The first ever release on vinyl of Bananarama’s tenth studio album “Viva” from 2009 is especially for Record Store Day 2019 with the agreement of Bananarama and their management. The album, their most electro sounding, was a collaboration with celebrated producer, composer, songwriter Ian Masterson whose credits include work with Pet Shop Boys, Kylie Minogue and Girls Aloud.
This double LP set is pressed on electric blue coloured vinyls as an expanded edition of the original album, the eleven tracks of which comprise the first record in the package.
The ten bonus tracks, which make up the second vinyl in the set, are an assortment of rare cover versions which were bonus tracks on the original digital album release or as B-sides on limited edition vinyl singles from the time.
These are complimented by contemporaneously released remakes of Bananarama classics ‘Every Shade Of Blue ’10’ and ‘Cruel Summer ’09’ alongside three extended dance mixes of the commercially, or promotionally, released singles from the album; ‘Love Comes’, ‘Love Don’t Live Here’ and ‘The Runner’.
The packaging recreates the original CD artwork in a gatefold LP sleeve format that features album lyrics alongside promotional photos of the band.
