Marc Almond ‎– The Boy Who Came Back (12″)

From 1984 and off his album “Vermin in Ermine.” A biographical love story awash with sweeping strings and more pacer than previous single , “You Came” That brass really hooks you in.

The Sinners on this one include Richard Riley on guitar, Billy McGee on various basses, Martin McCarrick on cello, Gary Barnacle on saxophone, Annie Hogan on keys and jazz trumpeter Enrico J. Tomasso. I’m guessing Mike Hedges produced and provided the drum programming or was it Stephen Humphreys on drums… I don’t know.

B-side is something else, quick, jazzy but with a nod back to Soft Cell. Quite rare in this longer version and totally mine blowing. Swing-a-ding-Dong!
