"Non-Stop Immersive Cabaret"
Soft Cell's 1981 album Non-Stop Erotic Cabaret is one of the most influential and iconic albums that emerged from the 1980s.
A critical and commercial success, Marc Almond and Dave Ball's debut paved the way for countless synth-based music duos, fashioning something dark and distinctive with a hint of pop that helped kick-start a new decade.
The album features three massive UK hit singles including the chart-topping Tainted Love, the best-selling UK single of 1981 which enjoyed phenomenal success in America and helped open up the U.S. for alternative and electronic artists such as The Cure and Depeche Mode.
Initially released in November 1981, the 10-track song cycle, in the words of Marc Almond, “Tells a story of a bored ordinary bloke seething with his life wanting more and looking for excitement and adventure in a red neon lit Soho world of red-light cabarets, prostitutes and sex dwarves, looking back at his youth and wondering what happened.”
This SDE-exclusive blu-ray audio edition offers you a Non-Stop Immersive Cabaret, featuring a brand new 2023 Dolby Atmos Mix of Non-Stop Erotic Cabaret created at Abbey Road Studios under the supervision of the band. Additionally, three non-album singles Memorabilia, Torch and What! are also included in Dolby Atmos. So this blu-ray includes all FIVE of Soft Cell's UK top 10 singles!
Instrumentals of the album and the three bonus tracks are also included in Dolby Atmos and the same 13 tracks also feature in the original 1981 stereo mix, remastered. If that's not enough, four original Tim Pope promo videos for ‘Bedsitter’, ‘Say Hello Wave Goodbye’, ‘Torch’ and ‘What!’, available physically in HD for the very first time.
