“The boy Gedge has written some of the best love songs of the ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll’ era. You may dispute this but I’m right and you’re wrong!” – John Peel
The Wedding Present will join BBC 6music host Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy to celebrate National Album Day on Saturday October 12th 2019 with a look back at their debut album George Best, discussing their early inspirations and the lasting impact of the album. This will be followed by a full album playback on a world class audiophile sound system. Then we have an exclusive live 20 minute acoustic performance from David followed by a Q&A with the audience.
Championed by BBC Radio One’s John Peel and successive early evening DJs (and originally released on their own Reception Records) it will be precisely thirty-two years to the day that George Best was originally released. The new version will be available as a limited edition green vinyl LP comprising the original twelve tracks and a CD which will consist of a further eleven non-album tracks from the same era.
