More Info:

Limited orange colored vinyl LP pressing. A Certain Ratio's debut release, The Graveyard And The Ballroom, originally came out on Factory Records in 1980 and was reissued in 2017 as part of a new partnership with Mute. After this reissue of the fan favorite record quickly sold out, a new edition of the album will be released as part of Mute's 40th anti-versary celebrations, MUTE 4.0 (1978 TOMORROW) and will be available on colored vinyl with colored PVC sleeve. Fully showcasing A Certain Ratio's legendary mix of angular, bass heavy post-punk, The Graveyard And The Ballroom has been a collectors' item ever since it's initial release on cassette at the dawn of the '80s. Produced by Martin Hannett, it contains 14 tracks: 7 demo songs from a session recorded at Graveyard Studios in September 1979 and 7 songs from a gig at the Electric Ballroom in October 1979. The album captures A Certain Ratio at their best - raw, dark and funky and contains early versions of future classics like "Do The Du" and "Flight."
