The Wedding Present Announce Tommy 30
While I’m partial to George Best due to its Manchester United association, Tommy isn’t far behind on my list of great albums by The Wedding Present. News recently broke that after celebrating George Best at 30 the band have gone back to rerecord Tommy to celebrate its 30th birthday. In the tune below, you can hear the impact of the rerecording and how it changes the sounds for Tommy. For starters, things were fast and furious on the original 7″ for “Go Out and Get Em Boy”, and the vocals seemed hidden in the mix. The reimagining has things open up with the guitar sound much more crisp, which in the end, opens up space for David Gedge to show just how far he’s grown as a vocalist…talk about aging like a fine fine wine.
