Absolutely (hmv Exclusive) the 1921 Centenary Edition Yellow Vinyl
This year marks a full century since the first hmv store opened its doors at 363 Oxford Street in London, and on July 24 we'll be celebrating our 100th birthday in style with a brand new and exclusive range of limited edition vinyl just for you...
As part of our birthday celebrations we're pleased to announce the new 1921 Centenary Edition range, for which we have carefully curated a selection of the finest albums and soundtracks from the last 100 years and had them specially pressed onto some beautiful coloured vinyl - all of which will be available exclusively in hmv stores on Saturday July 24 and from store.hmv.com at 4pm the same day. As ever, our exclusives will be available on a first come, first served basis... and when they're gone, they're gone!
Although most of the ska revivalist bands to emerge at the tail end of the 1970s sprang out of the Coventry-based 2 Tone Records, run by The Specials’ chief songwriter Jerry Dammers, the London-based Madness wound up being one of the genre’s most important bands, chalking up no fewer than eight Top 10 albums and a series of hit singles, including the chart-topping ‘House of Fun’.
They followed their 1979 debut LP One Step Beyond just a year later with 1980’s Absolutely, which includes among its tracklist one of their biggest hits in ‘Baggy Trousers, and their sophomore album joins our exclusive line-up in September with a new repress on yellow vinyl.
