Collectors information & Description: 

This album "SHRIEKBACK - Oil and Gold" includes the original custom inner sleeve with album details, complete lyrics of all songs by and artwork/photos

"Oil & Gold", is the third full-length Shriekback album, is widely considered the band's highest moment. Released in 1985 on Island Records after the failure of 1984's Jam Science on Arista Records, "Oil & Gold" saw the band metamorphose from contemplative to rocking. The addition of Martyn Barker on drums and Lu Edmonds on guitar gives many of the songs an almost punk rock feeling.
