Mike and the Mechanics / “Living Years” 2CD deluxe edition


Mike and the Mechanics‘ 1988 album Living Years will be released as a Deluxe Edition on 20 January 2014.

This late-in-the-day 25th Anniversary issue does of course feature The Living Years, a massively successful hit single for Mike Rutherford’s band, that reached number one in the US Billboard charts in March 1989.

This new edition features a new version of The Living Years with Andrew Roachford on lead vocals (and with backing from the South African Isango choir) as well as live recordings from the original UK tour in 1989.

Full track listing below. This is scheduled to be released on the same day as the delayed (and retitled) Singles collection.
