THE SELDOM SEEN KID LIVE AT ABBEY ROAD – 10TH ANNIVERSARY RELEASE
January 25, 2019
elbow celebrate the 10 Year Anniversary of the recording of The Seldom Seen Kid Live At Abbey Road with the BBC Concert Orchestra with the release of a special vinyl edition on April 19th as part of the Mastered at Abbey Road series. With the previous vinyl version of the album available only as part of the sold out box set in 2012, this new release has been remastered from the digital source recordings and cut to vinyl at half speed for the highest quality audio.
The album is also now available to stream and download for the very first time.
“It was humbling to work with such an amazing group of musicians and arranger Nick Ingman and, even now, I have to pinch myself when I think we are part of the amazing musical history of Abbey Road. We knew we had a ten minute window to re-record anything that went wrong because of the way that orchestras are paid but, with an audience in the room, we were determined to get it right first time. The show felt a bit like unicycling on a high wire to start with, but the result is something that I am eternally proud of.” – Guy Garvey
