The House Of Love / Debut album expanded to 3CDs in November

The House Of Love / Debut album gets 3CD release

The critically acclaimed 1988 eponymous debut from British indie band The House Of Love will be reissued in November as in three-disc deluxe edition

Cherry Red Records have put together a package that combines the original album with a second disc crammed full of non-album singles, B-sides and rarities; along with a further disc of 19 previously unissued demo recordings (including a Guy Chadwick solo demo of Shine On).

Shine On (Demo Version) and Christine (Demo Version) append the album on disc one, having been originally available only on a bonus 7″ single that was a freebie with the first 3000 copies of the record. Similarly, another rarity in the form of Shine On (Fuck Version) – given away via flexidisc to House Of Love gig goers at the time – makes an appearance on disc two.

Apart from the demos of the third disc (all from cassette) and the vinyl described above, all other recordings are remastered from original tapes. This set will come as a Digipak.

    Cherry Red did a good job with the first House Of Love album. I’d be delighted if they could tackle the second one – known as Fontana or The Butterfly Album. You’d need three CDs and this is what I think should be included.

    I’d love to see a Fontana-era B-side compilation that includes all the many, many Fontana B-sides.

  4. graham stuart says:

    I can’t wait for this….I agree with the earlier poster and also wish that the FONTANA Butterfly album would get the same treatment

  5. Tim says:

    In my opinion, the smaller labels are doing really well with reissues. The Demon/Edsel stuff is great and priced right. Domino’s Orange Juice complete was really nice. Keep it up! I trust Cherry Red will do this one right!

    I really hope the Fontana (Butterfly) album gets a similar treatment, as this to me was their masterpeice!
