SERIES OF CLASSIC LIVE WEDDING PRESENT ALBUMS RELEASED
The Wedding Present have released a series of live albums on their own label, Scopitones.
This series of re-mastered double CDs collects recordings from The Wedding Present's infamous 'live tapes'; cassettes that the band sold at shows and through their fanzine in the 1980s and 1990s. The recordings were not available from anywhere else. Fans eagerly collected them and they became very rare.
Here is a list of the albums released so far. Copies can be purchased from the merchandise page of this web site by clicking here.
