Set up by Jeff Barrett in the midst of the UK’s acid house revolution, Heavenly Recordings’ initial releases were a sign of the times. With Flowered Up, Saint Etienne and the late great Andrew Weatherall in their roster, the ‘90s at Heavenly kicked off with an up-tempo optimism, setting the tone for the upcoming decade.
Written and compiled by Heavenly’s own Robin Turner, the book has been lovingly designed by photographer, graphic designer and long-time friend of the label, Paul Kelly. Split into 30 vignettes, the book traces the landmark records, moments and characters of the label’s first three decades. Anecdotes and interviews are interspersed with rare backstage photos, album cover artwork, and paper scribblings from their London office.
