180g Virgin Vinyl Featuring "Selling The Drama", "I Alone", "All Over You" & "Lightning Crashes." Includes 2 Bonus Tracks!

The 1994 release Throwing Copper was recorded at Pachyderm Recording Studio July - September 1993 and produced by Jerry Harrison of Talking Heads.

Live achieved worldwide success with this 1994 album which has sold eight million copies in the US. The group had a string of hit singles in the mid '90s including "Lightning Crashes" which stayed at the top of the Billboard Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart for 10 consecutive weeks.

"On Throwing Copper, Live tightened their sound, added crashing crescendos for dramatic effect, and injected some anger into their sound and songwriting. They also eased up a bit on the Eastern philosophy; the result is a more cohesive, memorable record overall, and quite an improvement from the sometimes overly precious Mental Jewelry. And for all of Mental Jewelry's ideologies, Throwing Copper is ultimately a more passionate and successful album, thanks to tracks like "I Alone," "Selling the Drama," and "All Over You," all of which received heavy radio play. The rebirth-themed "Lightning Crashes," the album's biggest hit, was written in memory of Barbara Lewis, a classmate who was killed by a drunk driver in 1993. Other standouts include the Kurt Cobain/Courtney Love-inspired "Stage," the apocalyptic "White, Discussion," the bass-driven, obsessive "Iris," and the dark "Dam at Otter Creek." Of course, Ed Kowalczyk couldn't resist throwing in a song like "T.B.D." (for the Tibetan Book of the Dead), based on Aldous Huxley's slow descent into death, aided by heroin. Its melodrama is a bit much, even for Live, and is just a sign of things to come on their next album, Secret Samadhi..." - Gina Boldman,
