Hailing from Heston in West London, The Bluetones (Scott Morriss – bass, Eds Chesters – drums, Adam Devlin – guitars, and Mark Morriss – vocals) arrived on the scene in 1995 with their debut single “Are You Blue Or Are You Blind?”. They followed this up with “Bluetonic” and then “Slight Return”, which reached # 2 on the UK singles chart. The debut album “Expecting To Fly” was released in February 1996, and went straight to # 1.

This 3 LP box set contains the original 1996 album, a 12 track LP of non-album A- and B-sides, as well as the collection of pre-fame demos “The Early Garage Years”. The box also contains the 12 x 12 booklet from the original limited edition sleeve, as well as a note by 6Music DJ Steve Lamacq. 

The three LPs are pressed on 180 gram blue vinyl.
