The celebration of Erasure's (Andy Bell and Vince Clarke) 30th anniversary continues in 2016 with 180-gram vinyl editions of their classic albums Wild! (1989), Chorus (1991) and I Say I Say I Say (1994).
Wild! is Erasure's fourth studio album and the one that spawned the classic singles "Blue Savannah," "Drama!" and "Star." It continued the group's mainstream success, following their breakthrough album The Innocents the year before. The band were, by this time, a household name, with Wild! becoming their second consecutive No. 1 album in the UK, going double platinum, and its four singles all hitting the Top 20.
Erasure is one of the UK's most enduring award-winning songwriting duos. The BRIT and Ivor Novello winning pair have released a staggering number of albums, including 5 UK No. 1's and 17 top 10 singles (35 singles charted in the UK Top 40). Caitlin Moran of The Times exclaimed, "Let's face it – there is nothing Kraftwerk did that Erasure didn't do better, for longer, and while wearing a blue sequinned cowboy hat and chaps."
