Released in April 1987, the Happy Mondays debut album was a perfect snapshot of a very different kind of pop culture coming from beyond the fringes. It would be an underground album but a game changer. Produced by Velvet Underground legend, John Cale, this was the accidental sound track for the endless housing estates sailing away from Manchester City centre and into Salford-perfectly captured by this gang of misfits. With artwork lovingly replicated by original Manchester designers Central Station Design, this album is on vinyl for the first time since it’s original release. Featured the singles Tart Tart and 24 Hour Party People. Cut from the master tapes. Limited edition sleeve: text printed on plastic outer sleeve. No text on card front cover. This mimicks the original first 1000 Ltd. Edition released in 87.
