Limited Edition Colour Vinyl Bundle of Peter Murphy's solo albums released on Beggars Banquet.

Includes:

Peter’s debut solo album, Should The World Fail To Fall Apart, released in 1986, was produced by Ivo Watts-Russell. A review of the album around its original release by Melody Maker declared “the man with everything to prove has just proved everything”. Pressed on blue vinyl

Love Hysteria was produced by Simon Rogers, who at the time was also playing with The Fall. It contains eight songs written by Peter with Paul Statham, plus a cover of Iggy Pop’s “Funtime”. Record Collector said that the album’s songs “All Night Long, Indigo Eyes, Dragnet Drag and Blind Sublime managed to combine direct rock power with Murphy’s vocal gymnastics and imaginative way with lyrics.” Pressed on indigo vinyl

Peter’s third solo album saw him break wide open with the his biggest hit “Cuts You Up” which is often included in lists of the greatest alternative singles. Propelling him into mainstream stardom, Deep also had two additional fantastic charting singles - “The Line Between the Devil’s Teeth (And That Which Cannot Be Repeat)”, “Cuts You Up” and “A Strange Kind of Love”. Again produced by Simon Rogers, the critically acclaimed album is still a fan favorite. Pressed on clear vinyl

The fourth Peter Murphy album Holy Smoke contained the single “The Sweetest Drop” which made it onto the modern rock charts. It was an elegant follow up to Deep with crisp production by Mike Thorne. As written in the original press release for the album, “You can’t pin down Holy Smoke, it curls and eddies in white and blue swirls, drawing a series of patterns on the brain, but just when an image begins to come into focus, the music mutates into something hypnotically new”. Pressed on smoky vinyl

His last solo album for Beggars, Cascade came after a time of change for Peter Murphy. He had dissolved his longtime backing band and moved to Turkey with his family. After a year of soul-searching and re-discovery, the songs flowed. He said “It confirmed my belief that writing – like painting or any art form – comes from a very silent place that’s not dependent on outside stimulus. It was like rediscovering the initial innocence and purity that’s there when you join your first band.” The album was written with Paul Statham and produced by Pascal Gabriel. It also contains guitar work by noted artist Michael Brook. Double LP, pressed on scarlet vinyl

This album of rarities was curated by Andrew Brooksbank and Stephen Webbon with Peter Murphy’s guidance. It contains 10 rare tracks that are demo versions, remixes and edits. Pressed on gold vinyl
