The Libertines (hmv Exclusive) the 1921 Centenary Edition Transparent Red 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!
If the arrival of The Libertines and their debut album Up the Bracket had been largely an underground, word-of-mouth success fuelled by chaotic live shows and the precocious songwriting talents of the band’s dual frontmen, by the time of their self-titled follow-up they had become one of the most talked about British bands in years, propelling The Libertines straight to the top of the UK Album Chart on its release in 2004.
The band would create just one more album together before imploding as quickly as they had burst onto the scene, but their finest hour returns to vinyl in July as part of our centenary line-up with a new and exclusive reissue pressed on transparent red vinyl and limited to only 500 copies.
