Jimmy Somerville - Suddenly Last Summer: 10th Anniversary Expanded Edition (CD)

$ 18.99


Release Date: 11/20/20

This is strictly limited, 1,000 copy edition, an expanded re-issue of Jimmy Somerville's long out-of-print 'Suddenly Last Summer' album into a definitive 19-track 10th Anniversary celebratory package. It now includes two stellar live concert recordings of 'Motherless Child' and 'I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself', two dance-floor remixes of 'Motherless Child' and 'People Are Strange', and an emotive alternate version of 'By Your Side'. Both the 'People Are Strange' remix and the alternate version of 'By Your Side' are previously unreleased, as are the two songs 'The Gal From Joes' and 'Bent In The Bush' which were recorded during the original album sessions and remained unheard... until now!

The extent of Jimmy Somerville's unique vocal artistry is searingly evident on this acoustic showcase of some of his personal favourite songs which he succeeds, in spades, in making his very own. An emotional tour de force and a glittering jewel amidst his extensive back catalogue; Jimmy has always been an adept and talented creator of song; in 'Suddenly Last Summer', he also became a legendary curator of song!

'Suddenly Last Summer' is a stunning collection of evocative cover versions in simple, beautiful and surprising acoustic arrangements. They are emotive, tender and intimate interpretations by one of pop music's foremost song stylists, backed by crack musicians, led by pianist and producer Andrew Worboys.

'Suddenly Last Summer' is an eclectic mix of modern classics reflecting Jimmy Somerville's own broad musical tastes including Blondie's 'Hanging On The Telephone', Dusty Springfield's 'I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself', The Doors' 'People Are Strange' and Nina Simone's 'Black Is The Colour Of My True Love' among many other classics and songbook standards.
