"High on the emotional responses to their first gigs for a decade, a re-energised Doves follow their live return by announcing numbered limited edition, two-disc, coloured vinyl packages of their first three albums. Released on Friday 31 May 2019 on UMC / Virgin EMI, the Mercury Award-nominated brace of debut album, Lost Souls and follow up, The Last Broadcast join third studio album, the chart-scaling Some Cities in the triumvirate of vital reissues, all with original artwork and sleeve notes. Download codes included. Lost Souls, repressed on double grey vinyl, was first released in April 2000 with traceable links to the band's former identity as dance hit makers Sub Sub, their self-enforced, creative isolation in shady, post-industrial Ancoats, Manchester and the decisive 1996 studio fire that set the coordinates for the trio's reinvention as Doves. Freed of the past by unfortunate circumstance, it was chance to make the album they'd always hoped to make. Only three of the album's twelve tracks come in under four minutes, with the long form opulence of singles, The Cedar Room and Sea Song captivating listeners with their cinematic drama, swelling with climbing instrumentation with every passing second and captivating the listener to the very last note. The chance of climbing higher still, after delivering a seemingly unsurpassable debut, The Last Broadcast, reissued on double orange vinyl, was released almost exactly two years after Lost Souls, in April 2002. Recorded over a year in myriad studio settings, including famously setting up beneath a motorway flyover for M62 Song, the album rushed straight to number one in the UK Albums Chart, preceded the week before by the chiming, anthemic brilliance of pummelling Top 3 lead single, There Goes The Fear. It took a gap of almost three years for third album, Some Cities to emerge in February 2005. Reissued on double white vinyl, the album was co-produced by the band and Ben Hillier in typically nomadic fashion, completing sessions in Manchester, Liverpool, London and a former Benedictine Monastery in the Scottish Highlands. As a statement of intent, lead single, Black and White Town stopped traffic; a rug-cutting stomp that recalled the talc-dusted, amphetamine rush of the northern soul, only to be followed by the incisive Snowden, with Jez William's ethereal guitar accents and ‘that' melodramatic wall of strings as its returning motif.
