This is the first expanded edition re-issue of Marc Almond's 4th solo album, "The Stars We Are", since it's original release in September 1988. This re-issue is a three disc set that, on it's first disc, couples the original 10-track album with it's initial release's CD and cassette only bonus tracks and with the B-Sides of it's associated singles. A second CD features all known extended and remix versions of the album tracks. A third disc, a DVD (Region 0, PAL), compiles all six of the promotional videos filmed for the album, including the Tim Pope directed 'Bitter-Sweet' and the alternate U. S. version video of 'Tears Run Rings' as directed by Peter 'Sleazy' Christopherson of Coil and Throbbing Gristle fame. The album was recorded with an assembled band 'La Magia' which comprised of former Willing Sinners members Annie Hogan, Billie McGee and Steve Humphries as a core unit. The album is a shimmering arc of musical textures, compulsive melodrama and euphoric uplift. As well as further singles 'Bitter-Sweet' (UK#40) and 'Only The Moment' (UK#45), the album contains an homage to goth sensibilities in 'Your Kisses Burn', a duet with Nico (her last ever studio recording), as well as an extravagant mini-operetta, 'Kept Boy', a duet with cult chanteuse Agnes Bernelle. Packaged in a mini-LP style capacity wallet, this expanded edition contains sleeve notes from celebrated cult poet and biographer, Jeremy Reed as part of a richly illustrated full colour 36 page lyric booklet.
