Vinyl180 continue their Thompson Twins vinyl re-releases with a reissue of the band’s fifth album Here’s To Future Days on purple vinyl.
The label state that this has been remastered, although SDE didn’t think the Quick Step and Side Kick vinyl reissue from the same label sounded any different to the original.
This is pressed on 180g purple vinyl. The album was the last from the Thompson Twins as a trio and marked their commercial decline in the UK (despite being co-produced by Nile Rodgers) with no what you might call ‘major’ hits, although the 45s performed much better in America where Lay Your Hands On Me and King For A Day did both reach the top 10.
There’s not much more to say about this, other than to point out that it is a least quite cheap at £14 in the UK right now. Here’s To Future Days will be reissued on purple vinyl on 22 September 2017.
