PLEASE READ!

Notice regarding shipping and transit times:

Due to the current global situation and holiday season, transit times for domestic and foreign packages has increased. Domestic packages which normally take 2-3 days have at times taken a few weeks to arrive since the holiday backlog. Foreign packages that normally take 1-3 weeks have taken as much as three months (or more) to arrive. While some packages are still arriving fairly quickly, I ask that anyone placing an order to please be patient.

The cost of international shipping is the same for 1 or 2 CD's, and then 3 to 8 CD's. Tracking numbers do not always update once a package leaves the USA. At this time I am only providing international shipping for select countries as there have been some territories in which deliveries continue to be very problematic. Thank you.

UPDATE: There has been an increasing amount of buyers contacting me within a relatively short time asking me where their package is. Be aware that if you received a package or two in relatively normal time, that doesn't mean all packages will arrive that fast. I have no control on how long it will take or if the tracking number hasn't updated. Buyers will need to continue to be patient and wait for their packages to arrive. The postal service has been heavily impacted since early 2020 and there doesn't appear to be resolution in sight. Please remain patient.

Product Details

Primarily known for their 1981 UK hit 'I’m In Love with a German Film Star', The Passions were much more than one song. Their third and final album, Sanctuary, shows further growth in the band’s development from stark post-punk to classy sophistication. The single 'Jump for Joy' opens the album in a new direction, adding keyboards and danceability to compliment Barbara Gogan’s beautiful voice. The title track, also a single, takes a more serious tone while still retaining a memorable hook. Encompassing various styles, Sanctuary will take you from the frantic excitement of 'Your Friend' and the pop sensibility of 'Love is Essential', to the experimental 'Cars Driven Fast' and the obsessive 'Hold On Don’t Go'.

Included in the generous 9 bonus tracks are B sides, the non-album single 'Africa Mine', and several live tracks, including a stellar rendition of 'I’m In Love with a German Film Star'. This debut CD appearance of Sanctuary has been dynamically remastered from original master tapes and provides a comprehensive overview of The Passions’ 1982 output.
