Live - Throwing Copper 2LP
25th Anniversary Vinyl 2LP Reissue featuring the Original Ablum Plus Three Bonus Tracks!
Initially released in April 1994, Throwing Copper cemented Live's position as one of the most instrumentally powerful and lyrically impactful bands of the modern alternative-rock era. Throwing Copper, which topped the Billboard 200 Albums chart a year after its initial release, also features a pair of No. 1 Modern Rock singles ("Lightning Crashes," "Selling The Drama") and has since been certified 8x multiplatinum by the RIAA, having sold over 8 million copies.
Produced by Jerry Harrison (Talking Heads) and recorded at Pachyderm Recording Studios in Cannon Falls, MN, Throwing Copper built upon the earnest sonic template the tight-knit four-piece band from York, PA established with their compelling 1991 debut album, Mental Jewelry. From the anthemic manifesto of "Selling the Drama" to the fervent declaration of "I Alone" to the unrelenting charge of "All Over You" to the emotional-rollercoaster journey of the epic "Lightning Crashes," Throwing Copper handily reinforced Live's drive to connect with their ever-expanding audience in as many ways as possible.
Frontman Ed Kowalczyk humbly recognizes how Throwing Copper continues to elicit indelible, deep-rooted feelings to this day, "The fact that these songs have become part of our fans' DNA – that this album still matters to them and there's still such an emotional connection – that is the real accomplishment. All of the other things are great, that there are all of these trophy moments to reminisce about. But at the end of the day, the process and the journey and the music transcend all of those."
