Edsel Records is proud to announce its reissue programme of all three of The Beat’s albums, each in Deluxe 2 CD + DVD digipaks, featuring the original albums along with all the non-album A- and B-sides, the many 12” mixes and live tracks, as well as the best of their BBC radio sessions. The DVDs feature the singles promo videos, Top Of The Pops performances and bonus appearances from ITV shows and documentaries.
Second album “Wha’ppen” (1980, # 3) features the hits “Too Nice To Talk To”, “Doors Of Your Heart”, “All Out To Get You”, “Drowning”, and “Hit It” as well as 14 bonus tracks (many on CD for the first time), including four previously unreleased BBC radio sessions. The DVD features five promo videos, four TOTP appearances, and live performances and interviews from the “World In Action” documentary “A Statistic, A Reminder”.
The booklet features an individual note especially written by Rhoda Dakar of The Bodysnatchers, along with the lyrics and photos, memorabilia and ephemera from the band’s own collection.
