2CD + DVD + LP + 12″ // 2CD+DVD
Featuring the duo’s much-loved classic album, ‘The Sound of McAlmont & Butler’, remastered by Bernard Butler himself from the original tapes, a 15 track bonus CD includes singles, demos, instrumentals, BBC radio sessions and a new 2015 radio mix of ‘What’s The Excuse This Time?’ by Bernard Butler. The album is also presented on 180 gram vinyl LP, along with an exclusive four track 12” single, all presented in a 12” x 12” 32 page book which includes archive photos and notes.
Showcased across the DVD are the promo videos for ‘Yes’ and ‘You Do’, as well as the duo’s three appearances on Top Of The Pops, and their legendary appearance on Later… with Jools Holland. Also included is an exclusive hour-long film featuring David McAlmont and Bernard Butler in conversation in June 2015 discussing the writing and recording of the album, interviewing each other and performing three songs acoustic in a friend’s living room.
After pursuing solo careers for several years, McAlmont & Butler recently re-united for two sell out charity concerts in 2014. The first show originally intended for a small intimate audience at the Union Chapel in London, sold out in minutes via social media and with a second show hastily announced tickets went as quickly. Both shows were a triumphant success lauded by fans and critics alike with The Guardian awarding 4 stars – a joyous celebration of McAlmont and Butler’s new and old songs.
McAlmont & Butler: ‘The Sound of McAlmont & Butler 20 Year Remaster’ will also be available as a 2 x CD + DVD package. Exclusive to the D2C store, 500 copies will come with a signed 10 x 8 print.
