We are pleased to announce that Domino is to reissue five Palace albums on the 27th of February. The five albums reissued are: There is No-one What Will Take Care Of You (Palace Brothers, 1993), Days In The Wake (Palace Brothers, 1994), the mini album, Hope (Palace Songs, 1994), the Steve Albini-recorded Viva Last Blues (Palace Music, 1995) and the compilation, Lost Blues And Other Songs  (Palace Music, 1997).

PRE-ORDER ON LP OR CD HERE

All of the reissues will be available on LP, CD (in a mini ‘LP’ style pack) and digitally, except for Lost Blues And Other Songs which will be available on mini gatefold card CD pack and on double gatefold vinyl. The reissues will feature new artwork and packaging, with text written by Will Oldham.

Each Palace record features a different set of musicians and a revolving cast of contributors. Consequently each Palace album has a unique tone and atmosphere in which Oldham’s cracked voice and remarkable song writing are the constant, beguiling presence.
