The Pretenders Packed! on 180g Import LP
In correlation with the release of The Pretenders' Vinyl Collection 1979-1999, Demon Records is offering eight individual vinyl issues of the band's albums from the same period including Pretenders (1980), Pretenders II (1981), Learning to Crawl (1984), Get Close (1986), Packed! (1990), Last of the Independents (1994), The Isle of View (2LP) (1995) and Viva El Amor! (1999).
The Isle Of View and Viva El Amor! are appearing on the vinyl format for the first time. All of the albums were cut from the latest digital remasters and are pressed on high-quality 180-gram heavyweight black vinyl.
Produced by Mitchell Froom, the Pretenders' fifth album Packed! appeared in May 1990 with Billy Bremner back on lead guitar. Only two singles were issued from the album – "Never Do That" and "Sense Of Purpose" - neither of which managed to chart. Additional standouts include a cover of Jimi Hendrix's "May This Be Love" and the Chrissie Hynde/Johnny Marr collaboration "When Will I See You."
