Fun Lovin’ Criminals just announced that they will be releasing a 20th anniversary collectors’ edition of their album, Come Find Yourself. The rerelease will be out on the 19th of February via Edsel label through Demon Music Group.
Available as a 3-CD expanded edition and collectors’ deluxe edition box set, the release features a plethora of rarities, live recordings, alternate mixes, and music more!
In celebration of the album’s 20th anniversary, Huey Morgan, Brian ‘Fast’ Leiser, and Frank Benbini have opened the archives to share with their fans, and will be playing the record from start to finish for the very first time on their world tour throughout 2016.
Along with the additional material on the release, the band have included a collection of their BBC sessions from the Come Find Yourself era, including sessions recorded as the famous Astoria venue in London. There also plenty of alternate versions of the songs, including instrumentals.
The collectors’ edition will come with a bonus alternate LP vinyl picture disc and a BBC Sessions 10” vinyl EP. A DVD completes the package rounding up a unique collection of footage from the time; including the original 1996 EPK shot in NY, a few TV performances from TOTP to Jools Holland’s Hootenanny, the original music videos including both versions of the ‘Scooby Snacks’ promo video, alongside a recent interview with Huey and Fast, giving a intimate and in depth perspective on this defining period.
“It’s a very unique record for the times, and remains so today – it’s not dated. It burned a path for crossing genres that we now take for granted,” says Huey Morgan (vox). “Looking back, it was a good start for a career in music that was uncompromising. You can tell listening to it, it was exactly the way we wanted it to be. There’s still a lot of love out there for ‘Come Find Yourself’.“
