Two of the Cocteau Twins‘ later albums have been re-pressed for the first time since their original releases.
‘Blue Bell Knoll and ‘Heaven or Las Vegas’ – the Grangemouth-formed act’s fifth and sixth long players – are available on heavyweight black vinyl, cut from brand-new HD masters.
1988’s ‘Blue Bell Knoll’ was album #5, the first to be recorded in their own studio, September Sound, near London. The album contained no singles, with ‘Carolyn’s Fingers’ being perhaps the most familiar track, appearing in 1988’s John Peel Festive 50 (despite not having been played on the show before then).
‘Heaven or Las Vegas’ was the 1990 follow-up and reached number 7 in the UK album charts, their highest position. Containing single ‘Iceblink Luck’, it was also 4AD label founder Ivo Watts-Russell’s favourite, not just Cocteaus album, but also his favourite all-time release on his seminal imprint.
