So here’s how it went down - Primal Scream release Screamadelica in 1991. It's a barnstorming success and wins the band the inaugural Mercury Prize. Bobby Gillespie et al then decamp to the southern states of the U.S.A. to record follow-up Give Out But Don’t Give Up with the Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section and producer Tom Dowd. However, they subsequently decide that the takes aren’t up to much and re-do the whole thing when they get back to the U.K.
Now they’ve changed their mind and deigned that the originals are, in fact, good enough to go public. Might be fun to cop this one and the other tapes and see which one you prefer.
