Motörhead’s controversial album, Another Perfect Day, will celebrate its 40th anniversary with a deluxe reissue. The album, featuring former Thin Lizzy guitarist Brian Robertson, who replaced Fast Eddie Clarke, departed from the band’s classic sound, incorporating a more “musical” approach. Initially met with mixed reactions in 1983, the album is now a unique chapter in Motörhead’s early history. To celebrate the milestone, a special reissue, including deluxe editions, is set to be released on November 3rd. These editions will feature a remastering of the original album, previously unreleased demo bonus tracks, a full concert recording from 1983, the album’s backstory, and unseen photos. A limited edition blue and black swirl vinyl of the standalone album will also be available.
