Product Description

A 24 Track Double Cd [18 Track Double Lp] Compiling Eps, Obscurities, Songs In German & French And A Cover Of "Diamonds Are Forever". Partly Recorded By Steve Albini. With Extensive Sleeve Notes By Cinerama's Bass Player. Cinerama is David Gedge s other band, formed in 1998 when The Wedding Present were taking a break. They have released three studio albums and three compilations, of which Seven Wonders Of The World is the third. The Cinerama compilations round up singles and EPs and principally feature tracks that were not included on the studio albums. The CD version of Seven Wonders Of The World also features a stripped down acoustic session that Cinerama recorded for the KRTU radio station in San Antonio Texas in 2009. Gedge used Cinerama to explore a different musical territory to The Wedding Present and often cited John Barry and Ennio Morricone amongst his influences. Although this gave the band a big screen filmic feel Cinerama also often incorporated classic pop as well as surf music into their sound. Some of the singles on Seven Wonders Of The World were taken from Cinerama's 2002 album, Torino, which was described by Uncut Magazine thus : Cinerama are escaping the shadow of Gedge's illustrious indie-legend past. Torino is a giant beast of adulterous lyrical fantasies, cult soundtrack flourishes and the screams of Steve Albini-engineered guitars . Tracklisting: 01. Health And Efficiency (6.20) 02.

The tracks, you already know. 6 of the tracks previously in physical format available only on 7" vinyl, that you had to go out of your way to locate, so it's nice to have these as part of a compilation LP which adds a download voucher.
The product itself is lush, two 180g black vinyls with inner sleeves, picture labels, single pocket outer sleeve. The sleeve artwork is totally beautiful.

Cinerama, as always are wonderful. First heard "Torina" on a long drive from Newcastle to Devon. Fell in love. And Dave Gedge is a Yorkshireman (and a very nice bloke should you happen to meet him
