5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Durutti Column album - now sounds even better, 24 May 2013

This review is from: LC (Audio CD)
You have to remember that when the first Durutti Column album was released in January 1980 (confusingly, it was called "The Return of the Durutti Column), it sounded like nothing else at the time. It featured tuneful, introspective and technically brilliant guitar-based instrumental music, with flourishes of flamenco, blues, jazz and classical styles, combined with drums, electronics and sonic atmospheres, all wrapped in a sandpaper sleeve. The fact that it was produced by Martin Hannett and released by Factory, the coolest label on the planet, only added to the intrigue and allure behind this strange album. For me, "The Return of.." was essential listening alongside Joy Division, A Certain Ratio, Young Marble Giants, Josef K, Orange Juice and early Scritti Politti.
The main force behind Durutti Column, Vini Reilly, was very prolific during the 1980's, releasing on average an album a year, plus numerous singles, EP's, compilation tracks and anthologies. This second album, "LC" introduced us to Vini's singing, which unlike his guitar-playing and compositional skills, continues to divide audiences. Let's say it's an acquired taste, but on this album, it sort of suits the material, which mostly continues the style of the debut album, but with even more melody and harmonic exploration. The reissued version collects several singles, EP's and other odds-n-ends of the time, along with some demo versions released for the first time. An essential part of the Durutti Column catalogue.
