Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - Murder Ballads (2xLP)
Fourteen classic Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds albums have been made available for the first time on heavyweight 180g vinyl. Each album has been re-mastered (overseen by Mick Harvey, former Bad Seed and founder member), and all album artwork reflects the original release from the cover to the printed inner sleeves.
Originally released on the 5th February 1996 and recorded in Melbourne and London, Murder Ballads turned out to be the band’s biggest commercial success at the time of its release, garnering much attention from Nick’s lethal duet with Kylie Minogue on “Where The Wild Roses Grow”. Alongside the originals, the album features startling re-workings of traditional songs like ‘”Stagger Lee” and “Henry Lee”. Additional guest singers include PJ Harvey and Shane MacGowan.
