Central Reservations is Beth Orton's second album. Released in 1999 it saw Beth nominated for the Mercury Music Prize for a second time and won her a BRIT Award in 2000.
Now expanded to 2CDs with bonus material selected by Beth, it features a previously unreleased live performance from New York and a selection of demos from the album alongside key b-sides.
Beth says “Listening back to the record now, I enjoy hearing the melodies and how I played with them and the words. The making of records is often a period of redemption for me and the recording of Central Reservation was the actualizing of all my most positive hopes and wishes.”
