Non-Stop Erotic Cabaret: Deluxe Hardback Book 2CD

£19.99

Release Date: 28 June, 2024

The debut album from Marc Almond and Dave Ball, AKA Soft Cell, is truly an icon of electronic music. Not only did ‘Non-Stop Erotic Cabaret’ introduce the world to the classic singles ‘Tainted Love’ (one of the biggest global hits of all time) ‘Bedsitter’ and ‘Say Hello Wave Goodbye’, it also shocked and delighted in equal measure with a 10-track song cycle straight outta the seedier, sleazier, darker side of life. ‘Sex Dwarf’, ‘Frustration’, ‘My Secret Life’, ‘Seedy Films’… four decades on, it still has the power to thrill, shock and swoon.

Following 2023’s sell-out 6CD Super Deluxe box, plus expanded vinyl editions and Atmos mix, Mercury-EMI / UMR present a 2CD Deluxe Edition cut-down containing highlights from the box set.

CD1 contains the original album remastered at Air Studios by Barry Grint, the classic full-length 12” of ‘Tainted Love’ / ‘Where Did Our Love Go’, plus the original B-sides for ‘Tainted Love’, ‘Bedsitter’, ‘Say Hello, Wave Goodbye’ and the stunning standalone single ‘Memorabilia’.

CD2 features ‘Non-Stop Extended Cabaret’, the original album in its entirety formed from extended versions by Soft Cell’s Dave Ball. The full-length ‘Memorabilia’ also makes an appearance here, along with a brand new extended version of its original 7” flipside ‘A Man Could Get Lost’.

The book-style hardcover packaging also contains a 24-page book packed with pictures and an essay by legendary music journalist, Adrian Thrills.
