One of the most revered and respected pop groups of the '80s, Eurythmics, with over 20 international hits and 80 million albums sold, is in the spotlight once again, both for their Rock & Roll Hall of Fame nomination and the impending re-release of their eight studio albums on vinyl. Spanning their entire career, the albums will be released by Sony/Legacy between April and October 2018, starting with In The Garden (1981), Sweet Dreams (1983) and Touch (1983) in April, followed by Be Yourself Tonight (1985), Revenge (1986) and Savage (1987) in July and We Too Are One (1989) and Peace (1999) in October.
The eight Eurythmics studio albums being released on vinyl in 2018 will all feature the original artwork, illustrations and liner notes. As for the new vinyl releases, Dave Stewart assures, "They will sound better. In the archives, we have the original half-inch masters, which have a fantastic sound. That's what we're going from, not the digital remasters where the sound has been compressed."
Eurythmics built on the breakout success of Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) and its runaway single of the same name with the equally as enthralling Touch later the same year, their third studio effort overall and first U.K. No. 1. Propelled by the trio of hit singles "Who's That Girl?", "Right by Your Side" and "Here Comes the Rain Again," the platinum-certified album found the duo at the top of the British new wave heap mixing sensual soul and synth-pop in an unmistakably new way.
