Various Artists | The Fruit Of The Original Sin

The first double CD release of the classic 1981 compilation album The Fruit of the Original Sin, originally released on chic Belgian indie label Les Disques du Crepuscule.
Released as a deluxe double LP package in November 1981, The Fruit Of The Original Sin featured 24 exclusive tracks from the international avant garde and new wave, as well as the celebrated Factory Records roster. Then, as now, the contributing artists include William S. Burroughs, The Durutti Column, Paul Haig, Tuxedomoon, Wim Mertens, DNA, Richard Jobson, Marine, The French Impressionists and Peter Gordon. The programme also includes an extended interview with acclaimed French author Marguerite Duras.
The album now features 8 bonus tracks, including both sides of long-lost singles by Paul Haig (Soon/Summertime) and noted New York visual artist Lawrence Weiner (Deutsche Angst/Where It Came From), as well as a rare track (Matters Of Theory) by The Lost Jockey, the modernist ensemble featuring composer Andrew Poppy.
The 12 page facsimile booklet features original artwork by Benoît Hennebert and Jean-François Octave, as well as archive images and detailed liner notes. The original cover art by Hennebert is widely recognised as one of his very best designs.
This new double CD edition has been digitally remastered from the original master tapes, and features 125 minutes of material. Most of the tracks featured here remain unavailable elsewhere. The CD follows on the success of our 2006 re-release of the 1980 Crepuscule compilation From Brussels With Love (LTMCD 2469).
