You've Changed Records Releases Constantines' Shine A Light Anniversary LP on June 10th

Press release provided by Pigeon Row

You’ve Changed Records is very happy to announce the release of the special deluxe 11th anniversary reissue of the Constantines' Shine A Light LP on Tuesday, June 10th.

Named one of the top 200 records of the 2000s by Pitchfork and often cited as one of the best Canadian records ever, this legendary album has been out of print since 2007.

A new vinyl master has been cut for the reissue, and the original gatefold artwork from the 2003 release has been re-photographed to reflect its age and the past 11 years of neglect in dank basements. We’re all a little rougher around the edges.

This deluxe LP is packaged with a bonus 7” containing 3 B-sides from the time of Shine A Light:

Thank You For Sending Me An Angel – a cover of the Talking Heads song recorded during the Shine A Light sessions.

I Am A Raw Youth – a live recording of a song by Royal City from a live 2003 CBC session. 

Hotline Operator (2003) –a distinct piece from the song included on the Constantines 2005 LP Tournament of Hearts with which it shares a name. Some might call this a jam; some might call it a trip; it is certainly “out”.  In any event it displays an inclination towards free musical expression not always apparent from The Constantines recorded output, but well known from parts of their legendary live shows. Recorded in a fog during the 2003 sessions for Shine A Light.

This is the first ever vinyl pressing for these B-sides. 

The Constantines will be performing their first shows in 4 years in 2014, including: 

June 8th – Field Trip, Toronto, ON
Aug 3rd – SappyFest, Sackville, NB
Aug 22nd – Peterborough Folk Festival, Peterborough, ON
Aug 23rd- Arboretum Festival, Ottawa, ON
