Double album on 180 gram vinyl, with download card.

Sleeve notes:
"This is a collection of songs from throughout the twenty five years we’ve been a band. We initially wanted to mark this anniversary with a sort of ‘Best of The Frames’. We put together a few different versions, including a certain number of songs from each record and including more popular live and radio songs - but this felt forced and incongruous. After many conversations amongst ourselves we decided it should simply be a collection of our favourite tunes, songs we would be happy to put on a mix-tape for a friend. So, here it is, with no regard to what album is most or least represented. It’s a short collection of tunes we are proud of, some in slightly different versions from the original recordings, and one new song. This is not the sum of our career but maybe some of the songs where we felt we had broken through to a new place or gotten better as a band. We hope you like it….we hope you enjoy it."

written cheques,
lifted spirits,
lifted amps,
shared their art,
played their part,
and lent their ears

Fantastic record but the poor pressing caused damage to the sleeves. The center of the record is not cleanly cut and pierces the sleeve with a small circular cut. Sound quality seems excellent though.
