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.

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 ›

When these albums were released by Renascent in the early 2000s, they came housed in what can only be considered as beautifully and careful packaging. Lyrics were produced along with the late Adrian Borland’s comments about songs. It was clear from the outset that Renascent’s aim was in creating lovely releases, similar to what, say, Postcard Records and Factory Records, had done.

Yet, however, the sound (no pun intended) quality of those discs are flat sounding and there was no sparkle in the music. In fact, I had audio versions (TDK MA metal tapes) that my friend had applied some EQ on that sounded better. In fact, I could not listen to the Renascent discs at all despite admiring the presentation that housed the discs.

This has now changed. Edsel have put together a box set of The Sound’s Warner Brother days and my goodness the music sounds clearer, balanced and full of sparkle: they even outperform the audio recordings that I had! Borland’s guitar is salient on all four discs, Mike Dudley’s drumming has depth, Graham Bailey’s bass can at times make floor vibrate (well I am playing them through my B & W AS2 subwoofer) and Colvin Mayers keyboards embroiders the music in a way that I have not heard before.

Of course, there are niggles regarding what could have been included in the box set such as a replica of the full gatefold to Lions Mouth and the inner bag to Jeopardy. Also, it would be nice to have had the commentary by Borland found on the previous cd’s reproduced but that matters little compared to the music found on these discs. Phil Kinrade has done a remarkable job on these remasters and Edsel have done justice by housing the discs in a mini-lp format reproducing the original sleeves.

Individually these albums on CD were fetching at least twice the price of this entire box set just a couple of years ago, so needless to say this 4CD set for just over £12 represents astonishing value currently. If you know of The Sound, chances are you will already have owned and cherished these 3 albums for some time, however you may not have the comprehensive extras that this box set includes from that era (mostly previously available on the fantastic and now very collectable Renascent reissues). If you are looking to further discover The Sound then this is the obvious purchase, as it includes everything from the first half of their career.

Tim Peacock’s sleeve notes offer interesting insights into the recordings of the albums, and the band’s numerous problems with major labels. From the extras the original version of We Could Go Far is a treat to hear, minus the bass drum that Warners apparently insisted on adding to the final mix to make it sound “more commercial”, somewhat missing their vision for the LP’s playout track to say the least.. Point Of No Return hones the distinctively discordant minimalist sound of their Jeopardy recordings, and Hot House is a beautifully-produced, arranged and oddly-uplifting single, given the moodier feel of the Lion’s Mouth era recordings, that captures them firing on all cylinders.

The BBC sessions tracks are equally as strong their official recordings - I Can’t Escape Myself for example sounds like it was recorded in front of a festival audience, such is the passion, typical of their live performances.
