Rhino have created a new compilation of New Wave Hits for their Back to the 80s vinyl reissue campaign and this 10-track compilation will be pressed on blue/red ‘swirl’ vinyl.
Sometimes less is more and I quite like the simplicity of this set, even if the selections are familiar enough, with Duran Duran, a-ha, Kajagoogoo, Talk Talk and Dream Academy all represented. Joy Division add a bit of grit at the end.
New Wave Hits will be released on 27 July 2018.
