THE HOUSE OF LOVE were one of the most successful and critically acclaimed bands to grace Creation Records back in the late 1980s. Their eponymous debut album was cited as one of the best albums of 1988 by music magazines and Indie fans alike.
This deluxe edition of THE HOUSE OF LOVE that replicates the tracklisting of the Cherry Red CD version released earlier this year offers the band’s complete Creation recordings from 1987-1988, together with a raft of previously unissued bonus material. The package boasts all their Creation Records singles, from the original version of ‘Shine On’, ‘Real Animal’ and the US favourite ‘Christine’ (which reached #8 in the Modern Rock chart there) to their final single for the label, ‘Destroy The Heart’. along with nineteen previously unavailable HOUSE OF LOVE demos, including two exclusive Guy Chadwick songs ‘Hold On Me’ and ‘Modern World’, which were never released! Also making their debut on LP is the rare 7” album freebie (two demos) and the ‘Flexidisc’ version of ‘Shine On’, together with Guy’s original demo of this song which eventually gave them a sizeable hit.
