Product Description

Product Description

In 2013, Marc Almond realised the ambition of a lifetime when he attended a few recording sessions with the legendary record producer Tony Visconti, famous for his work with David Bowie, Hazel O'Connor, T-Rex, The Moody Blues and Morrissey. The stunning results of their unique collaboration are the two tracks ''Burn Bright'' / ''The Dancing Marquis'' that kick-off this CD. Next to producer Tris Penna, Tony Visconti also lends a helping hand on string arrangements and mixing duties on two further tracks, Tasmanian Tiger, and Death of a Dandy, the latter inspired by the recent death of Sohos tragic artist Sebastian Horsley and which also features special guest Danielz from T-Rex tribute T.Rextasy. Carrying on in this collaborative vein, the CD also includes the talents of Martin McCarrick (Siouxsie And The Banshees, Therapy?) contributing cello on the hearteningly buoyant ''Burn Bright'' and strings on the title-track ''The Dancing Marquis'', a song that Marc Almond wrote ''with Henry Paget 5th Marquess of Anglesey in mind". Jarvis Cocker brings to the mix an infectious electro-pop number he wrote especially for Marc, Worship Me Now, where he also features as a special guest on backing vocals and on the production duties with Jason Buckle (All Seeing I). Two additional dance remixes of Worship Me Now are also included exclusively on this release. Love!

I think this album shows Marcs' excitement at working with Tony Visconti. I love Marc Almond when he is playful, egotistical and a flirt, so this album is fulfilling for myself. The Dancing Marquis. Burn Bright and Worship Me Now (Written by Jarvis Cocker) are my favourites. Marc has never been off-form even at his most experimental, but this is just delicious. Glam Rock, eighties electro disco and so VERY camp! Welcome back Marc Almond

After a few years of concept and slower albums Marc returns to his swansong popsongs with an alternative edge. His best work in years.

Enjoyable album, some highlights but couldn't compare with the Velvet Trail which is the album I had bought previously and played over and over
