Bluetones "Superior Quality Recordings"
Hailing from Heston in West London, The Bluetones (Scott Morriss – bass, Eds Chesters – drums, Adam Devlin – guitars, and Mark Morriss – vocals) arrived on the scene in 1995 with their debut single “Are You Blue Or Are You Blind?”. They followed this up with “Bluetonic” and then “Slight Return”, which reached # 2 on the UK singles chart. The debut album “Expecting To Fly” was released in February 1996, and went straight to # 1. Many more hit singles followed, along with two more hit albums, “Return To The Last Chance Saloon” (# 10) and “Science And Nature” (# 7). This first ever comprehensive box set of The Bluetones’ first period of recordings – from 1994 to 2002 – contains 93 tracks across six CDs. It includes the first three albums – “Expecting To Fly” (1996), “Return To The Last Chance Saloon” (1998) and “Science And Nature” (2000) – plus the collection of pre-fame demos “The Early Garage Years”, forty-five non-album A- and B-sides and rarities, along with three previously unreleased demos (mastered for this compilation by Nigel Clark of Dodgy). The six CDs are presented in facsimile wallets, and the booklet features all the credits, along with memorabilia and ephemera from the band members’ own collections. Box Set # 2 will follow later this year…..
