Live - Mental Jewelry
A Sneak Peak...
An album that joins the Class of 1991 !! Although it is not as famous as many of the albums that belong to this class, it is a significant album for the band itself !!
On December 31, 1991, Live released their debut album. Why it is the debut album???
The band started out as "Public Affection" and released their first album "The Death of a Dictionary" in 1989. In 1990 the band released the EP "Divided Mind, Divided Planet" and only in June 1991 the band was renamed "Live", with the first material released by the band under that name being the EP "Four Songs" which was released in September 1991.
Its first full-length studio album under the name Live was released on the last day of 1991 and was called "Mental Jewelry". The album was mostly inspired by the Indian philosopher Jiddu Krishnamurti and the first single from the album "Operation Spirit" was also accompanied by a video clip, recorded when the band's name was Public Affection.
In June 2017, the album was reissued, marking its 25th anniversary. The album contained two CDs, one CD with all the songs from the album + tracks that did not enter the album and a second CD with live performances of the album's songs that took place at the Roxy Club in 1992.
Three years after this album, Live returns with the album that will define its future, the album "Throwing Copper". It's breakthrough album which is also its best and most successful album. An album that is considered one of the first post-grunge works.
