Title: Galore: Deluxe Edition

Digitally remastered and expanded two CD edition. Back in the mid-80s, The Primitives combined the fuzz guitars of the Jesus & Mary Chain with the pop sensibilities of Blondie and a nod to cult heroes the Velvet Underground. They swiftly rose from being a popular Indie guitar outfit to charting worldwide with 'Crash', kick-starting a craze in bands fronted by blonde female singers (Transvision Vamp, the Darling Buds et al). Co-produced by Ian Broudie, GALORE was The Primitives' third and last album for RCA. Issued in 1991, the album was criminally ignored by a pop scene enamored with Madchester and Grunge and has been long unavailable on CD. Despite it's musical strength, fashions had moved on and the Prims disbanded in 1992. The Primitives' profile has not been as high since their heyday, what with the release of a brand new studio album in 2014, which followed their reunion album ECHOES AND RHYMES (2012), as well as Cherry Red's two CD compilation of the band's pre-RCA recordings, EVERYTHING'S SHINING BRIGHT and a deluxe edition of LOVELY. This set boasts all of the band's B-sides and other rare tracks from 1991/1992, including the singles 'You Are the Way', 'Lead Me Astray' and 'Earth Thing' from the SPELLS EP. Also included is the 'Re-Ravishing Mix' of 'You Are the Way', previously available only on a promotional 12". Compiled with the help of guitarist PJ Court, this compilation boasts remastered music as well as a splendid, annotated booklet boasting rare photos and personal memories from the band.
