A book about the most emotionally articulate group to emerge from Glasgow by one of the citys most mischievously eloquent writers is cause for celebration' - The Herald 'A comprehensive and compelling read' - The List 'An insightful and enthralling peek into the world of one of the greatest acts of the modern era' - Evening Herald Ireland 2011 sees the 30th anniversary of The Blue Niles first work together. Four albums containing a total of just 33 songs have followed since. Yet scarcity has served only to intensify love for the bands intensely romantic songs. Reclusive and enigmatic, The Blue Nile are one of modern musics greatest mysteries, as secretive about their plans and status as they are about their painstaking methods. For the first time Allan Brown, a fan from the time of the bands first album in 1983 and friend of the bands composer Paul Buchanan, gets behind the veil to analyse the bands agonisingly slow progress through personal memoir, critical study, access to unreleased recordings and encounters with those who have been central to the strange and elusive mythology of The Blue Nile.
