2 LP VERSION

Following the huge acclaim earlier this year for Matt Berry's eighth studio album The Blue Elephant, on 26th November Acid Jazz Records will release Gather Up, a compilation album encompassing the singular musical adventures this extraordinary musician has taken over the past decade, offering a revelatory and fascinating insight into the working process of a genuine musical maverick and sonic explorer.
Over 10 years with Acid Jazz Records Berry has released nine incredibly diverse albums (including one live album). From the tangled-folk rock thickets of Witchazel and Kill The Wolf (which features the song from which this box gets its name), to the out-there explorations of Music For Insomniacs or TV Themes' retro-kitsch delights, through the soul power in Matt Berry & The Maypoles Live or the twilight grooves of The Small Hours to the classic pedal-steel songwriting of Phantom Birds and the smorgasbord of psychedelic sounds on The Blue Elephant, Berry's journey has produced a feast for the ears that twists and turns down more unexpected avenues than most artists could manage over several careers. 
Gather Up pulls together an excellent 21-track career spanning collection expertly compiled by Berry, available as a separate, standalone release on 2LP or single CD, including non-album tracks such as ‘Snuff Box Theme'. No easy achievement considering the sheer breadth, diversity and volume of his exceptional musical output

The book included in both formats has an extended essay by Chris Catchpole which review Matt's musical career and an exclusive set of photo images culled from the archive of Matt's long time photographic collaborator Ben Meadows.
