Glass Modern present a reissue of In The Presence Of Greatness, the debut Velvet Crush LP from 1991, originally released on Creation Records. In The Presence Of Greatness was recorded and mixed on eight tracks by Matthew Sweet in his basement in Princeton, New Jersey 1990-91. Repackaged in a new sleeve with photographs from the original session by Michael Lavine. 180 gram pressing on turquoise vinyl. "In the Presence of Greatness sounds like Big Star's #1 Record updated for a new decade. The general air of mildly anguished wistfulness is the same, as are the jangly guitars and high harmonies, but Velvet Crush plays with a post-punk sprightliness and a less overtly British Invasion-inspired melodic sense." --Stewart Mason, AllMusic.
