Alabama Shakes – Boys & Girls / Sounds & Color Bundle (Deluxe Bundle)

10 year anniversary edition of the debut record by Alabama Shakes. Boys & Girls has sold over 1 millions copies, was nominated for multiple Grammys and brought the band international acclaim. It is repackaged here in a foil-board gatefold jacket with new photos and a bonus radio session of 12 raw and explosive tracks from KCRW, recorded in January 2012 just as the band were ready to be unleashed.

Deluxe edition of the groundbreaking, genre-defying second album by Alabama Shakes. Certified gold and the winner of four Grammys, Rolling Stone called “Sound & Color” a “weirder, woozier, fiercer and sexier record than their debut in nearly every way.” This repackaged set features revised artwork, new photos, and seven bonus tracks pulled from unreleased studio material, b-sides and live songs cut at the world renowned Capitol Records Studio A.

Repackaged in a foil-board gatefold jacket with new, unreleased photos, Boys & Girls 10 Year Anniversary Deluxe Edition contains the album’s original 11 songs plus an additional 11 tracks from the band’s explosive live performance on KCRW’s “Morning Becomes Eclectic,” which aired in the months leading up to the album’s release. Listen to Alabama Shakes’ ferocious live version of “Always Alright” – a non-album track that appeared on the soundtrack for the Oscar-nominated film Silver Linings Playbook and earned a GRAMMY nomination.

Alabama Shakes – comprising singer/guitarist Brittany Howard, guitarist Heath Fogg, bassist Zac Cockrell, and drummer Steve Johnson – recorded Boys & Girls in Nashville, funding the sessions with their day jobs (Howard worked as a mail carrier, while Johnson served as a night watchman at a nuclear power plant) and nighttime gigs, playing James Brown and AC/DC covers in dive bars.
