BBC Four - Primal Scream: The Lost Memphis Tapes

Visit external resource

The sessions recorded by the band in Memphis with the legendary record producer Tom Dowd, along with the Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section musicians Roger Hawkins, drums, and David Hood, bass, did not make the light of day, because some of the mixes were not suitable in the musical climate at the time.

A great watch telling an unlikely, touching and at times hilarious story of how the Glasgow band temporarily escaped the madness of the early 90’s scene for Memphis to record an album which was out of step with the time and only revealed its true quality with the benefit of hindsight and maturity.

The production on The Memphis Sessions sounded absolutely amazing and there are some great vinyl mastering scenes for those – like myself – who are into that kind of thing!

On the strength of this, I think Clair and I will grab a copy of the record.
