Duran Duran Rio on Limited Edition 2LP

Duran Duran, the premier band of the video generation and a pioneer of the New Romantic era, thrived longer and sold more records than any of their peers. Produced by Colin Thurston (of David Bowie fame), 1982 magnum opus Rio is the group’s second album and is as representative of the 1980's as it gets, at its absolute best. The release exhibits a harder, more dance-worthy sound than its predecessor, built around the band's unforgettable melodies and Simon Le Bon's creative lyrics.

The perfect soundtrack for dance and romance, Rio is a fusion of style and substance that even three decades after its original release remains as listenable and danceable as ever. Through the sheer quality of its infectious synth-pop singles - "Rio," "Hungry Like The Wolf," and "Save A Prayer" and their accompanying videos which were heavily rotated on MTV - Rio saw the British group break into the U.S. once and for all, with the album spending a staggering 129 weeks on the Billboard 200 chart.

Duran Duran became the first group to shoot a music video on location. With director Russell Mulcahy the band filmed three ground-breaking clips in Sri Lanka for "Save A Prayer," "Hungry Like The Wolf" and "Lonely In Your Nightmare," that not only helped to give them a truly global fan-base but also marked the start of a new era on music television. Later they filmed the video for title track "Rio" in Antigua - which became an MTV classic, and spawned some of the most iconic and enduring images of the band.
