Cherry Red part 2

Following on from last weeks post Cherry Red now seem to be focused on rereleasing "lost" lps on cd, with a bias towards the 80s. They have also set up Cherry Pop http://www.cherryred.co.uk/cherrypop/artists.php which is more commercial - I'm not sure the world misses Belouis Some's cd but there must be a demand somewhere.

However , Circle and a Square by Red Box was bought straight away. Although the production sounds a tad dated you cant help but admire the ambition. This is one of those lets play everything including the kitchen sink type albums. I guess they are known for the catchy to the point of annoying singles Lean on Me and For America. I fell in love with them after a ridiculously energetic run through of Lean on Me on Tops of the Pops. i think it involved mass drums and flags ... anyway it looked like they had actually thought about rather than just turning up to mime.
The track I'm posting is another catchy one and should have been the next single - I've always been a sucker for massed voice choruses / harmonies
The follow up LP (Motive) was even better but that is another story. With a release rate that makes Blue Nile look prolific rumours of a 3rd cd in the near future are abound ... i cant wait
