Biography

Originating at the turn of the 1980s as a leader of the lite-jazz movement, Everything but the Girl became an unlikely success story more than a decade later, emerging at the vanguard of the fusion between pop and electronica. Founded in 1982 by Hull University students Tracey Thorn and Ben Watt, the duo took their name from a sign placed in the window of a local furniture shop, which claimed ...

Format: Audio CD
It's curious to think that Everything But The Girl were ever thought of as dance affiliates (thanks to just one remix of a song that started life as an acoustic song anyway). It's also equally curious to learn that throughout their career, they did not stick to one style either. This was their first album - when pretty much the influence du jour was smoky cosmopolitan jazz-tinged bossanova grooves, in line with a few other [London-based] bands and artists around at the time during those stylistically confused days of the early 80s (I think first and foremost of the lovely eclectic jazz popsters Weekend - led by Simon Booth, who actually guests on this album along with a few other luminaries). If there is an overriding earlier influence that shaped this album, however, then it has to be the music of Stan Getz and Astrid Gilberto.....with a bit of Cole Porter thrown into the mix (they made their debut with a cover of "Night and Day").

"Eden" is a delight from start to finish - ravishingly melodic and with a clean uncluttered production.... every song is a perfect bite-sized urban vignette sung sweetly by either Tracey or Ben in their own understated but detached way. There's no excessively emotional outpourings here - just perfect introspection done with style and finesse. It's hard to pick out any favourites because I have owned this record on tape ever since its first release in 1984 - having it see me through my student years at university right up to my oncoming middle age....and still I do not get tired of listening to it, and still it sounds fresh to this day. Obviously, the relative brevity of this album - twelve concise songs in barely 35 minutes - would be seen as a bit of a swizz now in this age of over-long CD epics and mass repackaging with bonus tracks etc....

I have loved this album since before pussy was a kitten. There are a clutch of brilliant tracks of a quality never reached again by EBTG. 'Each and every one' is a song of such beauty that it hurts to think it barely dented the top 40. I cannot recommend this album highly enough.

I have been professionally involved in the music business as a performer and a sound engineer for 20 years. I loved this album when it was released and I'm ashamed to say that I forgot about it. I was worried that I was remembering the quality from a less experienced standpoint and was reluctant to risk being dissappointed. Weird I know but there were lots of memories associated with this album. Anyway it is a masterpiece! Not only are Ben and Tracey brilliant, exposed, raw, fragile and talented. They manage to convey true emotion which is utterly believable, the songs are at times truly beautiful and the musicianmanship is absolute class. The recordings have been handled in a sensitive and thoughtful manner and the Flugel horn solos are masterpieces. Buy this album it is a classic honestly!-

personally i'm not concerned that this release will only contain 12 tracks, as it is listed as a double cd (as all Collector's Editions are). hopefully we'll get all the tracks from both the US and UK releases, which will comprise basically all of the b-sides and bonus tracks from the singles. the first peel sessions from 18 Aug 1984 are relevant (Ballad Of The Times, Riverbed Dry, Never Could Have Been Worse, Don't You Go), and hopefully will be included also. i'm thinking that the bbc might have recorded a show around that time also. this is all just wishful thinking; i'll just be happy to get this marvelous album in a better mastering than the original job. what worries me is that it keeps getting pushed back. according to the release dates originally given, we should have had this around the first week of september. now it's nearly november. anyone heard anything?

I have had this on cassette (remember them?) for years but decided to download for the MP3 player. This is a beautifully produced album, bitter sweet lyrics with some superb jazz influenced backing tracks and not a duff tune on it. I never tire of listening to it. First time I have downloaded an album, it was an easy process that worked well.
