About this item
THIS IS A RECORD STORE DAY 2022 EXCLUSIVE, LIMITED TO ONE PER PERSON.
Translucent vinyl with pink splatter edition. Originally released in 1999, 'My Beauty' was the second solo album from Dexys/Dexys Midnight Runners' lead singer Kevin Rowland. The album was mostly unfairly received by critics at the time, but in the years since has come to enjoy cult status.
This vinyl reissue is presented on translucent vinyl with pink splatter and the originally intended track-listing. 'My Beauty' comprises twelve cover songs, personally chosen by Kevin and adapted to make the lyrics more directly reflective of his life. The result was an autobiographical concept record about his battle and recovery from addiction, and his own struggle with self-esteem, exemplified by his incredible version of George Benson / Whitney Houston classic "The Greatest Love Of All".
