Communards

The Communards seminal debut album is to be reissued on its 35th Anniversary this autumn by London Recordings. The duo’s iconic ‘Hi-NRG’ cover of Don’t Leave Me This Way gets a new remix from 7th Heaven as part of an expanded CD/Digital release, and there will be a limited edition vinyl release of the album, all available from 3rd December.

The Communards - Celebrating 35 years since the release of ‘Communards’

The CD and digital formats have been expanded to include some rarities, fan favourites and previously unreleased material. These include Don’t Leave Me This Way (Gotham City mix part two) which Coles calls “my favourite thing that Jimmy and I did” and fan favourite Disenchanted (dance) remixed here by Mike Thorne. Also included is the only radio session the duo ever recorded with Janice Long in October 1985 on which they debuted previously unpublished tracks and the demo version of Summertime, the only recording in existence of this collaboration with Sarah Jane Morris.

"Communards"

To revisit the duo’s debut LP today is a wonderful reminder of just how special and transformative pop music can be. Take Disenchanted’s melancholic pulse; the delicate, moonlit flourishes of La Dolora; the clear message in their reading of jazz standard Loverman and of course, the soaring, evergreen rush of their cover of Gamble and Huff’s Don’t Leave Me This Way – number one in the UK for six weeks, the biggest selling single of 1986 and still a song that can send joy pulsing through the veins of generations not even born when the pair first stormed the charts.
