Another retro-post for a playlist I created, an Erasure hits compilation.

My brother-in-law asked me to create a “Best of Erasure” CD many years ago (Shout out, Eastman). In doing so, I thought of duplicating the Pop! The First 20 Hits album but never considered that a good compilation effort. As I was in art school then, I combined this request with a design assignment for CD cover artwork.

One of the bigger differences was a brilliant mix of Cold Summer’s Day from a remixer by the name of Marky. It was a hybrid of the original from the documentary movie Wigstock, and the Tin Tin Out remix of Fingers and Thumbs. I can’t seem to find his version anywhere on the net, but it was available during those times and is part of my collection.

Eraserhead was chosen as its name, a nod to the movie from which they named themselves, and echoed a motif in the cover design. I’ll have to dig up the artwork sometime of these Erasure hits.

I’ve added this playlist to my Spotify account.
