Stereophonics - Introducing Keep Calm and Carry On

Biography

Stereophonics release their eagerly awaited new album ‘Graffiti On A Train' on March 4th on their own Stylus Records label.

Kelly Jones has been in this London pub before. But that’s probably not surprising seeing that Jones, and his band Stereophonics, have been nearly everywhere before.

In the past 15 years they’ve toured virtually all over the world, ... Read more in Amazon's Stereophonics Store

Product Description

CD Description

The Stereophonics formed in Cwmaman in 1992, changed their name from Tragic Love Company and set about refining their songs on the local live circuit.

In 1997 they became the first band to sign to Richard Branson's nascent V2 record label and became, simply, Stereophonics.

In August of that year they released their debut album, Word Gets Around, and reached number 6 in the UK album charts. The album, home to 4 hugely popular singles (Local Boy In The Photograph, More Life In A Tramp's Vest, A Thousand Trees and Traffic), earned them a Best New Group BRIT Award and went on to sell almost a million copies.

This phenomenal debut album will now be released as a Deluxe Edition. This 3 disc set comes in luxurious boxset packaging complete with artcards and a replica of Kelly Jones notebook for the album.

The bonus material compiled by the band includes a disc of b-sides from the singles from the album and a third disc of live and session material includiong 8 previously unreleased tracks - a must for any fan.

By D. Richards VINE VOICE

I'll keep this review to the actual boxset and not discuss its musical merrits - you can find professional reviews on any music website these days, plus as a fan I'm slightly biased!

I found this particular edition of the album to be great. I already own the original version from way back in 1997, along with all the singles (both cds 1 and 2! )they released at the time. However I bought this along with the Deluxe edition of "performance" as I liked the prospect of having the b-sides and rarities together in one nice boxset, rather than digging around my cd collection.

Firstly the packaging of the box itself is very nice, and is identical in shape, depth and height to the recent U2 deluxe versions of "joshua tree" and "unforgettable fire". The content of the box set and the way its presented is also identical, open the box to find: a hardback book, a four Art card print photos of the band, and then under them 3 cds in individual cardboard slipcases held in a plastic mould.

The presentation of the set is nice, and the content of the book is good too. It contains the original handwritten lyrics, a copy of the EMI rejection letter, the original running order of the album, along with some pretty good "rare" photos uncovered while they put this set together.

MOST, but not all the b-sides are accounted for on disc 2. However, hardcore fans will note however that 2 tracks from the Thousand Trees Acoustic EP have been put on to the rarities disc and as labelled as "Ltd Australian bonus", while the EIGHT Live b-side songs released in the era are missing altogether: All four from the Live CD2 of "more life" and All four tracks from the Traffic Live CD2, along with the Live XFM version of "not up to you" from the re-issue cd2 of "Local Boy".
