Although a compilation album at heart, and an occasionally ragged one at that, this collection is nonetheless generally considered to be a definitive entry in the Joy Division catalog because of the previously-unreleased material that made its debut amongst its four sides. Arguably the most famous inclusion is “Ceremony,” which was performed precisely once in concert by Joy Division but went on to be known better as a New Order single, but there are a number of gems here, including a cover of The Velvet Underground’s “Sister Ray.”
To celebrate the 35th anniversary of “Love Will Tear Us Apart” on June 27th, Rhino is pleased to announce the re-issue of Still as a 2LP set on heavyweight 180-gram vinyl. Each design replicates the original in painstaking detail, including the gatefold covers used for Still and Substance. The music heard on the albums was remastered in 2007 when Rhino introduced expanded versions of the albums.
