Proclaimers, The - Sunshine on Leith (RSD22 EX) - Vinyl LP(x2) - RSD 2022
2LP (marbled black, white and green). Includes the original album + BBC Radio Session & Live at Glastonbury.
Scotland’s The Proclaimers were originally formed in 1983 by twin brothers Charlie and Craig Reid. With a folk-rock sound, they made an instant impact with their 1987 debut, “This Is The Story”. Wasting no time, their follow-up, “Sunshine On Leith”, was released in 1988. Kicking off with the hit single “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles),” not only would the album become a huge, worldwide success, it would also inspire a stage musical of the same name. This expanded 2LP version now includes a vinyl side of rarities, including non-album tracks from their “King Of The Road” EP, plus another whole side of vinyl of sessions recorded for the BBC. “(I’m Gonna) Burn Your Playhouse” from their 1989 Glastonbury performance acts as a fitting finale to this coloured vinyl set.
