The featured period spans her eight singles and two studio albums over the period of 1983-6, while Tracie was signed firstly to Paul Weller’s label, Respond Records, and then to Polydor Records for the release of two singles and the then unreleased second album, ‘No Smoke Without Fire’. This was subsequently released in 2014 on Cherry Red Records. The exclusive DVD brings together her original promo videos, rare footage of Tracie’s appearances at the BBC and a live performance filmed in Japan in 1984.
CD 1 is centred around the ten-track debut album ‘Far From The Hurting Kind’, originally released in 1984 plus ten bonus tracks. The album opener, (I Love You) When You Sleep was written by Elvis Costello. CD 2 features the ten tracks of Tracie’s second album, ‘No Smoke Without Fire’, plus eight related bonus tracks. CD 3 features rarities from Tracie’s catalogue including six tracks appearing on CD for the first time. CD 4 includes previously unreleased live performances recorded by Tokyo FM recorded live in Japan, plus tracks recorded by the BBC for their In Concert series, along with many remixes.
The DVD features several original promo videos plus Tracie’s memorable 1985 appearance on Wogan to perform ‘I Can’t Leave You Alone’, and ‘The House That Jack Built’ on the seminal children’s programme Cheggars Plays Pop. The DVD also features a seven-track live performance recorded on May 4 1984 at Nakano Sun-plaza Hall in Tokyo.
Compilers’ note: The DVD has been compiled using the best available source material. Where any such sources weren’t ideal, the compilers felt that those clips should be retained as their historical interest to fans outweighs any technical limitations.
