Info

Exorcising Ghosts is a compilation album by the British band Japan, released in October 1984 by record label Virgin. Exorcising Ghosts was compiled and produced in consultation with lead singer David Sylvian two years after Japan dissolved. It features three recordings from the band's early career on the Hansa Records label such as 1979's Quiet Life but mainly focuses on material from their two studio albums on Virgin Records Gentlemen Take Polaroids 1980 and Tin Drum 1981. Exorcising Ghosts - Japan. Лента с персональными рекомендациями и музыкальными новинками, радио, подборки на любой вкус, удобное управление своей коллекцией. Album 1984 11 Songs. Exorcising Ghosts. That all said, though, if one needs to have a useful enough starting point for what made Japan so great, Exorcising Ghosts is a reasonable way to start. The emphasis is entirely on the moody, melancholic but energetic phase of Japan's career - there's nothing earlier than a couple of cuts from Quiet Life, and any hint of the band's trash glam rock start is carefully and quietly ignored. Album Exorcising Ghosts by Japan with lyrics: Methods Of Dance,Swing,Gentlemen Take Polaroids,Quiet Life,A Foreign Place,Nightporter,My New Career,The Other Side Of Life,Visions Of China,Taking Islands In Africa,Ghosts. Taking Islands In Africa Steve Nye Remix on vinyl release only. Sons Of Pioneers on vinyl release only. Released October 1984. Exorcising Ghosts Tracklist. Methods of Dance Lyrics. The first of several compilation albums released after Japans breakup, Exorcising Ghosts is difficult to label as anything in particular it is not a greatest hits, singles collection or B-sides album, though it can perhaps be seen as Virgins response to Hansa-Ariolas Assemblage.

NB. The CD omits five tracks which were included on the original double album: Swing, A Foreign Place, Taking Islands In Africa, Sons Of Pioneers, and Voices Raised in Welcome, Hands Held In Prayer - rendering this a very unsatisfactory version.

Yes, 'unsatisfactory' understates it, Swing and Taking Islands being two of the band's very best studio tracks. I was very disappointed, having upgraded the vinyl to CD only to realise my favourites had been surreptitiously omitted!
