A Collection of Rarities and Non-Album Tracks!
2003's Dear Catastrophe Waitress ushered in a new chapter for Belle and Sebastian. Once a hushed bedroom indie project, the band re-emerged as a pop powerhouse. Subsequent albums, "The Life Pursuit" and "Write About Love" marked a newfound confidence in the Scottish collective, and with it, some of their best record and ticket sales to date, elevating Belle & Sebastian from cherished undergroundlings into masters of modern songcraft.
Third Eye Centre, like its predecessor "Push Barman To Open Old Wounds," collects fan-favorite B-sides from cherished albums and also serves as a documentary of a decade - in this case, Belle and Sebastian's second coming.
From the remixes of "I'm A Cuckoo" and "Your Cover's Blown" to soon-to-be-classics: "Blue Eyes of A Millionaire" and "Last Trip," this collection traces the band's growing interest in a mastery of classic rock, glam, disco and pop, all anchored by Stuart Murdoch's forever-intimate lyricism.
Third Eye Centre's collection of B-sides, collectibles & non-LP tracks is an indispensable entry into any Belle and Sebastian fan's stacks.
The 19 tracks are from the time around the three albums Dear Catastrophe Waitress (2003), The Life Pursuit (2006) and Write About Love (2010). Consider The Third Eye Centre the successor of sorts to Push Barman To Open Old Wounds (2005), which compiled earlier singles and EPs.
