The Selecter - Celebrate The Bullet TRIPLE CD

Item 55 of 102
€ 21,90 (including VAT)

The Selecters’s second album, Celebrate The Bullet was released in February 1981 as the follow up to the successful 2 Tone debut album Too Much Pressure. Switching labels to Chrysalis Records, the band returned to On My Radio producer Roger Lomas, moving into a more melodic slower pace, whilst keeping their lyrical commentary on racial and social issues.
Original members Desmond Brown and Charley Anderson departed before the recording began, with Lomas and Norman Watt- Ray (Ian Dury) helping on bass before new members James Mackie and Adam Williams joined to complete the recording. Due to unfortunate timing, upon release the title of this album was misunderstood due to the recent murder of John Lennon and an assassination attempt on U.S. President Ronald Regan meant radio stations didn’t support the single or album and the release was largely ignored.
This forgotten classic from the 2 Tone era is a timely reissue and will give time for a re- evaluation in the same way the 2021’s reissue of too Much Pressure showed the band as relevant. Remastered by Alchemy Mastering At AIR from the original production tapes. 
Format & package: 3CD deluxe clamshell box set with 20 page booklet featring bands notes.
Record label: Chrysalis
Year of release: 2022 (reissued from 1981)
