Memories are made of this........,
This review is from: The Return of The Durutti Column (Audio CD)
At a time when most of the music was fast loud and rough, those wonderful days of punk, the durutti column (another trendily named and highly talented manchester musician - Vini Reilly) came out with this wonderful, innovative and totally different sound - maybe too advanced for it's time, it was the forerunner of chill out........the original vinyl came in a real sandpaper sleeve (which wasn't too kind on the vinyl), and this remastered CD version, with extra tracks will take anyone back to those heady days. That isn't to say that the music is dated - it still sounds as fresh and innovative as it did way back. Produced by Martin Hannett, who tweaked the buttons for so many of the great bands of the time (sadly he's no longer with us). Well worth five stars and highly recommended!
