The Blue Nile – Hats, round 2, this time Remastered!

Saturday 25th January, 12pm - 5pm ** EXTRA SESSION ADDED 11am **

The Blue Nile Hats

It’s been a long time coming – 35 years in fact – but seminal Scottish artists The Blue Nile have remastered their first three albums for release on 180-gram vinyl. We think that’s reason enough to celebrate, throw in the fact that Hats was 30 years in November and  the fact that it’s Burns Night, and we have grounds for a full-blown vinyl party!

1984’s debut A Walk Across the Rooftops (the very first release on Linn Records), 1989’s masterpiece Hats and 1996’s Peace at Last have been remastered by the band’s longtime collaborator and Linn’s pro-audio partner, Calum Malcolm. The re-issues are pressed on 180-gram vinyl and have now arrived after a slight delay to the proposed launch date.

We will be playing the remastered Hats in full on our reference Linn Sondek LP12 system in our downstairs demo room on Saturday 25th January for anyone who’d like to hear.
