Paul Young's solo debut No Parlez, released in 1983, was one of the most popular albums of the 1980s in the UK. Released in July 83, the album become a commercial phenomenon, taking up residence in the top 10 where it remained for an astonishing 32 consecutive weeks (baring one seven day spell at #11) until March 1984. It features the top 10 hits 'Wherever I Lay My Hat (That's My Home)' (#1), 'Come Back and Stay' (#4) and 'Love of the Common People' (#2).

Now, four decades on, this titan of 80s pop is getting a literal super deluxe treatment with an SDE-exclusive blu-ray audio edition that will surely be the last word on No Parlez, with no fewer than EIGHT different audio mixes, including a brand new immersive Dolby Atmos Mix, a 5.1 mix, a new stereo mix and much more.

All the original 24-track, two-inch analogue tapes were located, heat-treated ('baked') and captured to digital in startling 192 kHz/24-bit clarity. The process sees the album meticulously rebuilt in stereo, with painstaking attention to detail, before the immersive audio Atmos and 5.1 mixes are created. This is detailed and time-consuming work and there is nothing automated about it! Producer and artist David Kosten has undertaken this work (he created the Atmos Mix for Mike Oldfield's Tubular Bells) and No Parlez will never sound better!

There are EIGHT versions of No Parlez on this blu-ray audio with the first six (below) featuring 3 bonus tracksBehind Your Smile (B-side), Yours (B-side) and I've Been Lonely For So Long (No Parlez outtake).
