David Gedge has re-curated full-length versions of all twenty-four tracks for a spectacular album that also comprises five bonus recordings, including one featuring the band’s first guitarist, Peter Solowka.
He says: “I decided not to sequence the tracks in chronological order. With six sides of vinyl, you have six ‘beginnings’ and six ‘ends’ to play with, and I felt that the opportunity to build some kind of a musical journey was too good to miss! Listening back to this collection, I have to say that I genuinely believe that, for this project, The Wedding Present have recorded some of our best tracks yet. I loved releasing the singles, but it’s satisfying to have them all rounded up together.”
The DVD features The Wedding Present playing live during the ‘24 Songs Launch’ event at The Old Market, Hove, in January 2022, plus a fascinating ‘fly-on-the-wall’ documentary filmed as the songs were being written, arranged and recorded.
