Matador Records It Could Have Been A Brilliant Career Vinyl Reissue Series
Out of Print Since 2012
As Belle and Sebastian finish work on their ninth studio album (recorded in Atlanta with Ben H. Allen), Matador Records is excited to announce that their vinyl catalog – currently out of print – will be back in print for a limited time in the fall of 2014. The It Could Have Been A Brilliant Career series is an opportunity to revisit the band’s treasured output and unique, consistent aesthetic, as well as an opportunity for fans to complete their collections and enjoy the music via the warmth of vinyl.
Titles include all of the band’s full-length studio albums and compilations (save for the Storytelling soundtrack, which was never released on vinyl in the US) such as Tigermilk (1996), If You’re Feeling Sinister (1996), The Boy With The Arab Strap (1998), Fold Your Hands Child You Walk Like a Peasant (2000), Dear Catastrophe Waitress (2003), Push Barman To Open Old Wounds (2005), The Life Pursuit (2006), The BBC Sessions (2008), Write About Love (2010) and The Third Eye Centre (2013).
Recorded in Los Angeles with producer/mixer Tony Hoffer, 2006's The Life Pursuit is Belle And Sebastian's seventh full-length offering and as thrilling, funny and focused as any recording to date in the group's revered canon. The release marked a newfound confidence in the Scottish collective, elevating Belle & Sebastian from cherished undergroundlings into masters of modern songcraft. Back in print for the first time in years!
