New Order - substance 1987

Hello and welcome back... If there was ever an award for legend status of an album it would have to be this album. Back in the late 80s I became a bike riding nut... I rode everywhere and to ride you need good tunes.. I nearly wore this tape out, packed with massive dance tunes, it enabled me to get up the meanest of hills.
New Order formed after the death of frontman "Ian Curtis" (Joy Division) and while continuing after his death, a fan came up to the lead singer after a gig and quoted "You sing like shit" so the band said "Screw you" and started to produce dance music.
Substance 1987 is a 2 album compilation of  12" mixes of previous hits and their b sides, with the new single "True Faith" and the B side "1963" and was one of the first albums released in DAT ( digital audio tape ) format. The singles "Blue Monday", "Shellshock" (from the pretty in pink movie ),"Bizarre love Triangle" and "The Perfect Kiss" were all in this album and it sold over 1 million records in the U.S. alone ... HUGE .. My favorite song would have to be "Kiss of Death" with its pulsing synths and the occasional frog sound ... aahhh love the froggies.
