It's Great When You're Straight... Yeah - 21 years on

The genuinely seminal 90s classic from Black Grape is getting a timely remaster and re-release in celebration of its 21st anniversary. It's Great When You're Straight... Yeah is the phoenix that rose from the ashes of the addiction busted Happy Mondays.

Fronted by Shaun Ryder and Paul 'Kermit' Leveridge the mix of mumbling non-sequiters from Ryder and spitting rap from Kermit made this something very different from other sounds of the time. In fact over two decades later it's still unique and a county mile ahead of its follow-up.
