Cyndi Lauper She's So Unusual: A 30th Anniversary Celebration on LP + Download Card w/ Bonus Tracks
Music icon Cyndi Lauper will commemorate the anniversary of her groundbreaking, record-setting debut album with She’s So Unusual: A 30th Anniversary Celebration which will be released through Legacy Recordings. “I’m always looking forward, trying to do something that’s new and different,” said Lauper. “But every once in a while it’s good to look back and celebrate. I’ve always been proud of this album, with the statement we made and, most importantly, what it has meant to my fans, I want to thank them for all the years of support,” said Lauper.
She’s So Unusual is a colorful portrait of a unique and multifaceted talent. The album, produced by Rick Chertoff and featuring Rob Hyman and Eric Bazilian of the Philadelphia band the Hooters, includes some of Lauper’s most well-known songs and perennial radio favorites such as “Girls Just Want To Have Fun,” “Time After Time,” “She Bop,” “Money Changes Everything,” and “All Through the Night.” She’s So Unusual turned Lauper into a household name and made music history when she became the first female artist to have four top 10 singles on a debut album. The release went on to sell over 16 million copies worldwide and won Lauper a Grammy Award for Best New Artist and an MTV Video Music Award for Best Female Video.
The album received kudos from all quarters. “Cyndi Lauper sounds like no other singer on the current scene,” wrote Kurt Loder in his 1984 Rolling Stone review. “A wild and wonderful skyrocket of a voice… Lauper’s extraordinary pipes connect with the right material, the results sound like the beginning of a whole new golden age.” The album has influenced generations of boundary-pushing musicians since its release, evident in everything from the ska-infused punk of No Doubt, the attitude of Pink, the infectious pop of Katy Perry, the fluorescent personality of Nicki Minaj and, of course, in Lady Gaga’s fashion.
She’s So Unusual: A 30th Anniversary Celebration is the ultimate tribute to one of the greatest albums of all time and now includes an accompanying download with the three bonus tracks: "Girls Just Want To Have Fun" (2014 Yolanda Be Cool Remix), "Time After Time" (2014 NERVO Back In Time Remix) and "Time After Time" (2014 Bent Collective Remix). For the 30th Anniversary Celebration, Cyndi oversaw all of the artwork and worked with Legacy to create 3 unique packages with 3 new covers for each configuration (2CD Deluxe, 1CD & 1LP).
