Constantines – Shine A Light
This deluxe reissue has been made with a newly cut vinyl master and is packaged with a bonus 7” containing 3 B-sides from the time of Shine A Light:
- Thank You For Sending Me An Angel – a cover of the Talking Heads song recorded during the Shine A Light sessions
- I Am A Raw Youth – a live recording of a song by Royal City from a live 2003 CBC session.
- Hotline Operator (2003) –a distinct piece from the song included on the Constantines 2005 LP Tournament of Hearts with which it shares a name. Some might call this a jam; some might call it a trip; it is certainly “out”. In any event it displays an inclination towards free musical expression not always apparent from The Constantines recorded output, but well known from parts of their legendary live shows. Recorded in a fog during the 2003 sessions for Shine A Light.
This is the first ever vinyl pressing for these B-sides.
