Reissue on vinyl of the first collaboration album between PJ Harvey and John Parish - Dance Hall At Louse Point. Produced by Parish and Harvey, and originally released in September 1996, Dance Hall At Louse Point features the single "That Was My Veil". Reissue is faithful to the original recording with vinyl cutting by Jason Mitchell at Loud Mastering, overseen by John Parish.
Before the dust had settled on her breakout 1995 album To Bring You My Love, PJ Harvey returned with a new album - this time, a raw, blues-forward collaboration with friend and former bandmate John Parish. Apparently inspired by some music that Parish had written for a play, Harvey asked her friend to write her some music in a similar vein. What he presented her with was tapes of minimalist rock with a serrated edge to which she added lyrics of romantic and emotional tumult, and vocal turns that could either summon an armada of ships from across the ocean or one sailor to her bedchamber. Louse Point has been somewhat forgotten in the wake of the work that Harvey has done since, but this re-release, pressed to wax as part of an ongoing vinyl reissue campaign of the artist's work, could help correct the record on its place in her history. It deserves to be spoken about in the same breathless terms that most folks reserve for the rest of her spotless discography.
