The Divine Comedy | Venus, Cupid, Folly and Time [23CD/DVD Boxset]
n 1990 Neil Hannon started recording and releasing under the name The Divine Comedy. Thirty years and twelve great albums later, Hannon is rightly adjudged one of the finest singer songwriters of his generation. To celebrate, Divine Comedy Records are remasteringand reissuing nine of the band’s classic albums. The nine reissued albums have been remastered from the original tapes at the legendary Abbey Road Studios by mastering engineer Frank Arkwright (Blur, The Smiths). Overseeing the audio throughout the campaign is engineer / mixer / producer Guy Massey, whose work on the Beatles Stereo Remasters won him a Grammy Award. The CDs consist of two discs: the remastered original album, with asecond CD of B-sides, demos and alternate versions lovingly curated by Neil Hannon, much of which has never been heard before. The CD release of ‘A Short Album About Love’ comes with a DVD of ‘A Short Film About A Short Album About Love’, a previously unreleased 50-minute film of the Shepherds Bush Empire concert at which A Short Album About Love’ was recorded. Each CD comes with a booklet of photos, credits and extensive liner notes written by Neil covering the context and inspiration behind the album and its songs.
