Come Down’, which took four years to record.
· The album is generally harder-edged than its predecessors, featuring a number of variations on the
familiar Spiritualized ‘Electricity’ garage-rock riff.
· Conversely, ‘The Ballad of Richie Lee’ is a tender,
organ-driven tribute to the lead singer of the American group Acetone, a friend of Pierce, who committed suicide in 2001. The song was used in the final scene of the film ’The Unloved’, whose director, actress Samantha Morton, is a close friend of Pierce's.
· Two singles were released, ‘She Kissed Me (It Felt
Like a Hit)’ and ‘Cheapster’. The former song's title is
a reference to the song ‘He Hit Me (It Felt Like A Kiss)’
by the 1960s girl group The Crystals, and the latter's is a likely reference to T. Rex's ‘Jeepster’.
· 180gm vinyl.
