Too-Rye-Ay, As It Should Have Sounded

    To tie in with the 40th anniversary of the multi-platinum selling album, we present ‘Too-Rye-Ay, as it should have sounded’.

    Kevin Rowland was never happy with the final mix of the album, despite its huge commercial success. So with Helen O’Hara, and Pete Schwier they decided to mix it again. In recent interviews Kevin has stated…

    “The songs and performances are great, but I always felt the mixes could be better. It’s my most successful album, but it doesn’t sound as good as the others”

    “This is the director’s cut and it’s how it should have sounded…”

    The album’s cover has also been re-modelled, using the preferred image from the Come On Eileen single sleeve.

    My Beauty (RSD22 EDITION)

      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".
