1. Product Details

Triple LP version. Includes two CDs Gatefold sleeve with printed inner sleeves. Because Music presents a reissue of The Beta Bands 1999 self-titled debut. Arguably one of the most acclaimed and loved bands of the past 20 years by both fans and their musical peers alike The Beta Band formed in St. Andrews Scotland in 1996. Innovative and singular their unique musical and aesthetic approach to everything they did set them far apart from their musical contemporaries. Together for a relatively short period of time the three albums and three EPs they released between 1996 and 2004 would nonetheless help define them as one of the most exciting and cherished bands of their generation. The Beta Band followed 1998s critically acclaimed compilation The Three E.P.s BEC 5543615 5543616 5543617 2018. With high anticipation for The Beta Band the band originally planned to record the album in four separate continents but financial constraints slimmed the recording locations down. However the album was still recorded in a variety of locations and pulling inspiration from sources as diverse as Jamaican reggae Disneys The Black Hole 1979 and Bonnie Tylers Total Eclipse of the Heart. The band also originally intended the album to contain a bonus disc of two long-form ambient pieces Happiness and Colour and The Hut both of which lasted over 20 minutes and represented the bands desire to make a record of sound as a description for something like happiness where a distinct first part gives way to a distinct second part. However the band and label ultimately decided to remove these tracks from the original album prior to release for this edition they have been restored as a bonus disc.
