Esoteric Recordings is proud to announce the release of a new re-mastered and expanded 2 CD edition of "Drastic Plastic" the classic1978 album by BE BOP DELUXE. "Drastic Plastic" would be the final Be Bop Deluxe album and was recorded in the summer of 1978 in the South of France at The Villa Saint Georges, Juan-les-Pins, utilising the Rolling Stones mobile studio, with final sessions taking place at The Manor Studio and Abbey Road Studios. The record saw BILL NELSON (vocals, guitars, keyboards), CHARLES TUMAHAI (bass, vocals), ANDY CLARK (keyboards) and SIMON FOX (drums) venture into new musical styles, with the album being ground-breaking in it's move to more "art rock" and "new wave" influences. In many ways it can be seen as the signpost to where Bill Nelson would head with his RED NOISE project with a desire to continue to progress as an artist by pushing musical boundaries. Co-produced by BILL NELSON and JOHN LECKIE, "Drastic Plastic" was another hit album in both the UK and the USA and featured such classic material as 'Electrical Language', 'Panic in the World', 'New Mysteries', 'Islands of the Dead' and 'Surreal Estate'. The recording sessions produced many more tracks which would appear as singles (such as Japan) and others that were originally planned for release as an EP set ('Autosexual', 'Lovers are Mortal', 'Speed of the Wind', 'Quest for the Harvest of the Stars', 'Face in the Rain'), all of which eventually appeared on the retrospective compilation The Best of & the Rest Of... later in 1978. This expanded reissue has been newly re-mastered from the original master tapes and features an additional 25 tracks, drawn from stunning stereo mixes from the original multi-track tapes by award winning engineer Stephen W. Tayler and non-album singles and additional tracks recorded for an intended EP. This set also includes a lavishly illustrated booklet with many previously unseen photographs and an essay of recollections by Bill Nelson. This new re-mastered and expanded edition of "Drastic Plastic" is a fitting tribute to the creative vision of Bill Nelson and the musicianship of Be Bop Deluxe.

All New Items on flyvintageandvinyl.com are Priced Below MSRP
and do not reflect our in-store prices and are not necessarily in stock at our physical store.
In fact, most items won’t be because we’re a small, family run business and don’t have space to stock nearly 500,000 new titles.

Separate Shopping Carts for New and Used Items
Because new items available on flyvintageandvinyl.com are fulfilled by our distributor and used items available on used.flyvintageandvinyl.com
(via the “Buy Used” button above) are fulfilled by us at our physical store, they require separate shopping carts and checkout procedures.
It’s a minor inconvenience, but we’ll try to make it worth your while with our selection, ultrasonic-cleaned used records and competitive prices.
Shipping within the U.S. is $5 for the first LP plus 50¢ for each additional LP via USPS Media Mail.

A Note About Pre-Orders
Orders containing both pre-orders and “Available to Order” items from flyvintageandvinyl.com will be shipped in one package when the pre-order title(s) is/are released.

International Orders, Box Sets and Larger Items
may incur an additional shipping fee and we’ll notify you by email before we process your order. Customs forms for international orders are marked as "Merchandise"
and we are not responsible for any additional customs fees when packages arrive at their destination country. Select items aren't allowed to be shipped outside the U.S.
and we’ll issue a refund for these if export restrictions apply. We reserve the right to limit quantities on select items.
