Y (Remastered Definitive Edition 3CD)

$26.62

Y is the highly influential and innovative debut album by The Pop Group, released in 1979. In the same year The Pop Group released their debut single She is Beyond Good & Evil / 3:38

This is the 40th anniversary definitive 3CD edition of Y remastered from the original tapes and featuring the ten track album Alien Blood, and the live album Y Live.

Alien Blood is the result of the band’s meticulous process revisiting the original 2" tapes of their studio sessions and recordings, unearthing never-before-heard material. Alien Blood reveals the life of Y before everything was finalized, exposing revelatory dimensions within these iconic works.

The Y Live album is an essential addendum to the original release, one that captures all the fierce urgency of The Pop Group’s live performances at the time. Comprised of Y era recordings captured at a variety of locations including New York, Manchester & Brussels, Y Live exemplifies what had proved so thrilling about The Pop Group. A snapshot of a time when the group were sharing stages with future acolytes including Cabaret Voltaire, Linton Kwesi Johnson & Public Image Ltd, Mark Stewart describes the recordings as attempts to ‘paint the impossible’.
