PJ Harvey reissuing her entire catalog on vinyl with demos (listen to “Sheela-Na-Gig” demo)
Here's some good news: PJ Harvey will reissue her entire catalog on vinyl over the next 12 months. With each one there will be a "demos" album as well, featuring "demo versions of each album track, available for the first time as a complete stand-alone alone collection."
The first of those is Harvey's classic 1992 debut album, Dry, which will be out July 24. The Dry reissue was remastered by the original producer “Head” and has been replicated to the original version as much as possible. The Dry Demos features a full-color inner sleeve with three never-before-seen photos. You can pre-order as a two-LP bundle or buy separately.
You can listen to the "Sheela-Na-Gig" demo, and stream the original Dry album, below.
Initial original pressings of Dry came with a bonus disc of demos and the used copies of the vinyl of that fetch for over $200 these days on Discogs.
Stay tuned for details on the reissues of the rest of her catalog.
