Elbow – Cast of Thousands (2003)

This was Elbow’s second studio album released on 18 August 2003 in the UK and on 27 January 2004 in the US by V2 Records. The album title refers to the song “Grace Under Pressure”, whose refrain was recorded live at the Glastonbury Festival in 2002, as sung by the audience during the band’s set. Participants were then invited to register their names at the Elbow website, with all responders gaining a ‘credit’ on the album sleeve. The US version of the album contains two additional songs: “Whisper Grass” (which was a B-side to first single “Fallen Angel”) and “Lay Down Your Cross” (a B-side to third single “Not a Job”). The Japanese version includes “Whisper Grass” and “Brave New Shave” (another “Fallen Angel” B-side) as bonus tracks.
