Product Description


Like Blur, the Charlatans started out as seemingly slight "Madchester" wannabes: Remember the organ-driven hit "The Only One I Know", which nicked its hook from Deep Purple's "Hush"? But the group has matured over the last seven years, becoming a gutsy rock band with a penchant for psychedelicized blues, not unlike the Rolling Stones of Aftermath and Between the Buttons. Sadly, organist Rob Collins was killed in a car crash in Wales in July, 1996, midway through recording this album. His bandmates drew on their pain to complete a cathartic set of songs such as "With No Shoes" and "How Can You Leave Us", which serve as a fitting tribute. --Jim Derogatis

Product Description

Released in 1997, when it went straight to the top of the album charts, 2012 marks the 15th anniversary of Tellin Stories. Building on the sound of their eponymous, previous release (The Charlatans - also a No.1), the band s performance has the feel of a classic British Rock band combined with the more focused songwriting of Britpop . It has aged well.

The Charlatans will be playing a series of dates this summer, performing the album in it s entirety and to mark the occasion Archive / Beggars Banquet are releasing a special expanded edition on vinyl and CD.

The first disc is the original album, re-mastered and cut from the analogue studio tapes, while the second disc is a collection of the single B sides plus an unreleased, early version of 'Don't Need A Gun', originally entitled 'Rainbow Chasing'. Of the eight B sides only half were re-issued on the compilation 'Songs From The Other Side'.
