Subject: Soft Cell & Alf (Yazoo)
Soft Cell... Non-Stop Erotic Cabaret was one of the best pop albums ever released... it crosses all styles of pop from burlesque to punk and everything in between. It contains the hit cover of 'Tainted Love'. It sold very well (not spectacularly) in both the US and Europe. So why the hell was it released on CD and then immediately recalled by the manufacturer (I don't know the status in Europe). Anyone know what happened? or how I can get a copy? The only reasonable explanation I have gotten so far was that the company recalled it to do a repress with the EP of 'Tainted Love' on it. But does it really take 9 months+ to do a remix/repress??? Also, I was able, by pure miraculous luck, to buy This Last Night... ...In Sodom on CD from Discount Records (part of Camelot records). Weird. I went back to see if they had any other SC on CD and they didn't even have TLN...IS in their files; actually, none of the record stores knew it even existed. Anyway, what other SC albums are out there on CD, and where can I get them? Alf (Yazoo)... How are Alf's solo albums? I have both Yazoo albums, and think they are excellent, but have never heard Alf solo. B.Bum I haven't figured out how to set my name to Bill instead of William M. William M. is my name, but the only time I use it is when I register for classes or get arrested.
