On 12th February 1996, The Bluetones released their debut album, Expecting To Fly. It knocked Oasis' What's The Story Morning Glory off the top of the charts in the week the Mancunians scooped an armful of Brit Awards and signalled the start of a hugely successful career for The Bluetones.

Hailing from Heston in West London, The Bluetones (Scott Morriss – bass, Eds Chesters – drums, Adam Devlin – guitars, and Mark Morriss – vocals) arrived on the scene in 1995 with their debut single “Are You Blue Or Are You Blind?”. They followed this up with “Bluetonic” and then “Slight Return”, which reached # 2 on the UK singles chart, both featured on this album.

3LP - This 3 LP box set contains the original 1996 album, a 12 track LP of non-album A- and B-sides, as well as the collection of pre-fame demos The Early Garage Years. The box also contains the 12 x 12 booklet from the original limited edition sleeve, as well as a note by 6Music DJ Steve Lamacq.
