Camino del Sol is to get a new lease on life with a release of the debut album later this month from the French-Belgian trio which first hit the shelves and the airwaves back in 1982.
The album has been described as having a kind of electro-samba beat with some mixed in bossa nova and compared to the sounds of Sade, X-Ray, and Arto Lindsay.
The album had previously been reissued in 2004 on Numero Group and in 2010 while Permanent Vacation also released an expanded, remixed version in 2007.
This version has been newly remastered and is also an extended version on the original label Les Disques Du Crepuscule. It includes bonus cuts and previously unreleased live concert recordings which were recorded during the band’s 1982 tour.
Among the cuts include the band’s debut single “The Boy From Ipanema” which was produced by John Foxx while the concert was recorded alongside Cabaret Voltaire, 23 Skidoo, Tuxedomoon and Pale Fountains.
