Marc Almond - Enchanted: Expanded Edition - 2CD/DVD
2 Cd / Dvd
Originally released in August 1990, this is the first ever expanded re-issue of Marc Almond's opulent sixth studio album. Enchanted is saturated in Marc's signature poetic romanticism and contains some of his finest lyric writing in songs as various as the epic 'Madame de la Luna', 'Death's Diary' and 'Orpheus In Red Velvet'. The original album is replicated on the first disc alongside all six B-Sides that originally featured across the various formats of the album's three singles. The second CD presents a selection of the original album demos evidencing a more acoustic intimacy that frames Almond's superior song-writing craft in a counterpoint tradition of the deft and immediate story-telling thrust of the very best of European chanson. This disc also showcases the various commercially released spin-off extended versions and dance remixes of the album's singles; 'A Lover Spurned', 'The Desperate Hours' and 'Waifs and Strays', the last of which was remixed by Soft Cell partner Dave Ball in his guise as one half of electronic dance act The Grid. The release also has a third disc, a DVD containing the three promotional videos commissioned for the album.
