The Pretenders Get Close on 180g Import LP
In correlation with the release of The Pretenders' Vinyl Collection 1979-1999, Demon Records is offering eight individual vinyl issues of the band's albums from the same period including Pretenders (1980), Pretenders II (1981), Learning to Crawl (1984), Get Close (1986), Packed! (1990), Last of the Independents (1994), The Isle of View (2LP) (1995) and Viva El Amor! (1999).
The Isle Of View and Viva El Amor! are appearing on the vinyl format for the first time. All of the albums were cut from the latest digital remasters and are pressed on high-quality 180-gram heavyweight black vinyl.
The band's fourth album, Get Close, was originally released in November 1986 and again featured guitarist Robbie McIntosh, but with a new rhythm section comprised of T.M Stevens (bass) and Blair Cunningham (drums). It was preceded by the hit single "Don't Get Me Wrong" and is home to further favorites like "Baby," "Hymn To Her (She Will Always Carry On)" and a cover of Jimi Hendrix's "Room Full of Mirrors."
