SLOWDIVE Just For A Day (Scarce 1991 UK 9-track vinyl LP featuring their classic debut album released on the legendary Creation label picture sleeve with picture inner. The sleeve has a small area of gloss loss to the front however otherwise shows little wear and the vinyl is Near Mint. A great copy of this classic album! CRELP094)

Anyway,what a treat!Swirling guitars and dreamy vocals from a classic period in British rock;just between the first dance craze of the late 80's and grunge.
A rather psychedilc,swirling vibe to the whole album,which I like to listen to under golden autumn leaves after a pint and a smoke.
Dream away kids............then buy 'Loveless'or 'Isn't Anything' by My Bloody Valentine,or 'Nowhere' by Ride.
An education in a sorely underrated era of British music.
This reissue of 'Just for a Day' is worth getting as it presents the complete picture of Slowdive's early work - the second disc including those e.p./single releases as well as a 1991 Peel Session featuring the otherwise unreleased 'Song1.' The debut single 'Slowdive/Avalyn' is excellent setting the tone for 'Morningrise' and 'Holding Our Breath' - the lead track from the latter ('Catch the Breeze') made the album, but the cover version of 'Golden Hair' and the otherwordly 'Shine' are just as great. While the LP proper didn't blow minds, it did include plenty of great songs, alongside the aforementioned 'Catch the Breeze' there are such joys as 'Brighter', 'Spanish Air', 'Erik's Song' and (classic shoegazing title alert!), 'Waves.'
While 'Just for a Day' isn't a classic album and 'Souvlaki' is the one I'd suggest first, the two-disc expanded version of it including the early releases makes it excellent value and a worthy purchase. Fans of Cocteau Twins, Galaxie 500, Low and My Bloody Valentine should find plenty here to appeal - while it certainly predicts territory explored by Explosions in the Sky, Gwei-Lo, Jeniferever, Mogwai,Radio Dept.Read more ›
