Having released 1991′s Laughing Stock on vinyl for the first time ever last year, Talk Talk continues to reissue its catalog, this time with 1986’s The Colour of Spring and 1988’s Spirit of Eden set for an April release on 180-gram audiophile vinyl with an accompanying DVD featuring a new 96 kHz/24 bit LPCM stereo mix.
Due out April 2 in the U.K. via EMI, the two albums are cut on vinyl from the original analog masters, and each feature a bonus track on the DVD version; The Colour of Spring features B-side “It’s Getting Late This Evening” and Spirit of Eden includes B-side “John Cope.”
On the same date, EMI is releasing straight CD reissues — with no bonus material, but with updated artwork coordinated by frontman Mark Hollis — of those two albums, plus 1982’s The Party’s Over and 1984’s It’s My Life. Together, the albums trace the English group’s evolution from its early synthpop roots into a more a more experimental, art-rock group
Check out the video preview of the reissues posted above.
