One of the most renowned and acclaimed live albums of all time, Portishead’s Roseland NYC Live will receive an anniversary reissue, 25 years after its original release in November 1998.

To be released on April 26, this newly remastered version has an expanded tracklisting to include “Undenied” and “Numb” from the concert film, as well as the full length performance of “Western Eyes,” which played in part over the credits of the film. “Sour Times” and “Roads” are also now the original Roseland versions (previously substituted on the album release with recordings from other performances).

This anniversary edition was originally released on streaming services on the actual day of the records anniversary (November 2). It is now being made available as a limited edition double-LP set on solid red vinyl with gatefold sleeve, a double-sided fold out poster, and a re-creation of the guest “backstage” sticky pass used at the concert. There will also be a digipak CD including the venue guest “backstage” sticky pass and 12-page booklet. All iterations of this release contain the same track list.

Portishead’s Adrian Utley, who has overseen the full production of this reissue, said: “I’ve always held the memory of this show which we played before our second album was released. This was the first time an audience had heard the new tunes and it was put together to launch that album. Great care was taken over the orchestrations and look of the filming. It preceded a year long World tour for us. Recorded and Filmed in the legendary Roseland Ballroom in New York which unfortunately doesn’t exist any more. This reissue has three tracks that were not released before and we’ve re-mastered all of them.”

Roseland NYC Live was originally recorded and filmed at New York’s Roseland Ballroom with a 28-piece orchestra in 1997. A live album and concert film combined, it has sold over one million copies to date.
