Limited Edition Contains 2 bonus tracks
Pressed on cream colour vinyl
Initial copies include repro poster for the “Cast A Long Shadow” single

The third Monochrome Set album is one of the classic, undiscovered albums of the early ‘80s. Witty, eloquent, sophisticated pop. This album remains as fresh today as when it was recorded in 1982 . The hugely influential Eligible Bachelors is a tour de force of wit and musical imagination. It features some of the funniest songs ever committed to vinyl, kicking off with “Jet Set Junta,” which, alongside “The Ruling Class,” pillories the neuroses of the wealthy. “The Mating Game” is also deeply amusing as a cad’s cynical guide to the opposite sex, with lyrics like, “Blond, brunette or redhead, black, yellow or white/They taste the same, in the mating game.” But it’s not all jokes. “The Midas Touch” is an exquisite slice of whimsy riding a near-perfect guitar riff, with an emotional reach that shames most peers of songwriter Bid.
Included in this reissue are two bonus tracks. The single “Cast A Long Shadow” and “J.D.H.A.N.E.Y.”
