To celebrate the 30th anniversary of The La’s pivotal year, The Viper Label is pleased to release The La’s 1987. The band had already built up a fierce reputation during the two previous years taking Liverpool by storm but by the start of 1987 the band had a new line up and practice room- an old Stables next to Strawberry Fields, in which they could rehearse every day working on new songs and playing them later that same evening! It was an extremely creative time in which La’s classics:

There She Goes, Timeless Melody & Way Out were written and the standard La’s set, starting with Son of a Gun and ending with Looking Glass was formulated – eventually securing them a major recording contract and exposing them to the wider World.

Featured on this album are the legendary recordings from the Flying Picket (Trade Union Centre Venue- recorded on Pete Townsend old mixing desk) plus recordings made in Echo & the Bunnymen’s studio at the behest of the late Pete De Freitas who supervised over the session with ‘fifth’ Bunnyman the late Jake Brockman, also featured are outtakes from the Stables rehearsals and ‘live’ rarities.

This album is a must not just for La’s completists but for fans the world over and reveals a fresh and fertile period when the band were still white hot.

NOTE: In conjunction with it’s release, The Viper Label/ Redhouse Originals is also pleased to present an Photography exhibition of recently discovered La’s photos taken by photographer Jake Summerton during 1987.

The Florrie, Liverpool 14th September – 7th October, 2017.

Redhouse Originals Gallery, Harrogate 14th October – 28th October, 2017.

I like the idea of having something that isn't just the album on vinyl..

After reading Macefield's 2003 book I'm not going to assume any Viper releases have been approved and agreed to by Lee until I find out otherwise. (Late but just finished the book, first edition). In spite of what Badger had to say in his book about he and Lee having an agreement and what the split is, I don't have any way of knowing what is true. It bothers me that Tears In The Rain is on one of the albums as well. Sure, it's possible they did come to an understanding about some or all releases and things are better now.

The same goes for Universal. Knowing how Lee feels I find it hard to believe he would have signed off on collection releases with them. I just don't think I'll buy anything until I found out. The thought, possibility of Lee being taken advantage of actually has me livid. Last night I dreamed I tipped off a lawyer/solicitor to check it out.

The interviews that provided material for the book are 15 years plus now..

I assume you're making assumptions.. :D

Very few people would know where the working/personal relationship between Mavers and Badger is at.

Purchases made from the Universal label catalogue do result in payment to Mavers, in some form, eventually.

Liverpool Exhibition & Rarities Album Release

“An exhibition celebrating the 30 year anniversary of the first tour by seminal Liverpool band The La’s.”

In September this year legendary Liverpool record company The Viper Label and RedHouse Originals Gallery will present an exhibition of rare and unseen photographs documenting the first tour by The La’s. The exhibition coincides with the release of ‘The La’s 1987’; a compilation of unreleased studio recordings and live rarities, recorded in Liverpool in 1987.

These rare photographs were taken by friend of the band Jake Summerton, and recently re-discovered - having been being lost and found many times, before eventually turning up at Jake’s son’s house in Wales.

Guitarist Paul Hemmings: “Jake Summerton was one of the first people to take photos of The La’s. I remember him being a ball of energy. He knew he was capturing a magical time and had the eye to do it. I’m extremely pleased he is now getting the credit he so rightly deserves.”

The exhibition, which opens at The Florrie in September, will also include original handwritten lyrics, set-lists and ephemera, which will going on public display for the very first time. The collection then moves to RedHouse Originals, Harrogate in October.

‘The La’s - 1987’
15th September - 7th October 2017
Launch Party: Thursday 14th September
The Florrie
377 Mill St, Liverpool L8 4RF

I didn't realise The La's - Lost La's 1986-87 had a vinyl release, too. Did you pick this up when it was available?

No! Flew under my radar (or I wasn't interested in a vinyl release at the time, although I think I'd remember). That's the superior Viper release for me vs Breakloose.

Erm, what experience? Lee hasn't been involved in any of these releases - you're misinterpreting what you've read on that website.
