Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds 'Henry's Dream' LP
• ‘Henry’s Dream’, the seventh album by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, was released in April 1992. It remains a big favourite amongst Bad Seeds fans and is notable for Neil Young producer David Briggs’ ‘live-in-the-studio’ method. Cave and Mick Harvey re-mixed the album and it has a vague concept, with song narratives overlapping and / or sharing characters.
• ‘When I First Came To Town’ is based partly on Karen Dalton’s recording of the traditional song ‘Katy Cruel’.
• Cave later claimed the songs were heavily influenced by street beggars he saw in Brazil. “They’d get their acoustic guitars with one or two strings and bang away and make a racket that had no sense whatsoever. It was very violent and seemed to come straight out of the heart. Very unmusical.”
• Heavyweight 180gram vinyl.
• Vinyl transfer approval overseen by Mick Harvey in
Summer 2014 and cut at Abbey Road Studios.
• This edition, personally approved by Nick Cave, is finally available again on its original format.
• Includes download code.
