Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds 'The Good Son' LP
• Released in 1990, ‘The Good Son’ is the sixth album by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds.
• ‘The Weeping Song’ and ‘The Ship Song’ have now become firm fan favourites. ‘Foi Na Cruz’ is based partly upon the traditional Brazilian Protestant hymn of the same title. The title translates roughly as ‘It Happened On The Cross’.
• Cave later said, “I guess ‘The Good Son’ is some kind of reflection of the way I felt early on in Brazil. I was quite happy there. I was in love and the first year or two was good. The problem I found was... in order to survive you have to adopt their attitudes towards everything, which are kind of blinkered.”
• Heavyweight 180g 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.
