Editorial Reviews

Limited four vinyl LP box set. Super deluxe edition of Public Image Limited's seminal fifth studio album issued in a square card box with de-bossed artwork and 72 page booklet together with an exclusive poster and art prints. With it's striking minimalist generic style artwork, Album arrived in February 1986. Written by John Lydon and produced with Bill Laswell (with music for some tracks co-written with Jebin Bruni and Mark Schulz from the 1984-85 PiL live band) the album was recorded in Autumn 1985 in New York with prolific session players such as Steve Vai, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Tony Williams and the legendary Cream drummer Ginger Baker. The album only took three weeks to record, followed by a week of mixing. John Lydon later remarked that Album was, "almost like a solo album" as he was working on his own with several hired musicians. Jazz saxophonist Ornette Coleman came into the studio while the album was being recorded and commented that Lydon sang like he played the saxophone. Lydon said it was, "still the best thing anyone's ever said to me." Album peaked at #14 in the UK charts and features perhaps the most famous PiL track 'Rise', which peaked at #11. As well as rare and unreleased mixes from the album and single's the deluxe edition includes the original demos recorded pre-Laswell with the 1984-85 PiL live band all of which are previously unheard. Two 12" mixes of John Lydon's groundbreaking collaboration with hip hop pioneer Afrika Bambaataa are also included as bonus tracks.
