P.J. Proby / Marc Almond Featuring My Life Story Orchestra – Yesterday Has Gone (Euro CD Single)

From December 1996 and some Cabaret / Lounge and a great duet between Marc Almond and veteran Texan singer P.J. Proby. There is a bit of synth / electronica on this Cover originally done by Cupid’s Inspiration back in 1968. This appeared on Proby’s album ,”Legend” but didn’t eclipse the Gene Pitney only getting to number 58 in the charts, released at the wrong time of the year maybe?

Mixed by Pete Schwier and produced by Almond and Neal Whitmore (Sigue Sigue Sputnik)

Balerico provide a synthy remix, EuroHouse in flavour, a bit HiNRG in style with the duet intact. It lifts off into a “Hands in the Air” anthem!

P.J. Proby covers Almond’s “Devil In A Red Dress”, 60’s Country-tinged croon. Neal X providing the guitar and John Green on the keys as well as arranging the orchestra.

Bob Stanley and Pete Wiggs (St. Etienne) play and wrote “Pain In Your Heart”, a piano led ballad with Double Bass and Harmonica from Ian Catt , another St. Etienne player.
