Duran Duran Seven And The Ragged Tiger on 180g 2LP
2010 Remastered Version with 4 Bonus Remixes!
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. Breakout 1982 second effort Rio exhibited a harder, more dance-worthy sound than their eponymous debut, built around the band's unforgettable melodies and Simon Le Bon's creative lyrics, and it turned the English act into worldwide superstars.
1983 follow-up Seven And The Ragged Tiger moved even further toward the dance-pop arena and marked their third album in three years time. It stands as the band's only No. 1 album in the UK to date and was the final studio release from the band's original line-up until 2004 reunion record Astronaut. Home to the trio of stylized singles "Union of the Snake," "New Moon on Monday" and "The Reflex."
Vocalist Simon Le Bon explained that Seven And The Ragged Tiger, "is an adventure story about a little commando team. 'The Seven' is for us – the five band members and the two managers – and 'the Ragged Tiger' is success. Seven people running after success. It's ambition. That's what it's about."
2010 remastered version pressed on 180g double vinyl featuring one LP comprised of the original 9-track album and a second LP with four bonus remixes.
