RALP315 - Fra Lippo Lippi: Golden Slumbers - The Very Best Of (LP)
The limited edition (500) on white vinyl is sold out.
The current edition is on black vinyl.
Fra Lippo Lippi released six studio albums between 1981 and 1992, two of them on Virgin Records, namely "Songs" in 1986 and "Light And Shade" (1987, produced by Walter Becker). All the original releases were deleted many years ago. There are two previous The Best Of Fra Lippo Lippi releases on CD (1995 and 2003), but this is the first on vinyl. With the limited playing time of vinyl, we had to make some tough decisions, but in the end the song selection very much gave itself. The dark horse here is "Stitches and Burns", an overlooked gem of a song from the final studio album "Dreams" (1992) that didn´t make the previous 15 track collection, but in mysterious ways gained new life through organic streaming, with over 20 million YouTube views. Included is also the international hit "Shouldn´t Have To Be Like That" and "Angel", featuring the late, great Walter Becker on guitar and production duties.
