    2LP Set

    A reissue of ‘Who’s Afraid of…?’, the debut album from pioneering British synth-pop act The Art of Noise, featuring Oscar and Grammy Award winning composer Anne Dudley and hugely successful producer Trevor Horn. ‘Who’s Afraid of..?’ was one of the first releases on the fledgling ZTT label in 1984 and has been unavailable on vinyl since it was repressed and repackaged in 1985. UMC will make it available on 180gm vinyl for Record Store Day 2021, as a new limited edition release featuring a second LP of rare Art of Noise recordings, presented as ‘Who’s Afraid of… Goodbye?’ These are making their first appearance on vinyl and were previously only available as part of the now deleted 2006 box set, ‘What Have You Done With My Body, God?’ For aficionados of the brilliant ZTT catalogue “this has been number 34 in Zang Tuum Tumb’s Incomplete Incidental Series, number 17 in the Complete Element Series, and now number 24 in the Definitive Definition Series."

                                                    The Deluxe Edition for Village of the Damned presents the full score as heard in the film for the first time, a far more complete presentation then the 1995 Original Soundtrack which was not only truncated, but made of an entirely separate mix that wasn’t featured in the film. The set does however include the track, “Midwich Shuffle,” a fun number which was created specifically for the 1995 soundtrack despite never actually appearing in the film. Interest in John Carpenter's original film scores has never been higher, and his collaboration with Dave Davies of the Kinks is a one of a kind moment in cinematic music history. The album includes an all new original art direction with new notes and classic film stills and comes pressed on Orange Haze vinyl.

Originally released in March 1984, it contains the single “Track Three”, which was accompanied by a stunning promo video which was first aired on the Old Grey Whistle Test. The album features a stellar cast including Billy Ocean, Mark Isham, Evan Parker and Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits playing guitar on a cover of the Tennessee Williams classic, “Blanket Roll Blues”. Among the album’s many fans was Bono of U2 who is on record as saying: “Scott Walker’s Climate of Hunter was a great influence on The Joshua Tree – just listen to “With Or Without You” – March 1987.

Following the huge success of their debut ‘Mr Fantasy’ they served up this self-titled blinder for their second offering. A bewitching blend of ‘60s pop melodies, blues-rock, folk and psychedelia, the 1968 set was produced by Rolling Stones right-hand man Jimmy Miller. It’s being reissued here in a strictly limited run (500 only for the UK) for Record Store Day 2016.

Beginning life as a Stock Aitken and Waterman B-side for Morgan McVey, Neneh and Bomb The Bass’s radical overhaul referenced fashion collective Buffalo, pre-Massive Attack ragamuffins The Wild Bunch, Cherry’s then boyfriend Esteban Cuadillo and Bomb The Bass’s already chart-bothering Tim Simenon. Such a melting pot of street styles would create a song that both defined an era in the history of the dancefloor and produced a global hit, peaking at number 3 in the UK charts. This classic song is reissued on a picture disc 12" with the extended version of Buffalo Stance, backed with the David Morales "A Little More Puerto Rican" mix of single ‘Kisses On The Wind’.

An epic four-part suite, it looked to sources as varied as native american music, religious incanation, poetry by Ben Jonson and Longfellow and classical for its inspiration and created a piece of music that is unique and much-loved in Mike Oldfield’s canon. Previously only available as a limited edition of 500 on vinyl to celebrate the re-release of Incantations in 2011, this long unavailable and highly sought-after capture of Mike Oldfield’s 2011 mix of the album is being made available again for RSD 2021. Released with the full cooperation of Oldfield, the album features the artwork from the reissue, and is presented in pristine, ultra clear180gm vinyl, transferred at Abbey Road.
