The Communards ' sophomore album Red consolidated the genius of the musical partnership between Bronski Beat singer Jimmy Somerville and pianist Richard Coles . Fusing synths and hi-NRG production with lush string and horn arrangements, the Communards straddled pop and the political, the album's themes set against the political unrest and moral panic of late '80s Britain. A global smash upon its release in 1987, this is the remastered and expanded 35th Anniversary Edition with new sleeve notes.

Double-CD (LMS 5521755) and deluxe double-LP (LMS 5521753) versions features an extensive array of B-sides, live tracks, demo versions and remixes, including classic mixes by legendary '80s club doyens Shep Pettibone , Clivilles & Cole (better known as C&C Music Factory ) and a euphoric new 2022 remix of "Never Can Say Goodbye" by UK outfit The 2 Bears ( Hot Chip 's Joe Goddard and DJ Raf Rundell ).
