• 140g black vinyl release
• With an inner sleeve containing rare photos plus a sleevenote and track by track annotation about ‘Dream Into Action’ by Howard Jones as told to acclaimed writer Anil Prasad.
• A #2 album in the UK ‘Dream Into Action’ was a Top 20 album in Germany, Holland, Italy, Canada, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland.

Released in March 1985, ‘Dream Into Action’ reached #2 in the UK Album Charts and achieved Gold Album status. Like its predecessor ‘Human’s Lib’, it contained four Top 20 hit singles; ‘Things Can Only Get Better’ reached #6, ‘Look Mama’ achieved #10, ‘Life In One Day’, #14 and ‘No One Is To Blame’, at #16.

‘Dream Into Action’ also enjoyed massive international success; particularly in the USA where it reached #10 in the Billboard Album charts achieving Platinum status. It spawned three Billboard Top 20 hit singles including ‘Things Can Only Get Better’ which reached #5, ‘Life In One Day’, #19 and a re-recorded version of ‘No-One Is To Blame’ featuring Phil Collins on backing vocals and drums (produced by Hugh Padgham) which gave Howard his biggest ever US hit single reaching #4.

The album also enjoyed tremendous success internationally in Canada, New Zealand, Australia and throughout most of Europe.

Originally re-issued in December 2018 on strictly limited- edition green vinyl, Cherry Red are delighted to repress this classic album and make it available again on 140g black vinyl.
