OPT4 033 LP 

Complete 22-track collection of THE CIGARETTES entire recorded output. It was at the tail end of what would later be loosely termed "The Seventies", in Lincoln, Merry England, that three teenagers formed—the consequences of their actions are captured here. You Were So Young consists of everything that The Cigarettes ever recorded in what was their two-year life span. From the very beginnings in the rehearsal room through to tracks recorded for an unreleased third single. It includes the two singles and their flip sides, some tracks that were included on a local compilation album, and their solitary John Peel session along with a handful that never found their way onto a record. Their debut single "They're Back Again, Here They Come", exchanges hands from upwards of £100 and "You Were So Young" has been viewed on YouTube over 1.3 million times. Over the years The Cigarettes have gained a wealth of interest, leaving many to scratch their heads and wonder how they slipped under the radar for so long. Includes an in-depth interview with Rob and Steve, answering pretty much all there is to know about The Cigarettes. Pressed on 180-gram vinyl in gatefold jackets. Includes a poster, sticker and badge.
