Various Artists | Ghosts Of Christmas Past/Chantons Noël

New CD release of the classic compilation album released on ultra chic Belgian indie label Les Disques du Crepuscule on December 2 1981. Ghosts Of Christmas Past/Chantons Noël featured exclusive festive tracks from the international avant garde and new wave, as well as the celebrated Factory Records and Postcard rosters.
The album now features nine bonus tracks drawn from later editions of the album released between 1982 and 1986. These include seasonal contributions from The Pale Fountains, Antena, The French Impressionists, Mikado, Winston Tong and The Arcadians (aka French pop polymath Louis Philippe), as well as extra tracks from Paul Haig and The Durutti Column. The booklet features original artwork by Benoît Hennebert and Jean-François Octave, as well as a facsimile of the LP insert featuring Christmas postcards, and detailed liner notes. The original 'bauble' cover art by Hennebert is widely recognised as one of his finest designs.
This new edition has been digitally remastered from the original master tapes, and features 70 minutes of material. Most of the featured tracks remain unavailable elsewhere.
