Elektrafied- The Elektra Years 1979-1982

Shoes were one of the great undervalued power pop bands of the late '70s and early '80s. We've bleated long enough in these pages about their early lo-fi records so it's time to find out what became of Shoes after they signed to a major label. Well they carried on making robust but tuneful power-pop - a little shiner perhaps with bigger production values but still as enchanting. This box set is the Shoes fan's wet dream taking in their three albums for Elektra plus countless demos, alternate takes and outtakes.

Black Vinyl Shoes

Will you look at this thing. Shoes were THE best late 70's power pop act if you ask me. They were lo-fi before lo-fi was a thing, they had dreamy melodies to die for and they were so damn handsome. Black Vinyl Shoes is hands down their best record but now it's even better as it contains 2CDs of extra stuff from their earlier even more homespun records. It's all the pop majesty you will ever need.
