Stella: Expanded Edition
Stella was the anti-yé-yé girl. France had never heard anything like her. A Parisian schoolgirl, she was an agent provocateur who lampooned jolly pop girl Sheila, lamented that France was in thrall to American archetypes, reconfigured Bob Dylan and satirised weekend trendies. 

This expanded edition, first-ever reissue of the only album France’s Stella issued in the Sixties irresistibly captures all facets of who she was before she abandoned pop and began working with the jazz-influenced band Magma in the 1970s, whose Christian Vander she would marry. Without Stella, it is impossible to understand who Stella Vander is.

She laid the table for the raspberry-blowing musical cheek of Jacques Dutronc and echoed Serge Gainsbourg’s raised eyebrows. Her records were fantastic – pop art-style cut-ups, inside-out psychedelia, wonky soul and rough-edged garage rock. Stella took on French pop and made it her own.

RPM International’s latest journey to France, the expanded edition of Stella, follows definitive releases by Antoine, Jacques Dutronc, Emily, France Gall, Chantal Goya, Johnny Hallyday, Pussy Cat and Sylvie Vartan. RPM International is the authoritative home of the greatest music from France’s past.

Homage: Deluxe CD Edition
The euphoric joy of disco has been a consistent thread that has run through the diverse, and illustrious thirty year career of pop legend Jimmy Somerville; his disco cover versions such as "Don’t Leave Me This Way”, "I Feel Love”, "Never Can Say Goodbye” and "(You Make Me Feel) Mighty Real” have been among his largest hits but it hasn’t been until now with ‘Homage’ that a whole album of Jimmy’s self-written material has been given a lush and authentic disco style production. 

This all new album has been an extended labour of love for Jimmy, painstakingly recreating the genuine sounds of the hedonistic classic disco era that he so loves. "This isn’t a pastiche, this is an homage”, he states. 

This CD edition comes in collectable deluxe packaging;  an embossed replica mini - LP Gatefold sleeve complete with booklet and housing a black vinyl styled CD.

"Happy days indeed. I've finally made the disco album I always wanted to and never thought could. If I was 15 again I'd buy it, sit on my bed, slowly open the gate fold, slide out the vinyl, place it on the turntable then jump off the bed and imagine someone just passed me a tambourine…I'd be in heaven!  The horns, the strings, the bass, the guitars, the drums, the backing vocals and the melody….the escape.  I've worked with some great people on this album. They gave time, talent and genuine energy and it sounds it. So open your ears embrace the groove and pay homage to an all too easily derided sound ..... I ♥Disco!

NB: This title is release March 6th 2015 and will not be dispatched before this date.

The Velvet Trail: Limited UK Edition 2Disc CD/DVD Set

Marc had previously hinted that his 2010 album Varieté would be his last recording to feature his own new material. Famed English producer and songwriter Chris Braide (Lana Del Ray, David Guetta, Beyoncé, Britney Spears), is a huge fan of Marc’s work and succeeded in making Marc change his mind.

Marc says of ‘The Velvet Trail’: "Some of the songs have a more personal melancholy, reflective and evocative, like the title track ‘The Velvet Trail’, a song about memories, nostalgia, childhood and death.  So it is too with the song ‘The Pain of Never’ (Chris Braide’s personal favourite). Chris wanted to create his ultimate Marc Almond record, electric, lush, emotional, dark and sexy and I felt inspired by his tunes and production to deliver just that”. He then explains the seamless format of the album:  "Chris saw the record as one journey, one record you put on from beginning to end, linking tracks with musical interludes. This a reaction against the downloaded digital age, where individual tracks are taken or albums re-arranged in different orders. I always see my records as a show running from beginning to end that takes you on a ride”. 

The Velvet Trail is an album that wasn’t supposed to exist - born from a spontaneous, organic inspirational process. It wasn’t just written and recorded, but felt and created. For all those who love Marc Almond’s work and those who just love true music and the emotions it generates, this is one not to be missed.

This strictly limited UK edition contains a bonus DVD with all 4 of the specially commissioned ‘Velvet Trail’ promotional films included in especially expanded artwork. 

NB: This title is released March 9 and will not be dispatched before this date.
