A Certain Ratio | I'd Like To See You Again

Factory Benelux presents a new CD edition of the 3rd studio album by Manchester postpunk funk group A Certain Ratio, originally released by Factory Records in October 1982.
I'd Like To See You Again was the last Ratio album to feature the original quintet of Donald Johnson, Jeremy Kerr, Martin Moscrop, Simon Topping and Peter Terrell, and saw the band move from the ethereal textures of Sextet towards a more stripped-down sound, influenced by the Latin and electrofunk scene in New York. Stand out tracks include rubber-thumbed bass workout Touch, vocoderized percussion excursion Show Case and the minimalist, muscular grooves of Guess Who, which was also issued as a 12" single on Factory Benelux.
This remastered CD features 5 bonus tracks, including the 7" and 12" versions of dancefloor classic Knife Slits Water, flipside Tumba Rhumba, an exclusive remix of Guess Who, and underrated single I Need Someone Tonite, issued in 1983 and the first Ratio record to feature keys player Andy Connell. Mailorder copies come in FBN slipcase.
