ABOUT THIS ITEM
Continuing Edsel’s reissue programme of Everything But The Girl’s first four albums. The breezy folk-jazz of ‘Eden’ was followed by the politicised electric guitar pop of gold-selling ‘Love Not Money’ (1985). the album was a more ‘indie’ proposition from its first cut onwards, the none-more-jangly 'When All’s Well'. Sounding not unlike something Lloyd Cole and the Commotions or The Smiths might have made, it sounded a desire for EBTG to be heard above the bigger crowds they were beginning to play to.
In a beautifully presented 2xCD casebound book, put together with the full involvement of Ben and Tracey, and featuring a newly-written note by the couple, along with all the lyrics, ‘Love Not Money’ features eleven bonus tracks: 5 non-album single B-sides, 3 previously unreleased home demos and 3 contemporary previously unreleased BBC radio session recordings, personally selected by Ben.
