More Reissues Cutting Through

with one comment

A Flock of Seagulls aren’t the only ’80s act getting a reissue from Cherry Pop. The label is prepping May 24 reissues of the first two records by another one-hit-wonder-with-a-whole-lot-more, Cutting Crew.

Though they’re best known for “(I Just) Died in Your Arms,” the band enjoyed two other Top 40 hits (“One for the Mockingbird” and “I’ve Been in Love Before,” a Top 10 single) and a minorly-successful sophomore release in their day. Cherry Pop is releasing both of these records – Broadcast (1986) and The Scattering (1989) – with a handful of bonus cuts each. Notably, Broadcast includes the original U.S. mixes of those big hits (as opposed to the now more-common U.K. lineup, which used three alternate mixes) and some live cuts; The Scattering includes three unreleased demos for all the Cutting Crew fans out there. And both have new artwork and newly-penned liner notes by CC vocalist Nick Van Eede.
