'The Clouds That Break The Sky'
3 CD compilation out now28th July 2017
Long unavailable and much of it never on compact disc, 'The Clouds That Break The Sky' gathers up all of the early releases issued on records bearing Band Of Holy Joy's name alone.
The 41 tracks presented here on three CDs originate from their debut studio album, 'More Tales From The City', a series of live recordings released as an album called 'When The Stars Come Out To Play', the 10" EP 'The Big Ship Sails', and three singles / EPs - 'Had A Mother Who Was Proud - And Look At Me Now', 'Who Snatched The Baby' and 'Rosemary Smith', some of which were released in both 7" and 12" formats. These recordings are augmented by four previously unreleased alternate studio versions of songs that turned up in different form on their debut album.
The boxed set is in a clamshell box, each CD housed in its own sleeve, and comes with a 12-page booklet and (exclusively for Bandcamp buyers) two badges - remarkably for a band whose existence spans three decades, their first ever badges!Click here to order 'The Clouds That Break The Sky'.
