· Now, for the first time ever, the gorgeous, debut album by THE LOVER SPEAKS has been digitally remastered and expanded.
· Released in 1986, the British duo of David Freeman and Joseph Hughes recorded their self-titled, debut album in Los Angeles with legendary producer Jimmy Iovine (Simple Minds, Stevie Nicks, Pretenders, Eurythmics, Alison Moyet, U2, Tom Petty).
· The album has been long out-of-print. The original CD is nearly impossible to find and sells for staggering amounts of money when it turns up online.
· This expanded edition features 18 tracks including the original 10-track album alongside six bonus tracks that have never appeared on CD before.
· Three singles were released from the album including ‘No More ‘I Love You’s’’ (UK #58), ‘Every Lover’s Sign’ (US #6 Dance), and ‘Tremble Dancing’. · Also included is their powerful recording of the Dusty Springfield classic, ‘I Close My Eyes And Count To Ten’, which was released as a stand alone single in early 1987. The track was produced by Dave Stewart.
· In 1995, Annie Lennox famously covered ‘No More ‘I Love You’s’’ and was rewarded with her biggest, international solo single which peaked at #2 in the UK and #23 in the US.
· The 16-page booklet contains comprehensive liner notes, photos, an illustrated discography, lyrics, complete credits, and insightful track annotations from band members David Freeman (vocals) and Joseph Hughes (guitars, keyboards).
