Dead In The Boot [2020 Repress]


A fine collection of footnotes in the Elbow story, the downtempo dirges and audio sketches that support the rest of their vast body of work.

Roll-up, roll-up for a remastered version of Elbow's B-Sides album: 'Dead in the Boot'.

The compilation brings together B-Sides and hard to find non-album tracks from the band's lengthy recording career. The release tells an alternative Elbow story beginning with the early years, with tracks like 'None One' from the original 'Newborn' EP in 2000, right up to 'Buffalo Ghosts' from 'Open Arms'.

Mostly self produced, it was recording B-Sides throughout the years that allowed the band to hone their studio skills which in turn led to Craig fully producing and mixing the band's two albums 'The Seldom Seen Kid' and 'Build a Rocket Boys!''.

Guy Garvey says it's a more 'late night' album - mostly downtempo, moody and melancholic. Sounds good to us.
