Album artwork for Play / Record by Virna Lindt

this is the first time on cd for 'play / record', the second album by swedish pop sophisticate virna lindt, originally released by the compact organisation in 1985. written and produced by virna lindt during a three-week holiday in london, 'play / record' tackles girls who cannot stand the colour red, the numbing effect of the new media, and subterfuge and skulduggery in her adopted home town (the single 'my home town'). the album has been digitally remastered by close collaborator tot taylor, and now sounds even more immaculate than before. unfortunately virna abandoned music forever after creating 'play / record', leaving the world a poorer place. the album conveys a sense of breezy, delirious sixties camp. arch instrumentals such as the title track and 'add it up' are nothing short of wondrous, and the album is a delightful and accurate evocation of a period when music was allowed to be fun. the cd features a deluxe 12 page booklet featuring original artwork and liner / recording notes. on ltm.
