"THE BOYS" Special Edition Splattered Vinyl release for RSD
By The Boys website, Apr 18 2018 10:27AM
The Boys self titled debut album is to be given a 1,000 copy limited edition splattered vinyl release on Saturday 21 April as part of the international Record Store Day (RSD). The Boys will headline Punk & Disorderly Festival on the same day to promote the album's release.
Originally released by NEMS on 23 September 1977 the album entered the UK charts at Number 50 in it's first week of release and the album sold out immediately and as a result slipped out of the charts the following week. RCA (who distributed NEMS) had initially delayed the release and didn't repress the album for several weeks as they concentrated on repressing Elvis Presley records following his untimely death the previous month.
Last FM: “The Boys made arguably one of the best LPs of the 70s with their self-titled first album and provided the template for superior Pop Punk before even the Buzzcocks had got out of first gear”.
