Eurythmics To Release Iconic Studio Albums On Vinyl & Are Nominated For Induction Into Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame

Eurythmics
One of the most revered and respected pop groups of the 1980s, Eurythmics, with over 20 international hits and 80 million albums sold, are set to re-release their 8 RCA studio albums on vinyl and are nominated for the 2018 induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Spanning their entire career, the albums will be released by Sony Music between April and October 2018, starting with In The Garden (1981), Sweet Dreams (1983) and Touch (1983) on April 13, 2018, followed by Be Yourself Tonight (1985), Revenge (1986) and Savage (1987) in July 2018 and We Too Are One (1989) and Peace (1999) in October 2018. This will be the first time that Peace will be available on vinyl, as the original release was only available in two formats: CD and cassette.

Now, Dave and Annie are enjoying their nomination for induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in America. Dave said,
Being British, we never thought that the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame had anything to do with us. So when we were nominated, we thought, ‘What?!’ And then we saw there were other British acts, like Depeche Mode and Dire Straits. They are incredible legends, and we’re honored to be nominated.
Annie adds
It’s lovely and flattering.

Also new from Eurythmics: an 11-minute unique video EURYTHMIX retrospective compiled and mixed by DJ Earworm and sourced from 23 Eurythmics  videos from 1983 to 2005. The songs included are: “Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This),” “Who’s That Girl?,” “I Need a Man,” “(I Love to Listen to) Beethoven,” “Sexcrime (Nineteen Eighty-Four),” “Julia,” “Thorn In My Side,” “Love Is a Stranger,” “It’s Alright (Baby’s Coming Back),” “Revival,” “I Saved the World Today,” “Here Comes The Rain Again,” “Would I Lie to You?,” “There Must Be an Angel (Playing With My Heart),” “Angel,” “Sisters Are Doin’ It for Themselves,” “Missionary Man,” “When Tomorrow Comes,” “The King and Queen of America,” “17 Again,” “You Have Placed a Chill in My Heart,” “Don’t Ask Me Why,” “I’ve Got a Life” and a reprise of “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This).”


As for the release of the eight Eurythmics albums on vinyl, Annie calls the event “extraordinary.” Dave adds,
To buy a vinyl album, you have to have a record player and you have to have speakers, and this is a great thing because that means people are going to listen to your music not on a cell phone, but they’re going to listen to it out of a sound system, which is what we all did when we were growing up. The important thing about vinyl releases is that people buy them and actually put them on the turntable and listen to a side, because we chose the tracks to be played in a particular order, and that was really important.

Listening to the career-spanning set of eight albums, one realizes why Eurythmics were so acclaimed by critics and fans alike, and why they won so many awards, including an MTV Music Video Award for Best New Artist in 1984, a Grammy for Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group in 1987, three Ivor Novello Awards, a Brit Award  in 1999 for Outstanding Contribution to British music (plus 10 more Brit Awards for Stewart and Lennox), a Silver Clef Award in 2000, as well as the duo’s 2005 induction into the U.K. Music Hall of Fame and 26 ASCAP Awards to “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)” for most performed song of the year.

The eight Eurythmics RCA studio albums being released on vinyl in 2018 will all feature the original artwork, illustrations and liner notes.
