Artist of the Month: Paul Young
August 1, 2015
In the middle 80s, Paul Young became one of the biggest pop stars in the world, creating a body of work that endures to this day. His incredible career is now chronicled within Tomb Of Memories: The CBS Years (1982-1994), a 4CD bookset of classic tracks, alternate versions/mixes and live/acoustic performances. The bookset will be released on 21st August.
The 4 discs showcase Young’s recording career with CBS Records from his debut album ‘No Parlez’ through to ‘The Crossing’. Across these discs there are 9 unreleased versions, 8 tracks which are new to CD and 3 songs – Find One Voice, Coralie and Souls Unknown which have never before been heard. The material has been meticulously remastered from the original tapes, in a process overseen by Paul. The package also contains a 24 page booklet, complete with a foreword from Young himself, alongside rare and unseen images, and a career-spanning retrospective essay, penned by music writer Daryl Easlea.
