PLEASE READ!

Always include both your first and last name when placing an order. Otherwise, the order will not be processed.

Notice regarding shipping and transit times:

Due to the current global situation, transit times for domestic and international packages has increased. 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. Transit times of other packages that may have arrived sooner have no bearing on how fast or slow the next package will be received. Tracking numbers do not always update once a package leaves the USA. I have no control over this or insight as to when your package may arrive. If this is a problem, please do not place an order.​

The cost of international shipping is the same for 1 or 2 CD's and then 3 to 8 CD's. At this time, I am only providing international shipping for select countries as there have been some territories in which deliveries are restricted or continue to be very problematic. Thank you.

Product Details

Release date 2/18/2022

After several successful years as pioneers of the New Romantic movement, Visage return in 1984 with several new band members and a new direction. Steve Strange and Rusty Egan welcome Steve and Gary Barnacle, along with Andy Barnett, to create their new sound. Beat Boy takes a harder-edged dancefloor approach, adding industrial sounds and boosting the focus on guitars and beats. The first single Love Glove transitions from the past to the future with a smooth and familiar Visage melody and dancefloor hook. The follow up single Beat Boy takes full advantage of the Fairlight synthesizer to create an aggressive beat layered with various sounds and samples.
Beat Boy was originally released in select territories on a 'Special Cassette Remix', taking most of the album versions and remixing or extending the songs exclusively for the tape format. This new reissue from the original master tape presents this special version for the first time on the CD format as the 'Cassette Remix Edition'. In addition, five bonus tracks have been appended, including the 'Extended Dance Mix' of Beat Boy, originally only available on a rare promotional 12" single. A previously unreleased 7" version of the sublime Yesterday's Shadow was discovered in the Universal tape archive and is included here. The CD booklet includes a recent interview with Steve Barnacle giving a track-by-track commentary on the making of the album.
