Product Description

CD Description

Guitarist Bernard Butler left the band during the mixing of "Dog Man Star", often regarded as Suede's masterpiece. This deluxe re-mastered edition features the non-album a- and b-sides, as well as demos from the collections of Brett Anderson and Bernard Butler, including a previously unreleased song. Also making their first ever appearances are the much sought-after, full-length, unedited versions of "The Wild Ones" and "The Asphalt World".

The DVD features the newly-discovered and previously-unseen exciting footage of the band at the Casino de Paris, playing the "Dog Man Star" songs before the album recording sessions, and the band playing in FNAC in Paris, along with the song-films specially created for the "Dog Man Star" tour, also issued for the first time. The bonus feature is a candid February 2011 interview with Bernard and Brett about the making of the album, along with a short film put together by Simon Gilbert from his own contemporary camcorder footage.

The booklet contains a specially-written note by Brett Anderson, along with all the lyrics, hand-written lyric drafts, studio tracking sheets and tape boxes, and previously unpublished photos from the collections of both the band and their friends.

BBC Review

After the party - the hangover: One year on from the louche-but-rocking debut, Suede had begun to irrevocably fracture at their very core. Luckily, out of such travails are great works of art born.

By this point the chemistry (in all senses) was becoming a little strained. Retreating into a drug-assisted solitude, Brett Anderson's lyrics were less concerned with the politics of modern love and more with the effects of the morning after. Solitude, paranoia and self-loathing were the themes here. When he sings 'If you stay we'll be the wild ones!' it's with a quiet desperation that's clinging to a lifestyle that's gone horribly wrong.

The downbeat mood pervades everything here. Even on peppier rockers like 'The Hollywood Life' or 'New Generation' the guitars of Bernard Butler here sound more spiteful, suffused with a vicious metallic edge. It was here that they formerly parted from the Britpop pack as well ('I don't care for the UK tonight' sings Brett on 'Black And Blue').

At the heart of this album is the real-life drama of Anderson's and Butler's increasing alienation. Before the album had even been mixed the pair, once touted as a Lennon and McCartney for the post-E generation, had split. Butler subsequently told of how he turned up to the studio one day to find all his equipment outside the locked door.

Yet, while Dog Man Star stands as a testament to the destructive power of thrill-seeking love and ego-bloating drugs it remains a far deeper and sonically adventurous ride than its predecessor. There's still a huge dollop of Scott Walker-meets-Bowie-in-the-streets-of-Soho-at-5-in-the-morning archness that can grate. And Anderson's melodrama can be slightly over-egged on tracks like 'The 2 Of Us', yet with its reverb-drenched lushness and fabulously melancholy audio verite ambience (virtually every track is prefaced by or marbled with some low-key moodiness that recalls Talk Talk's golden period) it's an album that continues to fascinate and reward: It's possibly their least dated work.

While the band struggled heroically (and succeeded) to consolidate their success after Butler's departure the legend of the band's lost potential really stems from Dog Man Star. Never had misery sounded so alluring, reaching out to all the lonely urbanites that ever woke up alone. For this alone it remains timeless. --Chris Jones

Suede - Dog Man Star (1994)
Deluxe 2cd/dvd set - June 2011 release review.

Now this may sound silly but to be honest I've not understood the allure of deluxe package before this. I was almost tempted with Pulp's His and Hers and Radiohead's Kid A, but nothing got me going quite as much as when I saw this 2CD/DVD set listed... my heart began to quicken.

This album means a lot to me... Dog Man Star was originally released on my 20th birthday in October 1994. I was a massive Suede fan, having adored their first album as a sixth form student, especially getting lost in the majestic playing of a certain guitarist named Bernard Butler.

Earlier in February 1994, as the charms of Boo Radleys much under appreciated Giant Steps was tempting me away, Suede released the stop gap single Stay Together (finally remastered and released here in almost all it's glory on Disc 2). I found this single just staggering. Being an undergraduate and a cassette man to boot it was the first CD single I ever bought to get the full length version of the single and the extra track (how many bands at the time were worth doing that for?). I taped it and proceeded to wear out my Sony Walkman listening to it. Many say Oasis are the b-sides band, but then these folk have never heard or understood Suede, who set the standard in the 90s. I spent many happy hours on the top deck of buses around Leicester listening with wonder to the guitar heaven of the last 4 minutes of Stay Together, an ingenious, crazed rock opera, or the delicate desperation and beauty of The Living Dead (lyrically along with Still Life Brett's finest moment), OR the soaring majesty of My Dark Star (how many guitarists bother to write a bloomin great solo for the 2nd b-side?).

One of the most seminal records of the '90s, celebrating 20 years since its original release in true and - fittingly- extravagant style. I ordered my copy from Suede's website because I wanted the limited to 500 copies only alternative orange cover edition. Also, by ordering from Suede's website, you get an exclusive 12" vinyl of "Stay together". Amazon's edition of the box set features the original cover, other than that both editions are identical. As with previous Suede box sets, this is likely to sell out before you say Brettpop, so hurry up, you don't want to miss out on this lavish box set of this gorgeous record!

One can only wonder what Suede would have go on to achieve if Anderson andButler had not fallen out. The debut and this spectral masterpiece of analbum could easily stand up to any bands first two albums ever, TheBeatles and The Smiths included. Dog Man Star is very much a winter album.Lyrically it is a very paranoid, reclusive piece. It is alleged that Brettlocked himself in his flat in the middle of nowhere with a mountain ofL.S.D. to write it. Bernard's guitar work is incredibly atmospheric anddense, particularly on the near-ten minute Asphalt World the final cut ofwhich upset him due to it's severe edit! God knows what the demos musthave sounded like. By a mile suede's finest album, it is an undeniablyEnglish work, Syd Barrett, Julian Cope, Kate Bush, and yes, Bowie and theSmiths are all in there somewhere. There are a few up beat glam-stompers,New Generation being the best up-beat number, but most of the set isdrug-addled and claustrophobic. Daddy's Speeding is the oddest track, afeedback entrenched eno-style piece about James Dean that eventuallycollapses under it's own weight. The opener Introducing the Band couldalmost be off Piper At The Gates Of Dawn and Heroine surely IS a DavidBowie song. The reason Dog Man Star is such a work of genius though, isthe last four tracks. Roughly 25 minutes of music that is so enormous thatif Brett and Bernard had stayed together, they would have probably landedon the moon. The 2 Of Us is a dark, sparse romantic ballad written about apossibly imaginary lover, Black or Blue is another drug track which couldbe out of a particularly creepy West End musical, The Asphalt World iscolossal and features Butler's best ever guitar work and closer Still Lifeis the last track because it simply can't be followed, so vast andglorious is the orchestral outro.Read more ›
