Damned - The Black Album (Deluxe Version) LP

  • $41.98

(2-CD set) This album gets a long overdue upgrade, featuring added singles released in 1980 plus their flip sides. The lavish booklet features comprehensive notes with details about the recordings never before revealed and many previously unseen shots of the band from the studio and from the Rockfield sessions. Also included is the original mix of the extended version of White Rabbit, which has never been heard, and the single B-Sides Seagulls, I Believe The Impossible and Sugar and Spite appear on CD for the first time. Synthesist Hans Zimmer produced and played on History Of The World Part 1 before going on to a career in original soundtracks from 'Gladiator' to 'Batman' to 'Pirates of the Caribbean'.
Following the pop-punk genius that is Machine Gun Etiquette proved not to be the easiest task for these British punk rock pioneers (not that this is a bad album, by any means). Released as a sprawling, eclectic, and head-scratching double LP in 1980, the nods to the Beatles' White Album are obvious, though not overt. This is a hodgepodge of an album that veers from some of the biggest mistakes the band ever made ("History fo the World, Pt. 1") to their most skeweringly delicious ("Lively Arts") and simply balls-out vicious ("Wait For The Blackout"). If you enjoy albums where you don't know what's going to come next, this one's for you. There's even a twelve minute tune from these three chord wonders, and it doesn't suck. Aside from being newly remastered, this double CD version of the album adds every 7" song the band released in 1980 as well. –Mike McGonigal
