Erasure – The Two Ring Circus (Double Vinyl)

earlyerasureFrom 1987 and Erasure had released just 2 albums and were really at the start of their illustrious career. But they managed to release this album of remixes and alternative versions as a double album, with both discs running at 45 rpm. Great packaging from the Me Company and getting an orchestra in for 3 tracks (which are the highlights) proved how much Daniel Miller and Mute had faith in the duo. They even get the legendary Little Louie Vega to do some remixes, his remix of “Hideaway” is another highlight.

  1. Totally agree with your sentiment about the orchestral tracks… the whole album performed in that style would have been wonderful!

  2. I agree with you on Hideaway – just top notch work. Sad to read Vince absolutely piss on Little Louie in Spin magazine (at the time) and all his hard work.
