LIMITED SIGNED EDITION: Ian Broudie / Tales Told - CD edition
Tales Told expanded CD
SIGNED by Ian Broudie (SDE exclusive) • Expanded with bonus tracks • Revised artwork • Remastered
Ian Broudie’s 2004 solo debut Tales Told is reissued on CD with four bonus tracks, including three previously unavailable recordings. The album was recorded in Liverpool during a series of sessions with members of The Coral and The Zutons and is reissued by Pete Paphides' new label 'Needle Mythology'.
Tales Told marked a departure from Ian’s previous work with The Lightning Seeds. Instead, Ian stripped his songwriting to its bare fundaments, drawing on personal events in his life to create an album of tender, lovelorn ruminations.
Ian is best known for his work with The Lightning Seeds, whose debut single Pure heralded a run of well-loved hits which included Sense, The Life of Riley, Marvellous, Lucky You, Change and You Showed Me. With The Lightning Seeds, Ian was also responsible for the multi-platinum single Three Lions, which in 2018 made chart history when it enjoyed its fourth spell at number one – the most enjoyed by the same artist.
For this release, the artwork has been revised and includes an alternate front cover image, approved by Ian Broudie. The CD is presented as a vinyl replica card sleeve and includes lyrics and notes by Ian Broudie.
The audio has been remastered by Guy Davie at Electric Mastering and the four bonus tracks are Home From Home (Band Version), Song For No One (Demo), Shifting Sands and Something Street (Early Version).
