Harvey, P.J.: Dry Demos LP
Critically lauded both on release in March of 1992 and retrospectively, PJ Harvey's seminal debut album Dry was recorded at The Ice House in Yeovil and features the singles "Dress" and "Sheela-Na-Gig." Dry saw Harvey burst onto the global stage to begin her unique path. The Los Angeles Times' Robert Hilburn described the record as "... a seductive calling card that signals the arrival of an extraordinary new artist." NME wrote, "Polly dredges these sounds from the pit of her dissected soul and drags them out of her mouth with clenched fists," while Pitchfork said, "On her debut, Polly Jean Harvey matched Patti Smith's incandescence with Bessie Smith's lasciviousness, outplayed everyone on the British indie circuit, and became an instant star." Released in correlation with a new 2020 reissue of Dry is this 11 track collection of album demos, available for the first time since 1992, and previously unreleased as a standalone album. Features brand new artwork with previously unseen photos by Maria Mochnacz.
