Contains exclusive, unreleased outakes & demos from Glasgow’s Park Lane Studio!


Features rare tracks from TEXAS, PRIMAL SCREAM, DEL AMITRI, BLUEBELLS, ALTERED IMAGES, GUN, DEACON BLUE, HIPSWAY, LOVE & MONEY and many others!

PARK LANE STUDIO in Glasgow was host to many young bands from 1980 onwards, many making their first recordings and still seeking a record deal. Some did become successful, and a vibrant scene soon developed centred around the studio. Now the studio archives have been prised open, and a treasure trove of fascinating and unreleased tapes discovered! This 80-min. album with 22 tracks offers a unique and broad insight into the whole history of that important Glasgow scene, the studio and the many interwoven bands that recorded there.
