LP - black vinyl

During the 80s Felt made ten albums and ten singles for the Cherry Red and Creation labels. A beautifully produced series of re-issues examines the work of one of the greatest underground groups of modern times.

The first five albums were re-issued on 27th October 2017. These vinyl records, unavailable for many years, were remastered and revisited by Lawrence, and he fashioned the ultimate definitive collections. They are available in deluxe gatefold sleeve.

Before the Stone Roses and after Be-Bop Deluxe and Plastic Ono Band, John Leckie worked with Felt. Booked into a metal/reggae studio in Birmingham’s industrial wasteland he sculpted a Michelangelo slice of new rock – exquisite and beautiful guitar odysseys – quite unlike anything the city had experienced before. Merging pop with a classical nuance Felt stood alone as the forerunners of a brand-new style. And Gary Ainge was finally allowed to use his high-hat!
