Manic Street Preachers | The Holy Bible 20 | Vinyl LP Box Set

  • Sale
  • $ 64.99

Originally released on Epic Records in 1994, The Holy Bible has proved pivotal in the evolution of Manic Street Preachers and the alternative rock music landscape bridging the 20th and 21st centuries. A 1995 US tour, planned in support of The Holy Bible, was cancelled when Richey Edwards, MSP's principle lyricist and rhythm guitarist, disappeared, under mysterious and still unknown circumstances, on February 1, 1995. Edwards' last live show with the Manics was on December 21, 1994 and The Holy Bible contains his last recordings with the band.

Following Edwards' disappearance, the Manic Street Preachers continued to record, tour and develop in his absence, creating a discography of powerful and influential albums and singles and becoming one of the UK's biggest bands in the process. In 2014, MSP released the critically acclaimed UK #2 studio album Futurology and The Holy Bible 20, the definitive collector's edition of the group's 1994 watershed.

Packaged in a 12" x 12" box, The Holy Bible 20 contains the remastered album on vinyl for the first time since 1994 (when it was only released as a limited edition picture disc), plus 4 CDs and a beautifully curated 40-page book with rare, previously unseen images, including exclusive photos by Mitch Ikeda, handwritten lyrics, sleeve notes from Keith Cameron and notes from the band. The CDs contain the full album, the remastered US version, B-sides, mixes, live versions and a previously unreleased version of 'Revol'. There is also a live CD of the band's last performances with guitarist Richey Edwards from the Astoria on December 1994.
