I don’t know you, but TEARS FOR FEARS 1989 album ”The Seeds Of Love” is a very good one in my book, and now is getting a Super Deluxe 4xCD Box Set Remastered reissue that really worth to check out. This is a true ‘Super Deluxe’, with a lot a new things to discover.
To transform from a bedsit synth-pop outfit with a thing for prim diction to a global phenomenon projecting miserabilist pensées at arena scale must have ground TEARS FOR FEARS into a fine powder. Relaxing in a Kansas City hotel bar while promoting 1985’s quintuple-platinum Songs from the Big Chair, singer-guitarist-songwriter Roland Orzabal and singer-bassist Curt Smith were entranced by Oleta Adams, the Seattle-born R&B singer at the piano. Something went off in Orzabal’s mind.
A couple years later, deep into recording their third album, he contacted Adams with a request: would she join their sessions?
And with her, TEARS FOR FEARS recorded the best song from their career; ‘Woman In Chains’.

What became ”The Seeds of Love” resulted from hundreds of hours of peripatetic experimentation, and, when the sessions stretched almost four years, probably just seemed pathetic to their dismayed label. By this time even Phil Collins and fretless bass wonder Pino Palladino had been enlisted alongside Adams.
”The Seeds of Love” was released 1989, and first single “Sowing the Seeds of Love” peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 in October for the sake of Fontana/Mercury’s promo department.

This UMe’s fulsome box set, packed with single / radio versions, jam sessions, alternate mixes, all the album B-sides, and a remaster of the original, brings something meaty to discover on this album and its extensive recording sessions.
Highly Recommended
