Blue Orchids | The Greatest Hit

Following on from the success of our two Blue Orchids CDs earlier this year --The Sleeper (LTMCD 2340) and From Severe to Serene (LTMCD 2354)-- LTM are pleased to announce the first CD release of their classic album The Greatest Hit, which topped the indie charts in the UK on release in 1981.
Formed by creative lynchpin Martin Bramah and Una Baines after the pair left The Fall in 1979, the Blue Orchids released a string of classic singles on the Rough Trade label, including Disney Boys, Work and the Agents Of Change 12"ep, as well as the classic album The Greatest Hit in 1981. The LTM edition includes all ten album tracks, together with nine bonus tracks taken from contemporary singles and eps. These include the tracks Work, Disney Boys, The Flood and Long Night Out. Also included is an ultra rare version of All Tomorrow's Parties, performed by Nico and produced by the late legendary Martin Hannett. Between 1981 and 1982 the Blue Orchids frequently performed as Nico's backing band, and guitarist Rick Goldstraw and drummer Toby appear on this recording. This digitally remastered set runs for 74 minutes. The booklet includes detailed sleevenotes and the original album artwork.
