60ft Dolls - The Big 3 2CD
60ft Dolls are one of the most underrated of the Cool Cymru bands. They spearheaded the Newport scene of the 1990s, were championed by Steve Lamacq and soon signed to Indolent Records following a couple of Rough Trade singles and support slots for Oasis, Elastica and Dinosaur Jr.
"The Big 3" was released in 1996 to strong reviews and made the Best Of The Year lists in the NME, The Guardian, New York Times and was named in 2003 by Mojo as one of the Top 12 Britpop Albums Of All Time. It features the singles Happy Shopper, White Knuckle Ride, Pig Valentine, Stay and their Top 40 hit Talk To Me.
This 2CD expanded edition includes the original album together with the best of their b-sides as chosen by the band. Also included is their session for John Peel which is listed in the Best Peel Sessions Of All Time.
