TVD Radar: Shed Seven, A Maximum High 25th anniversary 3LP box set in stores now

VIA PRESS RELEASE | Originally released on 1st April 1996, A Maximum High is Shed Seven’s crowning recorded achievement to date, charting at number 8 and remaining on the Official UK Album Charts for a triumphant 37 weeks.

The record spawned five hit singles: ‘Where Have You Been Tonight?’, ‘Getting Better’, ‘Going For Gold’, ‘Bully Boy’ and ‘On Standby’, with the York band making appearances on Top Of The Pops no less than four different times during a momentous year. In 2021, to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of A Maximum High, Shed Seven are proud to release two new versions of their magnum opus.

A Maximum High 25th Anniversary 3LP is a Bowling Ball Coloured triple vinyl reimagining of the album’s long-out-of-print Special Edition CD, newly remastered at Abbey Road. The Special Edition CD was originally released following the album’s final single on September 16th 1996, fortifying the record with a bonus CD featuring all the band’s 1994-1996 B-sides along with two newly recorded tracks. A Maximum High 25th Anniversary 3LP’s artwork has been faithfully reproduced from the exact Special Edition CD’s layout.

Also available to pre-order is the A Maximum High 25th Anniversary Box Set, which includes the A Maximum High 25th Anniversary 3LP, In Colour – Shed Seven Live At The Hanover Grand LP, Max-HiRangeDemonstration Tape CD, an exclusive signed art print and A Maximum High UK tour laminate, all in one lidded box.

In Colour captures Shed Seven’s legendary concert at The Hanover Grand on 30th January 1996, the London show of a tour to promote the release of the single ‘Getter Better’. With a setlist that included songs from the previous album Change Giver plus then-new material and B-sides, the concert recording is a timely chance to hear songs from A Maximum High make their live debut. While tracks from this concert have previously appeared as B-sides on the single of ‘Bully Boy’, for this release the band have reunited with Chris Sheldon, the producer of A Maximum High, to create a new mix of the concert from the source master tapes, resulting in seven previously unreleased tracks.

Max-HiRangeDemonstration Tape is an exclusive CD featuring previously unheard demos, instrumentals and acoustic tracks, all taken from the 1995/1996 A Maximum High era.

Alongside the three new music formats, A Maximum High 25th Anniversary Box Set includes an exclusive art print signed by the band and A Maximum High UK tour laminate, all in one custom lidded box; the ultimate collector’s keepsake of a classic Shed Seven album.

Regarding the upcoming release Shed Seven frontman Rick Witter said: “It’s been great revisiting the album for this special 25th Anniversary release. As well as reminiscing about those heady days in the mid ’90s it’s also great to hear the album remastered. The special edition B-side collection was only ever available on CD back in the day so it’s nice to be able to finally make it available on vinyl. It’s time to immerse yourself in A 2021 Maximum High.”

A Maximum High 25th Anniversary Box Set and A Maximum High 25th Anniversary 3LP are available to pre-order from https://store.shedseven.com for release on November 26th 2021 via Townsend Music. The direct to consumer specialist expanded its offerings in August 2021, with a new ‘D2C Plus’ service, signing select artists, labels and other rights-holders to bring a range of products from conception to market, including studio albums, a series of exclusive vinyl deluxe edition live albums during lockdown (Shed Seven, James, Bryan Ferry, Embrace, Supergrass), merchandise and their first coffee table book; the So Young: Suede 1991 – 1993. A number of artists having recently signed up to D2C Plus campaigns, including Sea Power, Shaun Ryder, Feeder, Kyle Falconer, Zuzu and The Byson Family, alongside labels Hacienda Records and Alan McGee’s It’s Creation Baby.

Shed Seven follow the 25th anniversary release with a 23-date tour performing all their greatest hits and fan favourites. Since returning to the live circuit in 2007, the band have continued to sell out shows across the UK including their first ever headline arena date at Leeds First Direct Arena in 2019 where they performed to a 10,000 strong sold-out crowd.
