Felt the day the rain came down

Absolute Classic Masterpieces is the third compilation album by English alternative rock band Felt, released in 1992. It collects tracks from the band's singles and albums recorded for Cherry Red between 1981 and 1985, with two exceptions: "Dance of Deliverance" from guitarist Maurice Deebank's album, Inner Thought Zone; and "Index", a single recorded and released by leader Lawrence before the band formed properly. Tracks 4, 9, 11, 15 and 18 are instrumental.


The liner notes for the album feature an interview with Felt's original bass player, Nick Gilbert, reflecting on the formation of the band.

"Sunlight Bathed the Golden Glow" as it appears here is the version from the band's third album, and is different from the single. The version of "Fortune" here is a re-recording of the song from their first album.
