Blueboy's '... Horses' album re-issued
Blueboy’s first album, originally released in 1992, will be reissued on El Records on 18 January. In keeping with the Sarah Records tradition, the original album was an 8-track mini-album with no singles or previously / later released tracks, but it is re-released with addition of the band's first four singles and their B-sides as a 19-track album. All of this material has been unavailable, except for download, since around the time Sarah shut up shop in 1995.
Tracklisting after the jump.
Blueboy were formed by lyricist and singer, Keith Girdler, and songwriter and guitarist, Paul Stewart in Reading in the early 1990s. Since meeting around a decade earlier, Paul and Keith had been in various bands together before Blueboy, and had sent previous demos to Sarah. However, it was the demo for Clearer, which was released in 1991 as their first single, which got them their deal.
Whilst their initial releases were gentle and acoustic, they expanded into a full band, with bass, drums, keyboards and cello, and eventually including Harvey Williams on guitar. Their later albums will be reissued on EL Records, of which Keith and Paul were both huge fans, over the coming months.
