New - Alabama Shakes - Boys & Girls (10 Year Anniversary) - 2xLP
10 Year Anniversary Edition Colored Vinyl 2LP Reissue with Bonus Live Set Recorded for KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic in January 2012; Housed in a Foil-Board Gatefold Jacket with New Photos
Alabama Shakes' Grammy-nominated 2012 debut Boys & Girls marked the arrival of a major new rock 'n' roll band. Peaking at No. 6 on the U.S. Billboard 200 and No. 3 on the UK Albums Chart, it serves up a vibrant fusion of swampy, dirty Southern rock, blues and soul delivered with punk rock fervor.
From the highly addictive hit single "Hold On" to stompers like "Rise to the Sun" and the heartrending title cut, the LP demonstrates the sense of groove and space the band learned from their idols, along with a blistering force and emotional expression that is stylistically all their own. "A thunderbolt dressed in blue jeans with music that's aching when it's slow and growling and whooping when it's fast" (New York Times).
The Platinum-certified affair receives a 10 Year Anniversary Edition colored vinyl 2LP reissue which finds the original album augmented by a raw and explosive live set recorded for KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic in January 2012, just as the band were ready to be unleashed. Housed in a foil-board gatefold jacket with new photos.
