Gary Numan is a pioneer, and his influence on so many artists is unmistakable and grand. Gary’s style connects him with fans of multiple genres... electronic, industrial, indie-rock, metal, etc. He remains an innovator, and his fan base continues to grow. Dance was Gary Numan’s fifth studio album and was released in 1981. We are excited to reissue this album on double purple vinyl. For this new edition, the tracks have been mastered over three sides for improved fidelity and the fourth side contains relevant singles, B-sides and an out-take. Additionally, the previously unreleased, full length version of “Moral” has been used to close out the original album. Dance makes a notable effort by Gary Numan to step away from the synth-pop he was famous for, and experiment with something a little more jazzier, saxophones and all. Guests on the album include guitarist Rob Dean and (fretless) bassist/saxophonist Mick Karn of Japan, drummer Roger Taylor of Queen, keyboardist Roger Mason of Australian band Models, and Canadian alternative musician Nash the Slash. From Diffuser FM: The first noticeable thing about Dance, is the funk-driven bass of “Slowcar to China,” it reeks of the influence of the band Japan, who themselves had gone through a transformation from pseudo-glamsters into a refined Roxy Music-inspired band. Numan also made sure he had a new image to go with the new sounds. Gone were the futuristic inspired threads, replaced by the classic traditionalism of a smart suit and tie. “Night Talk” uses electronics but in a much more minimalist way with funk bass and rhythm box carrying most of the weight while other atmospheres and Numan’s vocals ride atop. Elements of David Bowie’s famous Berlin period are obviously part of Numan’s influence here, painting styles found on Low and Heroes into the mix. The single “She’s Got Claws” preceded the album and turned out to be another hit for Numan, hitting the U.K. Top 10 that summer. One of the album’s catchiest tracks, it bridges the sound he was leaving behind with the style he was now mining to good effect. “There are still people trying to work out what a genius Gary Numan is.” – Prince“I was always impressed by the way Gary Numan found his own voice–and it was unusual–but it was unmistakably him and boldly him. I see me doing what I learned from him.” -Trent Reznor, Nine Inch Nails“Gary Numan proves music has always been really inventive for the masses” – Lady Gaga

Purple 140 gram vinyl sounds great.
The product is produced with care.
Sounds & finished far better than the original 1981 pressing. No noise or cracking on my copy.
Comes with a download code for the 320mbps MP3 which again sounds very good.
Well worth adding to the collection.
