In March 1998 Touch and Go Records released Ocean Songs, the 4th album by Australian trio The Dirty Three. In 2005 the band were joined onstage by Nick Cave (on piano) to perform the album in its entirety at ATP festival in New York; a show that since has developed into near mythic status.
Remastered for an enhanced listening experience, the boxset will feature 4 LPs pressed on coloured vinyl, new sleeve artwork from the guitarist Mick Turner, a pull-out poster and new band photos.
