Alison Moyet remasters coming to vinyl

A year after BMG’s two-CD deluxe editions of Alison Moyet‘s four CBS/Sony albums – Alf, Raindancing, Hoodoo and Essex – come vinyl LP reissues of the same four titles.

Although Alf probably rivals Paul Young‘s No Parlez for the most-frequently-seen-vinyl-record-in-a-charity-shop award, like all these new pressings, the 1984 debut will of course use the 2016 remastered audio.

This decade of music (the albums were issued between 1984-1994) was Moyet’s most commercially successful period, delivering six top ten singles in the UK. In fact, her last top ten single was as early as 1987 (the non-album single Love Letters).

Unlike the deluxe editions, these feature no bonus audio and honour the track listings of the original albums.

Alf, Raindancing, Hoodoo and Essex will be reissued on vinyl on 27 October 2017
