The Fugitive Kind - Swans Way

The Fugitive Kind
This is a reissue of the influential "The Fugitive Kind” by Swans Way that was released on 03/11/1984. The band were tagged as leading lights of the "new jazz" movement of the early 1980's.
The album includes various versions of all their five singles ‘Theme From The Balcony’, ‘Soul Train’, ‘The Anchor’, ‘Illuminations’ and ‘When The Wild Calls’ dating from 1982-84.
This 16 track CD features the nine of the ten tracks from the original album plus seven bonus tracks, 12" versions of ‘Theme From The Balcony’, ‘Soul Train’, ‘When The Wild Calls’, full length versions of ‘The Anchor’ and ‘Hangover’, ‘Illuminations - extended pleasure’ and their cover of the Gershwin classic ‘Summertime’ (live).
‘Soul Train’ was a UK hit single in February 1984 and was considered a classic of its day.
Five bonus tracks are appearing on CD for the 1st time (tracks 11, 13, 14, 15 & 16).
This is the most complete collection of the band's material available.
The CD booklet features sleeve notes written by vocalist Maggie De Monde, a full UK discography with many images of the original sleeves and promotional material.
Swans Way were formed in Birmingham in 1982 with Maggie De Monde (vocals, percussion), Rick P. Jones (double bass)and vocalist Robert Shaw. The band were seen as part of the "new jazz" scene with the likes of Sade, Carmel and Blue Rondo a La Turk. They released a single on indie label Exit International and then signed to Phonogram. Swans Way's 2nd single ‘Soul Train’ was a top 20 hit with three further singles following on. The album 'The Fugitive Kind' was released and charted but it was more a critical rather than a commercial success with the band's experimental approach and sound being their lasting legacy to the sound of their day.

Oil And Gold
Released 15/08/11. Oil & Gold, the third full-length Shriekback
album, is widely considered the band's best. Released in 1985 on Island
Records, Oil & Gold saw the band metamorphose from contemplative to
rocking. The addition of Martyn Barker on drums and Lu Edmonds (Ex
Damned) on guitar gives many of the songs an almost punk rock feeling.Oil
& Gold is the bridge between the old trio of Barry Andrews, Carl
Marsh, and Dave Allen, and the new vehicle for Andrews alone. Longtime
singer Marsh left the band halfway through the recording, leaving
Andrews to take over the vocals, the album's highlights, including the
three opening songs, sung by Marsh, and the hit, Nemesis, became the
band's signature sound.This enhanced edition comes with a newly
remastered bonus disc for B-Sides - some never before released on CD -
as well as a enhanced booklet with new notes
Our Price: £9.95
