LOVE and MONEY had popped out their debut album "All You Need Is..." on Mercury Records in the UK in 1986 to critical acclaim but only slight public interest. All of that changed for the Scottish soul rockers with their sophisticated and smart 2nd album.

"Strange Kind Of Love" was UK released on LP, MC and CD in October 1988 on Fontana SFLP 7, SFMC 7 and 836 49-2 respectively. In keeping with the times -both the cassette and the CD carried a lone bonus track "Scapegoat" to entice people away from the 10-track vinyl version. It was also produced by GARY KATZ of STEELY DAN fame and carried the then desirable DDD code on the rear (a Full Digital Recording). I picked up on the title track's CD single and have loved the album ever since - even hoping it might one day get a Universal 2CD DELUXE EDITION treatment...but we settle for something close.

Which brings us to this UK released April 2010 reissue. "Strange Kind Of Love" by LOVE and MONEY on Cherry Red CDMRED442 (Barcode 5013929144224) is an 'Expanded' single CD Remaster which offers fans the 11-track CD version with a further 6 bonus demos added on and plays out as follows (79:21 minutes):

1. Halleluiah Man
2. Shape Of Things To Come
3. Strange Kind Of Love
4. Axis Of Love
5. Jocelyn Square
6. Walk The Last Mile
7. Razorsedge
8. Inflammable
9. Up Escalator
10. Avalanche
11. Scapegoat

BONUS TRACKS:

13. Walk The Last Mile With You (Demo)

It pains me to say that this gem of an album housed some of the best peices of music from the late eighties that was barely heard by the masses. True music fans heard the single 'Halleluiah Man' and then set about finding this album. Released in 1988 it was the follow up to 1986's 'All You Need Is..Love and Money' which spawned the much played singles 'River Of People' and 'The Candybar Express'. This set was obviously more sophisticated, a top producer in Gary Katz was drafted in to bring a more produced sound rather than the raw edge of the debut.

The songs were more melodic and the lyrics more attuned to everyday people's experiences.
'The Shape Of Things To Come' is a beautiful ballad of the highest quality, heartfelt lyrics which depict the absolute helplessness of the heart when without the object of its desire.
'A Strange Kind Of Love', another single is a cracking dance track, not that my local DJ ever played it, he was far too scared that he'd clear the dancefloor, better to stick with the boring manufactured drivvle that was around!
'Axis Of Love' is a clever use of words to describe the turbulence surrounding the struggles of keeping a relationship. On to another single
'Jocelyn Square' where we get the best lyrics " I still think about you, but only really when it rains" In Scotland it rains a lot!
'Walk The Last Mile' is another slow, moody ballad where we find songwriter James Grant in absolute awe of someone, " In your light I crumble" "Your at the centre of everything I do, wherever I go, I'll walk the last mile with you" A modern day poet indeed!

After many years of being unavailable, this wonderfully atmospheric album finds its way back onto the shop shelves. All credit to Cherry Red Records then for giving it a new lease of life. I have one issue though. The original album had the lyrics to the songs but this time round, they've been omitted. Why, oh why, do they do this to us? They have researchers who look into these sorts of things, so why is the booklet now coming up short? How much more would it have cost to include a couple of extra pages to accommodate the lyrics? It's really annoying. To be fair though, the same omissions have been made with ELO and Alan Parsons Project rereleases, so other record companies are guilty of this practice too. Perhaps someone from the record companies might read this one day and respond accordingly on future reissues. By the way, 5 stars here of course for the music itself.

Brilliant album, I hadn't heard of this band until I was shown a video on you tube by a work colleague I loved it so much I went out the next day and brought their entire available back catalogue.
I can really recommend.

I bought this album after hearing 'Halleluiah Man' in my local pub back in '89. Every track is instantly likeable, a rare quality in an eleven track album. For as long as I've had it, it has been the one album I can honestly say I would select to live on a desert island if I could only take one. Good lyrics when you get past the brilliant sounds, buy it, believe me! When you have heard this you will want more and the other L&M albums are also very good but this is my favorite.Easily worth six stars
