Echo & The Bunnymen’s 1985 compilation Songs to Learn and Sing is being reissued on vinyl later this month.
The 11-track collection featured songs from the band’s four albums up to that point: Crocodiles (1980), Heaven Up Here (1981), Porcupine (1983) and Ocean Rain (1984). It also included non-album tracks ‘The Puppet’, ‘Never Stop’ and B-side ‘Do It Clean’.
A new song, ‘Bring On The Dancing Horses’, was issued as a single to promote this compilation and was was the last track on the record (there are in chronological order). This song was produced by Laurie Latham who had worked with Paul Young earlier that year. Initial vinyl pressings included a seven-inch single of the early version of ‘The Pictures on My Wall’.
This album is being reissued to coincide with a 40th anniversary UK tour which starts tonight in Sheffield. It will be released on 18 February 2022.
