Big names, small names, blockbusters and obscurities – we’ve got them covered.

Peter Murphy - Love Hysteria re-issue

Wednesday January 29, 2014

Whilst collating the masters for the new Cherry Red re-issue of Peter Murphy’s 1988 second album Love Hysteria it was evident that not only was there a digital master (used for the original CD / Vinyl cut) but also an analogue master. To obtain a high resolution digital re-master the analogue source was preferable but it wasn’t evident that this (previously unused) analogue master actually had a slightly edited version of Indigo Eyes. So essentially this is a different version of the original album. To complicate matters further, the 1988 CD versions of the UK and US editions also vary, on the US issue Socrates the Python has a slightly longer refrain than its UK counterpart, but we opted to stick with the original UK version for this re-issue.
