Digital download of 'Parabolically Yours'

Late last year, Martin Crookall wrote about the just-launched Parabolically Yours PledgeMusic campaign. 

The Distractions: Parabolically Yours

Posted: December 9, 2014 in Soundtrack of a Lifetime

At long last, the Distractions collection project Parabolically Yours, is nearing availability.

It’s been a long time coming and it’s been curated with admirable care. It includes everything the band recorded, on 3 CDs and one high-quality vinyl album, and it’s full of alternate versions, live tracks and the later years recordings up till 2013. There’s also a 100+ page hardback book of information and pictures, plus there are different levels of extras, depending on your commitment. This is a one-time only, limited to 500 copies edition, and you can pledge to get your copy here and nowhere else. 

You’ll have to forgive me if I don’t sound as enthusiastic as I could, but as I’ve long since feared would be the case, I can’t afford it, so whilst I’m happy to plug it, it’s not going to do me any good.

Good luck, everyone.

Well, since then, as you can see above, HiddenMasters have come to an agreement with the masters holders, to be able to offer a mid-price digital download option. This option gets you FLAC or 320 kbps MP3 files of all 40 tracks in the 3CD + 1LP set. Pre-order this option here:
