Product description

Product Description

This comprehensive 4CD box set presents the perfect opportunity to reappraise the career of The Sound – the frequently overlooked London quartet who could perhaps should have had an impact on the post-punk era on the level achieved by the likes of Joy Division, Echo & The Bunnymen or The Cure. Across four CDs in wallets in a clamshell box are “Jeopardy”, “From The Lion’s Mouth” and “All Fall Down”, the three legend-enshrining LPs they recorded for Korova and WEA between 1980 and 1982. The albums are supplemented with rarities, b-sides, the recordings with Kevin Hewick, and BBC radio sessions. The fourth CD contains the BBC live in concert recordings. Put together with input from band members Mike Dudley and Graham Bailey as well as Adrian Borland’s father Bob, the box also contains a 36 page booklet with annotation by Tim Peacock of Record Collector, as well as the lyrics and ephemera.

The Sound all hail the Sound what can be said about this incredible band that hasn't been said before. Adrian Borland for me is one of the best songwriters, and guitarists of his generation if not ever. This boxset has to be the best highlight of this year it's very special, 4 discs of quality music for like 14 pound and a lovely 36 page booklet with pictures lyrics and much more. I just can't stop listening to it and looking at it it's that good, my favourite album from The Sound has to be All Fall Down it's solid from start to finish. Brilliant songs and melodies it's amazing really for me The Sound always had hope in their songs.Adrian was such a special musician I wish he was still with us but his memory lives on, through the music I'm sure if he was alive today he would approve of this great boxset!

If you have found yourself here then you’re probably fully aware of Adrian Borland and the Sound

So there is not a lot I can really say. You already know

The middle class chubby cherub was sadly ignored by the music moguls of the time.
London had given the world Punk and the New Romantics (1976 – 1980) so it was time to shift the focus

In a time full of musical subcultures, eyes were firmly fixed on the Midlands and North West of these mystic isles.

These Wimbledon stalwarts deserved to be as big as Echo and the Bunnymen or Joy Division. Why the gods never smiled on them is beyond me. They were more accessible than the aforementioned and their music was just as emotional.
I’m not too sure that this release will attract a new audience, the gems contained within are nearly 35 years old.

It’s difficult to imagine in today’s environment of light speed information dissemination, but there was once a band whose debut album received five-star reviews from both New Musical Express and Melody Maker, and yet that group never gained anywhere near the level of popularity they deserved.

Today, such an act would have 1,000,000 friends on Facebook, and music critics all across the globe would be falling all over themselves to offer their own opinions on the relative merits of this highly touted act. In 1980, however, news was still passed along by means of town criers and the newly invented telegraph system. Or so it must have seemed to The Sound, one of the very finest bands of the post-punk era.

Like many great artists, they toiled in obscurity during their period of peak activity. Unlike most of these great artists, however, they still haven’t caught on.

Popular music is peppered with bands that really should have crossed over into the mainstream and enjoyed wider appeal, but for often unaccountable reasons, remained comparatively unheralded. In the realm of ‘indie guitar bands’ The Go-Betweens, That Petrol Emotion and Kitchens of Distinction spring immediately to mind as bands that should have been huge. Similarly, whilst recent years have seen renewed media and consumer interest in a slew of post-punk bands, with the usual suspects like Joy Division, PiL, Wire, Gang of Four and Magazine garnering the lion’s share of the coverage and praise, London’s The Sound have remained largely unsung.

At the time of their existence, from 1979 to 1988, much the same situation existed. The Sound’s records often met with unanimous critical acclaim in the music press, yet they never managed the same mainstream success that, say, Joy Division eventually achieved. Neither did they gain the same sizeable cult status of their contemporaries The Chameleons and The Comsat Angels, bands with whom they shared certain sonic similarities and aesthetics. Somehow The Sound remained unjustly under-rated and overlooked.

Collecting together the band’s first three albums, EP tracks, radio sessions, incendiary live performances and a scattering of hitherto unreleased tracks, this new box set represents serious value for money. The music is spread over four CDs housed in replicas of the original albums’ outer sleeves, alongside an informative 36-page colour booklet containing an essay on the band, interviews and full lyrics.

The Sound’s 1980 debut album “Jeopardy” is a taut and flab-free blast of post-punk energy.

When you think about how Joy Division, New Order and of course The Cure have been literally deified in the last 30+ years – it’s odd that London’s The Sound don’t hold that same pedestal. Well I’d argue that this brilliant 4CD Edsel Box Set reissue is not only going to change that - but is also a 2014 reissue of the year.Read more ›
