One of the most revered and respected pop groups of the 1980s, Eurythmics, with more than 20 international hits and 80 million albums sold, is in the spotlight once again, both for their nomination for the 2018 induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and the re-release of their eight studio albums on vinyl. Spanning their entire career, the albums will be released by RCA/Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment 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.
"Just when everyone thought they'd figured out what Eurythmics were all about, Stewart and Lennox threw a giant curveball with their fourth album, Be Yourself Tonight, a radical musical departure.
"Swapping their synthesisers for guitars, guests and gospel singers, the duo realised their ambition of recording an album that paid homage to Motown and classic soul. They were intent on progressing through the latter half of the Eighties with a new sound, a new look and a new confidence, something exemplified by the album's opening bombast of 'Would I Lie To You?'
"Their reinvention was quickly affirmed when the positively euphoric "There Must Be An Angel (Playing With My Heart)" awarded them their first U.K. No. 1 single. Elsewhere, they enlisted the services of Aretha Franklin for 'Sisters Are Doin' It For Themselves,' a rallying anthem of female empowerment.
"Elvis Costello's guest spot on 'Adrian' was another highlight, as was the sublime single 'It's Alright (Baby's Coming Back),' stylistically a digital take on Dusty Springfield's 1969 album Dusty In Memphis. An obvious labor of love, Be Yourself Tonight presented a reinvented Eurythmics." — Classic Pop Magazine
