CERTAIN RATIO - GRAVEYARD AND THE BALLROOM Vinyl LP
Limited white colored vinyl LP pressing. A Certain Ratio's debut release, The Graveyard And The Ballroom, originally came out on Factory Records in 1980. Fully showcasing A Certain Ratio's legendary mix of angular, bass heavy post-punk, The Graveyard And The Ballroom has been a collectors' item ever since it's initial release on cassette at the dawn of the '80s. Produced by Martin Hannett, it contains 14 tracks: 7 demo songs from a session recorded at Graveyard Studios in September 1979 and 7 songs from a gig at the Electric Ballroom in October 1979. The album captures A Certain Ratio at their best - raw, dark and funky and contains early versions of future classics like "Do The Du" and "Flight."
