Pablo Honey [COLLECTOR'S EDITION]
If Oxford quintet Radiohead would soon scale greater artistic heights, there's no denying the strength of their inaugural album, PABLO HONEY, cited as one of the 100 greatest debuts of all time by Amazon's editorial staff. Named after a Jerky Boys skit (a snippet of which can be heard on the album's “How Do You?”), the collection wears influences like U2 and Nirvana on its sleeve, yet there are several striking songs that suggest a distinctive, original vision - among them “Anyone Can Play Guitar,” “Thinking About You” and “Creep,” the group's first single, released on this day in 1992. Frontman Thom Yorke had written that anthem of self-loathing years before, and the Collector's Edition of PABLO HONEY includes acoustic and BBC versions of the song plus 20 additional bonus tracks to paint a fascinating portrait of the embryonic band.
