We are dedicating this week to the Creation Records era the wonderful band Felt, whose records were reissued last week. We start with what is easily their masterpiece, a 1986 album that should have been starting point, but unfortunately proved to be their apex. It’s a stunning album that’s as fresh now as it was three decades ago.
