Two CDs. Digitally remastered and expanded collection of 22 original songs recorded for Julian Temple's 1986 cult classic film Absolute Beginners. This release marks the first time that all 22 songs have been available on CD, previous versions being highlights only. The album features three songs by David Bowie that weren't included on any of his studio albums, along with exclusive tracks recorded for the film by Sade, The Style Council, Ray Davies and Jerry Dammers and more. The soundtrack was much more warmly received than the film was at the time, while the reviews for the film were mixed, the album had good write-ups in the best selling 'inkies' of the day NME & Sounds. Clive Langer and Alan Winstanley, whose many credits include No. 1 singles for Madness and Dexys Midnight Runners, produced the album and it also features arrangements by Gil Evans, widely recognised as one of the key orchestrators in jazz, acclaimed for his collaborations with Miles Davis. The album features four tracks that are unavailable elsewhere; Sade's 'Killer Blow', Ray Davies first solo single 'Quiet Life', Riot City', an eight-and-a-half minute Jazz instrumental that marked a first solo outing for Jerry Dammers and an extended version of The Style Council single 'Have You Ever Had It Blue?'. All four are unique to this album.
