"The D.H. Lawrence of pop", that's how Jazz Butcher Pat Fish summed up In Embrace singer Gary Knight back in 1983. One can see why; Too flows with yearning that burns and lust that busts. In Embrace here strip everything back and wrap each song only in its essential instrumentation. A rousing rhythm guitar, a looping bass line, a haunting keyboard or hypnotic percussion. A minimal approach which yields maximum intimacy. Knight's emotion given motion by the raw rhythms of drummer Joby Palmer (before he played with Eyeless In Gaza) or the expressive guitar and keyboards of Richard Formby. Now released for the first time on CD, this 'Grande Edition' remastered and expanded release also features nine extra tracks including three ultra-rare singles: the breath-taking 12-inch extended version of 'Shouting In Cafés", the infectious infatuation of "Your Heaven Scent" and the hypnotic, doomed love-list of "The Living Daylights", here, in both its single edit format and also in its head-spinningly visceral nine-minute original uncut mix. Re-mastered by original producer John A. Rivers at Woodbine Street Studio, July 2018. 16-page booklet featuring the complete lyrics and extensive sleeve notes.
