Digitally remastered and expanded edition of the 1980 debut album by post-punk band The Passions including three bonus tracks. The Passions released their first single on Soho Records in 1979. Later, after being seen by a record company A&R guy during a residency at the Moonlight Club in West Hampstead, the band were signed to Fiction Records, for which they recorded a single and their first album before moving to Polydor Records. Michael & Miranda was released in 1980. This special edition includes the 12 original album cuts plus three related bonus tracks and appears on CD for the first time. The bonus tracks on this CD include the band's only Fiction single 'Hunted' and the band's first single 'Needles & Pills'/'Body & Soul'. The master tapes of this independent single are long since lost, so we have used a vinyl restoration specialist to provide these two tracks. The album was produced by label boss Chris Parry, whose credits include The Jam, The Cure and The Associates amongst others. All the tracks have been sourced from the original production master tapes except tracks 14 and 15, as stated above. The CD booklet features the original album flip-side front cover (white front or black front cover), lyrics, plus detailed diary entries-'The Passions' First Album - a diary by Clive Timperley' from the related period of 1979-1980. There is also a UK discography.
