Release Date:05/13/2016;Notes:Double vinyl LP pressing in gatefold jacket including bonus seven inch single. Factory Benelux presents a deluxe edition of LC, the second studio album by cult Manchester group The Durutti Column, originally issued in 1981 and ranked among Vini Reilly's finest albums. After recording debut album The Return of The Durutti Column with producer Martin Hannett in 1979, virtuoso guitarist Vini Reilly purchased a TEAC four-track recorder from Bill Nelson and began producing his own material. These evocative demos were perfected by Reilly at Graveyard Studio with co-producer Stuart Pickering, with additional drums and percussion from Bruce Mitchell. Originally released by Factory Records in November 1981, LC is a key album in a body of work described by David Stubbs of Uncut magazine as unique in rock, with Reilly's scampering, watercolor guitar style building a tentative bridge between post-punk and the chamber sketches of Debussy and Ravel. On this expanded Factory Benelux the original ten tracks are supplemented by no less than nine bonus cuts, including rare Sordide Sentimental single ‘Danny’/’Enigma’, and the three tracks Reilly contributed to A Factory Quartet in 1980 - his last recordings with Hannett, which feature Donald Johnson of A Certain Ratio on drums. The remastered double disc set is housed in a gatefold sleeve printed on matt reverse board, with liner notes and archive images. The package also includes an exclusive 7-inch single featuring live versions of ‘Sketch for Summer’ and ‘Requiem for a Father’, recorded at Leeds Polytechnic in October 1980. These are the earliest surviving professional live recordings of Durutti Column in concert.;Track List:1. A1. Sketch for Dawn (1);2. A2. Portrait for Frazier;3. A3. Jaqueline;4. A4. Messidor;5. A5.
