The Durutti Column - Fidelity 2xLP
Label: Les Disques du Crepuscule
Release Date: January 17th, 2020
Limited edition of 1,000 on clear and blue vinyl.
Les Disques du Crepuscule presents the first ever vinyl release of Fidelity, the 1996 studio album by cult Manchester ensemble The Durutti Column. Originally released by Crepuscule on CD only in April 1996, Fidelity featured 10 tracks written and performed by Vini Reilly, with occasional guest vocals by Eley Rudge. In addition to Vini's trademark guitar stylings, the album showcased sleek electronic textures and programmed beats.
This 2019 vinyl re-master features two bonus tracks: "My Only Love" was originally released in 1995 on a covermount CD with a specialist guitar magazine, while experimental piece "The New Fidelity" was issued on a Portuguese compilation album from 1992 called Hare, Hunter, Field. Limited to just 1000 copies, this special double disc edition pressed in clear and blue vinyl features brand new cover artwork by Crepuscule design director Benoit Hennebert, based on a portrait by Vini Reilly of filmmaker Carol Morley.
