This strictly Limited 2LP Edition 500 pressing features a second disc with 7 bonus tracks remastered from the original 1/4inch tapes. Pressed on 180g vinyl both discs features newly designed inner bags packed in a wide spined sleeve to compliment our other Thompson Twins 2LP sets. The bonus tracks include the Extended and Dub mixes of 'Get That Love', the 12inch version of 'Revolutions' and the 12inch mix and 7inch single remix of 'Nothing In Common' written for the soundtrack of the American comedy drama of the same name. "Close To The Bone is the sixth album by the band and sees the first album without Joe Leeway. Now stripped to a duo the album see Rupert Hine take the producers role alongside Tom Bailey. Hine had produced albums for Tina Turner, Howard Jones and Suzanne Vega and his polished approach was seen as the perfect foil for Tom Baileys writing and arrangements and Alannah Curries lyrics. The band had taken a break from 1986 following Joe Leeways departure and the album reflects the turmoil in the bands personal lives. With Tom Bailey reuniting with his parents and Alannah Curries tragic miscarriage. The albums title 'Close To The Bone' reflects this, as Tom Bailey said "for the first time we had real experiences that we could write about. When you tour all the time, things become circular and one-dimensional. i never realised it before, but taking time away for whatever reason is great for you songwriting".
