Blur ‎– Leisure

Notes:
The debut album from Blur. Three singles (for four songs) were issued from the album: "She's So High" / "I Know", "There's No Other Way", and "Bang".

The tracklist differs from country to country in two respects: The original US and Japan issuings included the more direct and danceable song "I Know" instead of the slow, arty song "Sing", and had a different running order.

Sounds absolutely stunning. Everything is well separated, crisp and clear. It's really punchy and crankable as well. Recommended.

My friend bought this for me in HK for 160 HKD - I have yet to listen to this but beautiful turquoise vinyl.

Sound quality isn't the best thanks to a weird looking Parlophone pressing. This is just on the blue vinyl. The heavy 180g reissues all sound much better and have less surface noise than this release. I might have gotten a dud but even after a wash this record pops too much.

Talking to the chap in my local shop, he said he couldn't get any word on the actual number of these, any ideas anyone?

I believe there are two versions of FOODLPX6. One from 2012 by EMI with sticker on the front reading:

"The remastered special edition LP
180 gram vinyl
Includes a code to download the album as high quality MP3
To unlock extra blur bonus content visit www.blur.co.uk/bonus
blur21
FOODLPX6"

and one released by Parlophone Records Ltd. This one does not have a sticker on the front.
They appear to be different versions. I am not sure if this version has a download code because it is still sealed.

Just Gazing at Their Shoes
Writing their debut Leisure Blur aspired to be shoegazing kings and painstakingly followed in the footsteps of My Bloody Valentine and early Jesus and Mary Chain of Psychocandy epoch. Graham Coxon thoroughly trampled guitar pedals gazing under his feet, trying to squeeze out maximum of fuzzy guitar noise and Damon Albarn provided vocals in plaintive, complaining voice and some keyboard background. Having some practice in sharpening irony in which he later became a master Albarn sings: "Bang goes another year in and out of one ear" but unlike this song proposed Blur came into one ear and stayed there.

No download code with my copy. Presumably it was attached only by a certain time.
