'LIVE 1987' collects the first two of The Wedding Present's popular "Live Tapes"; cassettes that the band sold at gigs and through their fanzine in the late 80's. The recordings were unavailable anywhere else. Fans eagerly collected them and the first two tapes quickly became very rare, especially as they include encores, which the band hasn't done since 1987.
This is the first official 'live' release by The Wedding Present and features live versions of ten songs from their classic debut album 'George Best'.
The two-disc set comes with sleeve notes written by The Wedding Present's original drummer, Shaun Charman, who was the main archivist at the time and recorded the original live tapes for the band.
