For all of the brilliance of records like Bandwagonesque and the underrated Thirteen, at times Teenage Fanclub seemed little more than a showcase for the laconic melodic genius of Norman Blake - fairly or not, the songwriting contributions of bandmates Gerard Love and Raymond McGinley suffered mightily by comparison, mere filler when stacked alongside Blake-penned marvels like "The Concept" and "Norman.

Grand Prix is where Teenage Fanclub perfected everything that originally caused people to pay them any attention. The harmonies, the happy jangle, the sunny disposition were all in place, all delivered with more confidence than on any Fannies albums before or since, and the songwriting is frankly stunning. What follows those three tracks is just as good. As a matter of fact, the quality only slides on two of the album's 13 tracks, one of which is a throwaway experiment called "Hardcore/Ballad", which closes the album (and even that isn't bad, per se - just a little underwhelming). But by that point you basically don't care, because each one of the other 11 tracks is a sun-drenched pearl.

Songs From Northern Britain. After 2000’s Howdy!, an album of quiet triumphs-the off-kilter rhythm of Dumb Dumb Dumb, Cul De Sac ’s otherworldly drift-Teenage Fanclub started taking longer between records, retreating even further from the spotlight. They now seemed more willing to put the band on hold to gather new energy from collaborations and side projects.

Arguably the definitive Teenage Fanclub album and their most critically and commercially successful album. For many this album surpasses the genius of Bandwagonesque, something not many thought possible. The record firmly establishes the band's sound and their individual songwriting ability hits rarefied heights - Love's 'Sparky's Dream', Blake's 'Mellow Doubt' and McGinley's 'Verisimilitude', each a colossus in the Fanclub canon. Grand Prix is the sound of a band of considerable individual talent, and yet one that is greater than the sum.

Teenage Fanclub remain Britain’s foremost underachievers. Critically feted for 1991’s Bandwagonesque LP (famously chosen as Spin Magazine’s album of the year, beating Nirvana’s Nevermind), they’ve since steadfastly failed to break through into the mainstream. 1995’s Grand Prix remains their high watermark. Yet you’d struggle to find a more perfect pop album than this. From the opening rush of About You and Sparky’s Dream through to the slower, reflective Verisimilitude and Going Places, Grand Prix is an album about being hopelessly, head-over-heels in love. Musically the template is familiar, but lyrically it’s their most mature work to date with Gerard Love’s line in Don’t Look Back ( I’d steal a car/to drive you home ) remaining one of their best.

Tetaian
Definitely not a great sounding pressing. I played it through two sets of GOOD speakers (JBL L100 Century + Yamaha H-8 studio monitors), with two good turntables (Technics and Audio Technica) and there is definitely surface noise present. I can live with it as it's a cheaper alternative to an original pressing for the time being. Plain isn't exactly known for their quality so I knew what I was getting into when I bought it.
Morlunn
I must have lucked out. I picked this pressing up by accident thinking it was the Sony release but thought I'd give it a go. I'd already ordered, received and sent back the Sony release from Amazon due to a huge scratch on one side. Then the price went up so I waited to see if my local store would get it in. This is my first Plain release after avoiding them due to their poor reputation. However, I do have several releases that have been pressed at Rainbo (unfortunately). Firstly, the cover and inner are fine - they don't look like cheap reproductions. The vinyl is flat, clean and (gasp) pretty quiet (even quieter after a clean). Probably the best Rainbo pressing I've heard. They have to get one right occasionally don't they? The mastering is excellent too. Clear, detailed highs (but not bright) and clean lows. Vocals sound great. No sibilance to speak of. Did I just get lucky?
Celace
I play tested BOTH represses and own a 1st press and would highly recommend to AVOID BOTH represses. They are both trash especially the plain records. cash grabs by both labels. Disgusting considering this is a top 50 power pop album of all time. Embarrassing sound quality.
Tori Texer
Profoundly disagree, at least with the Sony. I haven't heard the Plain pressing but the Sony is great.
LØV€ YØỮ
Absolute nonsense. I own both the fist press and this repress and quite frankly you're simply wrong. This version sounds exactly as good as the first press, if not better. The band themselves have overseen all of the recent reissues, and have done a great job in doing so.
Whatever
Just listened all the way through to the Sony repress (overseen by the band, btw) and you're wrong. Great reissue of an impossible to find record.
Arcanefist
I agree. This reissue sounds quite good to me and I can’t imagine the original sounding that much better. In no way does this reissue sound like trash like the first reviewer said.
Hanelynai
What specifically is it that you disapprove of here? I see from your comments other places that this is a common remark from you on represses. They are basically money grabbing by the labels and so on. They're not collectors items, go for the original is another frequent comment. And they're always inferior in SQ? To me Grand Prix sounds quite good in this vinyl version. I have not heard the original, though, as it is not easy to source of course and pretty expensive. So, anyway, explain what it is that is wrong with this repress in SQ terms, and maybe we have something to debate?
Kitaxe
I haven’t heard a first pressing of this LP but between this and the PLAIN reissue, I would certainly choose this Sony “We Are Vinyl” release hands down. What a beautifully done reissue both sonically and physically. Well done!
Jorius
The Sony is definitely better than plain however they used a digital source for these. It’s also not nearly as bright.
AfinaS
I'm glad they've reissued this great LP on vinyl. Not the best sounding pressing in my collection but very happy to have a copy!
Hidden Winter
its garbage. Buy the 1st press and sell the repress stat
Dagdage
My copy i bought in berlin is tiptop, no surface noise and not sibilant. It sounds ok, not brilliant.But in germany we must pay for that import more than 30€. That's too much!
MegaStar
Finally got my copy and I agree with jrsmusic. It’s not that bad a pressing. I could live with this copy til a better release comes up. My issue is more on the record jacket which is totally dull and without life.
Bluecliff
Not the worst pressing I've heard in my life. This record deserves better. Very bassy, vocals are decent, guitars are sometimes muffled. Crackle between tracks will eventually drive me to blow my top. All in all, was hoping for a better pressing. Buying a beat up O.G. pressing for big bucks not on my radar. This will do.
Beydar
This release is sounding like a disaster so far. Still waiting for my copy to arrive. Will post my thoughts once I get the record.
Error parents
Pain Recordings strikes again. The vinyl is chock full of surface noise and non-fill, which you absolutely hear on quiet songs like "Mellow Doubt." Luckily the LP is mastered quite loud so the rock tunes drown out the non-fill. But the LP is very sibilant. I would not recommend buying this LP. This is my favorite album and I'm still returning my copy. 2-19-18
Zeus Wooden
The cover artwork on mine is wildly off-center. The "x" in prix almost gets cut off by the opening. Annoying. The reproduction/design value in the Plain records I have is pretty careless, some looking like poor enlargements of CD art.
Rko
I'm waiting on my copy of the edition of Grand Prix with the 7" coming from Japan so I'm thinking of selling on my copy of the CRELP 173 edition. Just wondered if there was anyone interested?
Unde
How much? Do you consider trades? Thanks so much for listening?
