Supergrass / I Should Coco: three-disc deluxe edition and vinyl

ishouldcoco

As reported on this blog in February, Supergrass‘ 1995 debut album I Should Coco is to be released as an expanded deluxe edition. SDE can reveal that a three-CD set – packed with unreleased demos, outtakes and live material – is scheduled for release in September and a vinyl edition will also be issued.

The 20th Anniversary Collector’s Edition of I Should Coco has a remastered version of the album on disc one, with a second disc of ‘B-Sides, Demos, Out-Takes & Curios‘. This CD rounds up all the official B-sides and extra tracks and augments with unreleased material including four-track demos of album tracks such as I’d Like To Know, Alright, Lenny and She’s So Loose. This disc also includes early Backbeat Records A and B-sides which were not the same as the versions released when the group signed to Parlophone.

The third CD features two live sets; one from Bath in late 1994 before the album had been issued, and the second set is from France in August 1995 by which point the album and all the singles had been released.

The vinyl reissue will come with the bonus red vinyl seven-inch single just like it did back in the day. This contains a cover of Hendrix’s Stone Free and the John Peel Session version of B-side Odd?. It’s also pleasing to discover that the front cover has been re-photographed at high resolution from the original painting by The Moody Painters who created all artwork for the original release and singles. So for once, we should get a nice pin-sharp cover image on a vinyl reissue.

I Should Coco is reissued on 4 September 2015. Amazon UK have now updated their listing, confirming that it is the 3CD edition.

    I’ll be the first to say that I can’t believe it’s 20 years since I first bought this album!

    Some interesting additions on the extras discs, looking forward to it.

  2. Mike the Fish says:

    Not my bag, but looks very well compiled: pre-album release and post singles release sets look good too.

  3. Gazelle says:

    An interesting approach on CD2: alternative versions of all thirteen ‘I Should Coco’ tracks sequenced in the same running order as the original album.

  4. Gary C says:

    God we are old…
    I remember taking this back to a store in Perth and swapping it for the Black Grape debut. Not something i regret, but I did enjoy some later releases by Supergrass.

  5. Charles says:

    The release of this album is a special memory for me. It came out of nowhere seemingly and blew my mind. It made the summer of 95 very memorable. This set looks great, I’ll be getting the CD and vinyl for sure. I hope it does well because having the same treatment done for In It For The Money would be the end all.

  6. Paul English says:

    The original vinyl seems to be going for £60+

    It’s worth pointing out that this album – and quite a few others from the mid 90s – did not fly out the shops at the time. Virgin in Dublin got four copies in – all with the free 7″. I bought one while the other three stayed there for weeks afterwards.

    I’m in the this-album-blew-my-mind-in-’95 category. In the heat of a New York summer, I went to their show at Mercury Lounge, a pretty tiny club on Houston Street. So, so good live. And they played at least as fast as any hardcore band from the ’80! Literally couldn’t wait to get a copy of the CD. Having two shows from that era in good sound — that’s enough to earn my funds! B-sides, rarities; the complete package.

  8. Billy Dojcak says:

    Saw the Alright video on MTV a couple times then nothing. Didn’t buy the album cause the cover freaks me out. Was unaware they had anymore lps in the U.S. Until the hits compilation.

  9. Rudi says:

    Do you know if the vinyl come with a download which contains all of the bonus tracks which appears on the cd version?

    Same question as above, I’d like to get the vinyl but do you get a download code? Anyone know?
