THE SOUND - JEOPARDY + FROM THE LION’S MOUTH + ALL FALL DOWN + BBC LIVE IN CONCERT

•    This comprehensive 4CD box set presents the perfect opportunity to reappraise the career of The Sound – the frequently overlooked London quartet who could perhaps should have had an impact on the post-punk era on the level achieved by the likes of Joy Division, Echo & The Bunnymen or The Cure.

•    Across four CDs in wallets in a clamshell box are “Jeopardy”, “From The Lion’s Mouth” and “All Fall Down”, the three legend-enshrining LPs they recorded for Korova and WEA between 1980 and 1982. The albums are supplemented with rarities, b-sides, the recordings with Kevin Hewick, and BBC radio sessions. The fourth CD contains the BBC live in concert recordings.

•    Put together with input from band members Mike Dudley and Graham Bailey as well as Adrian Borland’s father Bob, the box also contains a 36 page booklet with annotation by Tim Peacock of Record Collector, as well as the lyrics and ephemera.

And lastly, but perhaps most importantly, there's going to be a documentary which is currently in a crowdfunding phase. Looking to be about 80 minutes long, the film is tentatively titled, "Walking In The Opposite Direction." A trailer is below, and more info can be found here, and on Facebook. Lets pray the filmmakers are able to complete & release the film!
