Evergreen 25th anniversary white vinyl LP with SDE-exclusive bonus 'Peel Session 1997' CD
First time on vinyl • White vinyl LP • SDE-exclusive bonus Peel Session numbered CD • Remastered
London Records are to reissue Echo & The Bunnymen's triumphant 1997 'comeback' album Evergreen, which was notable for featuring the UK top 10 hit 'Nothing Lasts Forever'.
The album has been remastered and this is its first ever release on vinyl. This is a white vinyl pressing of Evergreen.
Evergreen marked a critical and commercial renaissance for the band after more than half a decade’s hiatus. In January 1997 Will Sergeant, Les Pattinson and Ian McCulloch came back together in a recording studio for the first time in ten years. The band entered Doghouse studios in Henley-on-Thames in Oxfordshire, as fate would have it at the same time as Oasis, leading to ‘Nothing Lasts Forever’ featuring a 24-year-old Liam Gallagher on backing “yeah, yeah, yeah!”s and tambourine shakes.
The album entered the UK chart at number eight, in July 1997 and while the two further singles may not have repeated the success of the first, they were certainly popular enough and well played on the radio at the time (they were 'I Want To Be There (When You Come)' (#30) and 'Don't Let It Get You Down' (#50)).
Speaking about the album today, Ian McCulloch is modest enough. He says it contains “at least three great songs, which is three more than most bands have in their entire catalogue". He's referring to ‘Nothing Lasts Forever’, ‘Forgiven’ and ‘Just A Touch Away’.
Evergreen will be reissued on 18 November 2022, via London Records.
The SDE-exclusive Peel Session 1997 CD is limited and numbered and is supplied FREE with this white vinyl LP.
