On September 25th All About Eve’s self-titled debut album and the follow up "Scarlet and Other Stories" are released in expanded versions by Universal Music Catalogue.


Formed in the mid 80’s, All About Eve, fronted by Juliane Regan, released a series of successful independent singles leading to the band being signed by Phonogram. “All About Eve” was recorded in the summer of 1987, the album was produced by Paul Samwell-Smith (Cat Stevens, Jethro Tull) with sessions beginning at Surrey’s Ridge Farm before moving on to Richard Branson’s Manor Studios in rural Oxfordshire.

The first single to be released was a re-recording of live favourite ‘In The Clouds’ which entered the UK chart at No.47 in October. 1988 kicked off with a further single, ‘Wild Hearted Woman’ (UK Chart position No.33), followed by the eponymous titled album’s debut into the Top Ten. A subsequent headlining tour of the UK took up the rest of the year and included sold out shows at London’s Hammersmith Odeon and The Royal Albert Hall.

Three further singles went on to be released from the album, Every Angel (UK Chart No.30), the classic Martha’s Harbour (UK No.10) and What Kind of Fool (UK Chart No.29). The album would go on to sell 250,000 in the UK alone.

This double CD collection covers the original album, which originally reached No.7 in the UK album chart, all the 12” singles, B sides and extended mixes from the singles ‘Our Summer’ to ‘What Kind of Fool’.
