About this release

For almost quarter of a century Ocean Colour Scene have been recording and releasing an ever-growing catalogue of instantly recognizable and skillfully crafted songs, all supported by an unrelenting live schedule that would put many a younger band to shame.

Now seems as good a time as any to catch our breath and celebrate a career that has bought us ten studio albums, 33 singles (many with non-album B-Sides and bonus tracks, adding to their prodigious output) plus live releases and compilations.

Released on 14 June 2024 ‘It’s A Beautiful Thing: The Best of Ocean Colour Scene’ will be made available as an expanded 44-song 2CD set, a 26-song 2LP set (their first hits collection on vinyl since 2001), on 140-gram black vinyl.

All formats will include all 17 of their UK Top 40 singles (including ‘You’ve Got It Bad’, ‘The Day We Caught The Train’, ‘The Circle’, ‘Hundred Mile High City’, ‘Travellers Tune’, and ‘Better Day’), and – on the 2CD set – a selection of those non-album tracks that are so loved by the band’s loyal fanbase.

‘It’s A Beautiful Thing: The Best Of Ocean Colour Scene’ is the latest release by the band working with Demon Music, a partnership that has seen a series of critically acclaimed box sets, with a number of their albums being made available on vinyl for the very first time
