Ocean Colour Scene – 21

| On 18, Oct 2010

21 years and still rocking, Ocean Colour Scene celebrate the remarkable anniversary with a 4 CDs Box Set which is a must have for any fan of the band and for those nostalgic of the great glories of Britpop.

Each CD covers a specific era, framing a particular phase of the band glorious career (tracklist below) and offers also previously unreleased versions and out-takes, such as Yesterday Today, Fly Me, Dreams (in an amazing demo version), I am the news (new version) and the brand new track 21, as well as fans favourites.

Usually a band releases such a box set when they decide to call it a day, but I honestly hope that 21 is just a moment of true celebration, of looking back before starting afresh with more Ocean Colour Scene greatness.
