This November, Universal Music will issue a three-disc deluxe edition of one of the Black Grape’s 1995 debut, It’s Great When You’re Straight…Yeah.
The band were formed in ’93 and of course featured Shaun Ryder and Bez from The Happy Mondays. The album has come of age (it’s 21 years old) and the bonus CD in this new package features rare remixes, live tracks from the band’s 1996 Brixton Academy performance and even the band’s unofficial Euro ’96 football song, England’s Irie, which featured guest vocals from Clash frontman Joe Strummer.
The DVD includes promo videos, and TV performances from Top of the Pops and Later… with Jools Holland (although nothing from TFI Friday!). Paolo Hewitt contributes sleeve notes.
The album went to number one back in the day and delivered three hit singles Reverend Black Grape, In The Name Of The Father and Kelly’s Heroes.
This will be released on 4 November 2016. A vinyl version and single CD will also be available.
