Electric (Blue Vinyl)

Brand new 180 gram album pressed in Blue vinyl housed in a gatefold cover..

In 1985, THE CULT enjoyed breakthrough success with the single "She Sells Sanctuary" and the album "Love", establishing themselves as a new breed of alternative rock band. When it came to recording a follow-up, the band booked into The Manor studios in Oxfordshire with Steve Brown again producing the album. By the end of October 1986, the album was recorded, the masters assembled and it was given the title "Peace". However, the band weren't happy with the final results, which seemed too polished. Appreciating the rawness of RUN-D.M.C.'s "Walk This Way", the band contacted producer Rick Rubin to remix the lead track, "Love Removal Machine". Rubin agreed to work with the band but only on condition that the track was entirely re-recorded. The result was a sparse, dry, riffing version that captured the sonic excitement the band were looking for. Enthused by the results, the decision was made to abandon the expensive "Peace" recordings and re-record the entire album in New York with Rick Rubin. The new tracks would become THE CULT's third album, re-titled "Electric", and a multi-million seller.
