Scallywag Jaz: Expanded 30th Anniversary Edition [Import] on CD

Digitally remastered and expanded 30th anniversary edition of Thomas Lang's acclaimed debut album, Scallywag Jaz from 1987. This edition contains no fewer than 26 bonus tracks. Thomas Lang's honeyed tenor tones drew comparisons, at the time of it's original release, with the smooth, sultry jazz drenched moods of Sade and the warmth and expressive inflections of Alison Moyet. For sure, Thomas Lang had a big, classy voice and an easy, dashing elegance. His debut album was written with, and co-produced by, one of the leading Merseyside musicians of the day, David A. Hughes who had previous associations with local acts Dalek I Love You, OMD and The Lotus Eaters and who would go on to forge a notable career composing for film and television. Thomas Lang has been enthusiastically involved in making this deluxe reissue such a comprehensive celebration of the songs herein. Every single b-side from the related singles has been included as have variant versions, demos and live versions of key album tracks. A special inclusion are two all new songs called 'Scared' and 'I Believe' that confirm Thomas Lang's ongoing power as a foremost song stylist. Other rarities include the debut appearance of the first ever song to emerge from the Thomas Lang and David A. Hughes songwriting partnership, 'Red' and the first version of, perhaps, one of the most commercial sounding tracks ever recorded by Thomas, the rousing 'The More That You Expect'.
