During the '80s Felt cut ten albums and ten singles for the Cherry Red and Creation labels. A beautifully produced new reissue series from Cherry Red examines the work of what is considered one of the greatest underground groups of modern times. Following the release of Felt's first five albums in February 2018, the band's reissue campaign continues with the second half of their discography. These vinyl records, unavailable for many years, have been remastered and revisited by Lawrence Hayward, and are presented in deluxe gatefold sleeves.
Mayo Thompson recorded and produced six tracks for 1987's Poem of the River – two of these were replaced – the remaining four songs were reluctantly remixed by Robin Guthrie at Cocteau Twins new studio. Flash forward to 2017 and the return of the Felt archive – amongst the masters the original Mayo Thompson mixes came to light. Cherry Red has reinstated "She Lives By The Castle" – one of the poetic epics the album revolves around and here, now, at last is the most satisfying version of a quite damaged and bruised masterpiece.
