Cast Release Deluxe Edition Of All Change

CAST ALL CHANGE – DELUXE EDITION 25TH OCTOBER 2010 On the 15th Anniversary of the release of their debut album, All Change and on the eve of a UK tour, by the newly-reformed classic line-up, comes the Deluxe Edition of All Change by Liverpool band, Cast.

This superb deluxe edition comes with a second CD, comprising the group’s barnstorming live set from Leeds in 1996 plus a selection of home demos made by the band’s lead vocalist and guitarist, John Power.

John Leckie who produced All Change says:

“There are some really great demos John did by himself in his bedroom. Songs like ‘Fine Time’ and ‘Back Of My Mind’ have got that magical quality The La’s Demos had. They feel very precious.”

Released in 1995, All Change was to become the fastest selling debut in Polydor’s history, outstripping The Who, Jimi Hendrix and The Jam. The album sold over one million copies and spawned four Top 20 singles: Alright, Sandstorm, Finetime and Walkaway. The stand-alone single, Flying, which reached Number 4 in the UK charts also features on this deluxe edition both in the form of the original studio recording as well as one of John’s earlier demos.
Cast aficionados will also be delighted by the inclusion of the outtake, All My Days, which has achieved near-mythical status amongst fans.

Originally the bass player with Merseyside band, The La’s, John Power started writing the material that would eventually become songs for Cast in the early 1990s. On leaving The La’s, he started putting together a group that by 1994 would feature the classic line-up of: John Power (guitar/vocals); Liam ‘Skin’ Tyson (lead guitar); Pete Wilkinson (bass) and Keith O’Neill (drums). The group split in 2001 but earlier this summer John Power announced that this very same line-up are getting together again with plans to work on new material and for a series of live UK date this November and December.
