She Was Only A Grocer's Daughter: Deluxe Edition - Blow Monkeys

She Was Only A Grocer's Daughter: Deluxe Edition
•    THE BLOW MONKEYS were formed in the early 1980s by singer and songwriter Robert Howard (stage name: Dr. Robert). Combining the glamour of Roxy Music with the energy of post-punk, the sophistication of nu-jazz and the vocal stylings of Marc Bolan, they signed to RCA in 1984.

•    Third album SHE WAS ONLY A GROCER’S DAUGHTER from 1987 was their most successful, driven by the success of the Top 5 hit single ‘It Doesn’t Have To Be This Way’. It also boasts the hits ‘Out With Her’ and ‘(Celebrate) The Day After You’ with the legendary Curtis Mayfield.

•    This re-mastered deluxe edition boasts the best of THE BLOW MONKEYS’ non-album B-sides  from the period (including 1988’s ‘This Day Today’, which dated from the album sessions) and alternative mixes from the period. Many tracks make their digital debut.

•    The package boasts three previously unissued demos and recordings made by the band during the sessions for the album, including the otherwise unheard Dr. Robert songs ‘Ghetto Girl’ and ‘Checking Out’. Also unveiled is the demo for ‘It Doesn’t Have To Be This Way’.

•    Dr. Robert has been interviewed for the sleeve-notes and has co-compiled this reissue.

•    THE BLOW MONKEYS are playing several shows across the summer to support this reissue.

•    The band have been extremely active in the past two years, with a brand new album Feels Like A New Morning, deluxe reissues of their first two albums and a 3-CD retrospective on Sony.

This product is released June 30 2014 and will not be dispatched before this date.

Despite Straight Lines - Very Best Of
Released 27/11/08. At long last, 23 years after its original release, Marilyn's one and only album "Despite Straight Lines" is finally reissued. This is the first time on CD for this album. The album features Marilyn's four best selling singles including the number 4 smash "Calling Your Name". The album has 8 bonus tracks that include 2 mixes of "Calling Your Name" 12" promo mixes of "Cry And Be Free" (Gospel and Streisand styles) and the extended version of "Baby U Left Me In The Cold".

The CD booklet includes a UK Discography with all the accompanying sleeves and a biography of Marilyn's career. Marilyn emerged from the New Romantic movement in London at the end of the 1970's. As a face on the scene he forged a strong friendship with Boy George. An appearance in a Eurythmics video brought Marilyn extensive press attention and he soon signed a deal with Phonogram. Success was to follow with a string of self and co-written tunes but all too soon problems set in and Marilyn's career was over prematurely. His songwriting and artistic style means he'll always enjoy the status of being an 80's icon

Heaven Is Waiting
The Danse Society were a very special band formed in the early 1980’s and hailed from the Goth heartland of Yorkshire. After their highly regarded album "Seduction" on their own label Society Records, the band signed to Arista Records and released this the excellent "Heaven Is Waiting" album. It's their most complete and accomplished album. During the eighties, the Danse Society created a reputation for lush and atmospheric sounds that separated them from the rest of the gothic scene at the time. The innovative and creative use of keyboards was the element gave the band their distinctive sound. This 15 track collection includes the original UK LP version from 1984 and 4 bonus tracks. The cult singles "2000 Light Years From Home" and "Heaven Is Waiting" are featured and 3 of the bonus tracks are taken from the original cassette version of the album. The CD features the original ‘Heaven Is Waiting’ LP cover along with the other sleeves from the Society Records period. Sleeve notes have been written by Danse Society keyboardist, Lyndon Scarfe and also included is a complete discography of the band. Our Price: £9.95

Morin Heights
Released 27/07/2009. Signed to EMI in April 1974,

harmonies to score major international success with three albums in
three years.This third album was recorded at Morin Heights in
Quebec,Canada in 1976, and this time had Roy Thomas Baker (Queen)

My Pocket . Again we have the demo version from David Patons archive,
together with three more unreleased songs as bonus tracks.
