Product Description

HUE AND CRY REMOTE: MAJOR TO MINOR Remote: Major To Minor is a multi-media celebration of the seminal Hue and Cry album ‘Remote’, which was released over twenty five years ago and went on to enjoy not only huge acclaim but multi platinum success, spawning the singles ‘Ordinary Angel’, ‘Violently’ and ‘Looking For Linda’ along the way. Remote: Major To Minor comes as a stunning limited edition forty eight page book containing three CD’s and a DVD. Each book will be individually hand signed and numbered.

THE BOOK A bespoke designed 48 page book that candidly charts the formative years of Hue and Cry and the recording of the original ‘Remote’ album as told by brothers Pat and Greg Kane. It includes many never seen before photographs from their own private collections and goes on to discuss the ‘Remote: Major To Minor’ project complete with scans of Pat Kane’s handwritten lyrics of the ‘Major To Minor’ songs and lyrical characters within.

DISC ONE - REMOTE: MAJOR TO MINOR. Re-worked versions of the twelve songs on the original ‘Remote’ album emotionally and meticulously recorded twenty five years on especially for this release.

DISC TWO - REMOTE. The original and classic ‘Remote’ album with all twelve tracks digitally re-mastered specifically for this release.

DISC THREE-REMOTE: B-SIDES, REMIXES, RARITIES. A collection of tracks unearthed from the vaults of Abbey Road Studios and personally selected by Pat and Greg Kane for this release.

In order to exclusively feature these tracks, the original studio tapes were ‘baked’ at low temperatures for several hours in a convection oven to remove moisture, allowing them to be played again so engineers could digitalize the tracks, prior to re-mastering.

DISC FOUR (DVD) - REMOTE: RECALLED. Pat and Greg Kane together in the studio discussing the making and recording of the original 12” vinyl version of ‘Remote’ album, track by track. The DVD also includes four bonus promo videos.
