The Human League reissues Dare/Fascination

| On 25, Feb 2012

TWO-DISC DELUXE REISSUE OF THE SEMINAL 1981 ALBUM AND THE FOLLOW UP EP, FASCINATION, WHICH INCLUDES USA/CANADA-ONLY BONUS TRACKS, RELEASED ON MONDAY 2ND APRIL 2012

In 1980, the NME front cover proclaimed “One day all music will be made like this.” Dare! Seems unassailable as a landmark of electronic pop, synthesizers and digital equipment as modern pop’s standard tools.

Open Your Heart and the classic single Don’t You Want Me were hits on both sides of the Atlantic, the latter a UK Number 1, which ensured Dare! topped the British charts. At the time, Dare! appealed to housewives and students, electronic boffins and people who bought one record a year. Thirty years on, both the above tracks and ‘The Things That Dreams Are Made Of’ are still the most in demand in their live set.

The two disc set will feature 6 postcards, 2 wallets and a 16 page booklet.

Front cover – white/Dare
Back cover – black/Fascination
