Description

Although more renowned as a 90s dance/electronica pop act, with hits like Sweet Harmony, Hello & The Sun Rising, The Beloved began in 1983 as a 4-piece guitar-based band. Two John Peel Sessions in 1985 were followed by 4 independent singles on the now-defunct Flim Flam label. Their debut album "Where It Is" was a compilation of these initially released as a vinyl LP in October 1987. The album was then released on CD in 1988 as an expanded edition, which now sells in excess of £100 on Discogs. Step forward to 2019. All the audio has been remastered from the original analogue tapes, by John Davis at Metropolis Studios, & is to be reissued with a 2nd disc containing previously unreleased demo tracks. At the time the material was recorded, the band comprised: Jon Marsh (Vocals/Keyboards), Steve Waddington (Guitars), Tim Havard (Bass) & Guy Gausden (Drums); sonically similar to peers on NME's seminal C86 compilation. The first 3 singles were produced by New Order's studio engineer Michael Johnson, 'Forever Dancing' by the band themselves. CD1 is as per the original CD album with the addition of 3 tracks released on singles but not included on the CD, 'Saints Preserve Us', 'Having Fun', & the Stephen Street remix of 'Forever Dancing'. It now comprises a virtual facsimile of all released singles. CD2 comprises 16 tracks. 3 were previously available on a limited edition 7" with the vinyl album of 'Where It Is', 2 were alternate versions of songs on CD1 (from the original vinyl single releases) and there is a 7" version of "Forever Dancing". The remaining 10 tracks are completely unheard/unreleased demos from 1983-1987. Packaging wise, the release will be foil blocked digipack contain a 16 booklet with sleeve notes, photos & posters chosen by the band.
