To celebrate the 21st Anniversary of their debut release, Blur’s fourth album The Great Escape has now been remastered from the original tapes by Frank Arkwright (The Smiths, Arcade Fire, New Order, Joy Division), with the remastering overseen by legendary original producer, Stephen Street. Expanded across two discs, the LP format of The Great Escaperemaster is cut on heavyweight 180g audiophile vinyl and is housed in a replica of the original sleeve artwork. Recorded during Blur’s rapid rise in popularity and tabloid recognition, the third and final chapter in what was referred to as the band’s “life trilogy” sees the band present a dark and lavish look at the modern world, populated by night-shift cab drivers, factory workers, lottery players and swinging couples. Justly awarded five star reviews upon its release in 1995, The Great Escape features Blur’s first #1 single, “Country House” and the beautiful “The Universal.”
